The title record that sold faster on PC was from World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, expansion of the late MMO that was released in October this year. However, the feat did not last long, as the Blizzard game just lost the crown to Cyberpunk 2077, which became the best-selling game of all time in the master race.
CD Projekt Red had previously reported that Cyberpunk has shipped more than 8 million copies worldwide, with 59% of pre-orders going to PC players, which represents 4.72 million copies sold on the platform – exceeding the 3.7 million Shadowlands expansion.
We are truly humbled that so many of you trusted us and decided to support # Cyberpunk2077 before the release! Even 8 million thank yous isn’t enough! The journey has just begun and we are hard at work on the upcoming fixes and updates to the game. See you in Night City! pic.twitter.com/ycIe2kN0Zq

It is worth mentioning that this number is based on pre-sales and does not include purchases made at launch, so the final number will probably be even higher.
The proportion of players who opted to buy the game in the Master Race does not surprise anyone, since the version has several technologies, such as Ray Tracing and DLSS, which give a special touch to the visual quality of the CD Projekt game. Not to mention the recurring problems in the PS4 and Xbox One versions, which are far below what the gaming community expected.

Cyberpunk 2077 is now available for PS4, Xbox One and PC. The PS5 and Xbox Series X / S versions are also available, but they work through backward compatibility and do not have support for other technologies such as Ray Tracing, for example.
