Cyberpunk 2077 back in UK top 10 for first time this year – Games charts 17 April

FIFA 21 is number one in the UK again but the real surprise is the reappearance of Cyberpunk 2077 for the first time since launch.

The disaster of Cyberpunk 2077’s launch is something that’s going to be studied for years, given its unique achievement of making almost every possible mistake for a new video game.

Pre-orders were such that it still resulted in an enormous profit for CD Projekt but it quickly left the UK top 10 a few weeks after launch. Now it’s back though, if only because it’s starting to get discounted at retail.

There’s certainly no other movement of note in the chart and unlikely to be any until the end of the month, unless the NieR Replicant remaster can prove to be another surprise hit next week.
