Cyberpunk 2077 is the top-selling game on steam

Including the pre-order period, Cyberpunk 2077 has maintained its #1 spot for a seventh week in a row. This is an unusual trend, and only a few games have achieved this feat before CD Projekt RED’s action RPG.

Despite the claims regarding the game’s several bugs and below satisfactory performance on current-gen consoles, Cyberpunk 2077 has sold over 13 million copies worldwide. If the developers fix some of the glaring issues, Cyberpunk 2077 soon entering the list of top 50 best-selling games of all time wouldn’t be a surprise.

Despite releasing in 2013, GTA 5 and Rust are top sellers in 2021

Rust is a multiplayer-only survival video game developed by Facepunch Studios. The game released on early access in 2013 and received its full release in 2018. It is now witnessing a sudden surge in its users, thanks to over 50 streamers, like Shroud and Pokimane, who are playing it on Twitch.

Another title from 2013, GTA 5, is still a top seller in 2021, and even Daniel Ahmad finds this trend astonishing.

Last, but not least, Sea of Thieves is currently offering a 50% discount for promotion. As a result, it has climbed up the charts and secured the second position this week. Despite being available on the Xbox Game Pass, Sea of Thieves has been a consistent name in the top-selling list on Steam.
