Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most anticipated games to be coming out in 2020 and fans are very excited about the return of this series. The game got an immense rise in popularity when it was announced that Keanu Reeves will be a part of the game as a Non-Playable Character (NPC). But there are some elements of Cyberpunk 2077 which the gamers are not liking.

CD Projekt Red, the game developer has announced that the entire game will be in first-person perspective (FPP) which is something not everyone likes. Fans are not happy with the decision to remove the third-person perspective (TPP) option from gameplay and it could affect the sale of Cyberpunk 2077 game copies.
Cyberpunk 2077 Devs Explain Going Full FPP
It has been a topic of major discussion ever since the developer’s presentation at E3 2018 for Cyberpunk 2077. Earlier, everyone thought that Cyberpunk 2077 could be played in both FPP and TPP settings, but it is not true at all. CD Projekt Red’s global community lead Marcin Momot announced on Twitter that Cyberpunk 2077 will be 100% in the first-person mode. The developers are saying that they wanted the game to have a fully immersive experience and it is why they went with full FPP.
I've seen many commenting about @CDPROJEKTRED having "removed" third person view in cutscenes, but this is not true. While most of the cutscenes are in FPP (as intended from the start), I have read that there will still be some TPP in some of the cut scenes in #cyberpunk2077. pic.twitter.com/BkJVTQjfpO

However, fans who prefer the TPP mode are not happy and now planning to boycott Cyberpunk 2077 as they won’t be able to see their appearance as they play because the game is completely in FPP. But Momot explains that the case is different, some of the cutscenes will be in TPP and characters can be viewed in the third person while driving and looking at mirrors.
Effect on Sales of Cyberpunk 2077 Copies
Cyberpunk 2077 has received a lot of feedback for not including TPP and multiplayer options, but the makers are still confident that it will be a market success. The business analysts have been saying that the game could sell more than 20 million copies when “Cyberpunk 2077” goes live on April 16, 2020. But there are high chances that the predictions and takes time to sell such a high figure as The Witcher took four years for selling over 20 million game copies.
