Over two and a half years since its disastrous launch, Cyberpunk 2077’s Steam user review rating has been upgraded to “very positive.”
At the time of writing, 80% of the 546,249 user reviews for the game are positive, according to Valve.
CD Projekt Red’s global community director Marcin Momot highlighted the game’s upgraded review status in a Twitter post thanking players for the positive feedback.
“Cyberpunk 2077 Steam reviews are now sitting at ‘Very Positive’ with 80% of all scores being favourable,” he wrote. “Thank you all for acknowledging all the hard work the team has put in over the years since the release!”
The sci-fi RPG was one of the most highly-anticipated games of the last console generation, but things went badly wrong for CD Projekt when it finally arrived in December 2020.
After three delays, the game released for PC and consoles with a host of technical problems, resulting in refunds being offered, the game being pulled from the PlayStation Store, and CD Projekt facing lawsuits alleging it misled investors over the quality of the title.
Following six months of patches designed to improve the game, it returned to Sony’s online marketplace in June 2021, when CD Projekt said it believed Cyberpunk 2077‘s performance had reached a “satisfying” level.
CD Projekt is currently preparing to launch Cyberpunk 2077’s Phantom Liberty expansion in September, which is said to make even more significant improvements to the base game.
Phantom Liberty will entirely overhaul the way Cyberpunk 2077 is played, according to CD Projekt.
In an interview last month, creative director Pawel Sasko and quest designer Despoina Anetaki told VGC that “all the core main systems” of the game have been “redone or updated in a major way”.
