The load on Steam after the start of preloading Cyberpunk 2077 has tripled

Judging by the statistics on downloads on Steam, which is published by Valve itself, on the evening of December 6, the data download speed in the online store was approximately 8 terabits per second. On the evening of December 7, when Cyberpunk 2077 preloaded, the download speed tripled to almost 25 terabits per second.

This was the peak load on Steam that day, which had already dropped to about 15 terabits per second on December 8. But even this speed is twice as fast as it was before the Cyberpunk 2077 preload.

Keep in mind, a similar increase in the load on Steam was observed on the eve of the release in the online store GTA V in April 2015.

Based on data on downloads on Steam and the size of Cyberpunk 2077, which is 70 gigabytes, by the morning of December 8, over a million copies of the game could have been preloaded in the online store.

Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on December 10, 2020. On PC, the game will appear on Steam, as well as in the Epic Games Store and GOG.
