Finally, this long wait has ended. Cyberpunk 2077 by CD Project RED became a reality after eight years of its announcement.
The official game release happened on December 10, but we could observe the Night City from the inside on December 9, because some streamers and journalists received press-access, and the devs allowed to show the game on the streams.
The game achieved 1,1M Peak Viewers on Twitch, and, at the moment, the game is the most popular single-player on the platform. Let’s find out more about the results of the pre-release day.
The pre-release day was an excellent opportunity for new streamers’ records. Moreover, Cyberpunk 2077 became the TOP-2 category by Peak Channels - 35K. Only Fortnite is ahead - 132K Peak Channels. This record was achieved on December 1 during Galactus Event.
There were no sharp drops in Hours Watched, and the dynamics remained positive all the time. We also determined who dominated the platform and for how long. Shroud was №1 most of the time, and its broadcast peak was reached at 12:00 GMT +0 - 128K Peak Viewers.
Rubius substituted Shroud periodically and at 19:00 GMT +0, he reached his peak of the broadcast - 137K viewers. After the end of their streams, such channels as moistcr1tikal, maximilian_dood and cohhcarnage took the first place.
In general, a pre-release day created one more hype wave for the game. You can find a more detailed review and Cyberpunk 2077 results analytics by hours in Streams Charts blog.
