“We are truly humbled that so many of you trusted us and decided to support #Cyberpunk2077 before the release!” the tweet reads. “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!”
The Tweet came with a special piece of artwork tied to the game, showing a character denoted as CD Projekt Red holding up a drink in celebration.
