Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077 is quite arguably one of the biggest releases of all time. The numbers are staggering and according to CDPR, over 8 million people pre-ordered the game. This is also one of the rare instances where the game actually outsold the console version. Unlike The Witcher 3 and other CDPR titles, Cyberpunk 2077 has a launcher that shows up when you launch the game. If you want to skip the Cyberpunk 2077 launcher, and directly start the game, here is how you can do it.

This isn’t a big issue, but there isn’t anything the launcher does apart from sharing some news and allowing you to select other games to launch. There are already so many clients to manage on PC, and this is just another one.
