Lots of people are very excited to be jumping into Nighty City and doing all sort of future stuff.

How to fix this issue with Steam not downloading Cyberpunk 2077

In the event your game really isn't installing or downloading correctly, then there are a couple of fixes you can try to get things going.

For starters, make sure your internet connection is still going strong. Restart your router if you're worried it's plotting against you.

Next, make sure there's enough room for the game to download fully. If there's been an error with the storage then you might have an issue.

Finally, pause and restart the download. If this doesn't seem to be working, it might be necessary to cancel the download completely and then start it again.
