CD Projekt Red Stock Drops 29% Around Cyberpunk 2077 Launch

Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red has seen its stock price fall in the days around the game’s launch, with a steep decline of 29%.

As reported by Gamesindustry.biz, shares are currently priced at PLN (Polish złoty) 313.9, down from PLN 443 on December 4. The decline is likely due to the release and press coverage revealing that Cyberpunk 2077 suffers from a plethora of bugs and glitches, and has notably poor performance on previous generation consoles. Such issues have spread widely via social media.

Share prices appear to have dropped since the embargo on reviews was lifted. A few days later, the release of the game did little to counterbalance the fall, with shares on December 10 slipping from PLN 390.6 to PLN 362. That’s a 7.3% decrease.

CD Projekt Red experienced an all-time high in share price back in August, with a share price of PLN 460.8 and a total market cap of 42.5 billion złoty. Overtime that has declined around the announcement of major issues, such as the reports of the studio enforcing mandatory crunch and a delay for Cyberpunk 2077.

While stock may have declined, CD Projekt Red has generated a huge amount of sales for Cyberpunk 2077; the game sold eight million copies before it even released. With over one million concurrent users on day one, it was Steam’s highest peak for a single player game.
