CD PROJEKT RED's own investor relations account tweeted out some information in the last 24 hours, where Cyberpunk 2077 enjoyed a huge 8 million pre-orders. Now the best part here is that 59% of these sales were on the PC, while just 41% of Cyberpunk 2077's pre-orders came from consoles.

It seems from these statistics that Cyberpunk 2077 is the biggest PC launch of all time, with Blizzard recently announcing its newly-released World of Warcraft: Shadowlands expansion was the fastest-selling PC game ever... yeah well, Blizzard can eat a fat one from Cyberpunk 2077 it seems.

CDPR is the new king of PC gaming records. 59% of Cyberpunk 2077 sales on PC (with just pre-orders let alone post-launch sales) means around 4.7 million copies of Cyberpunk 2077 have been sold on the PC.
