More than six months after Sony pulled Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation store unprecedentedly, developer CD Projekt confirmed today in a regulatory announcement the game will be returning to the PlayStation store on June 21st.
According to the statement, the company “publicly discloses the decision by Sony Interactive Entertainment to reinstate the availability of the digital edition of Cyberpunk 2077 on PlayStation Store, effective on 21 June 2021.”
Cyberpunk 2077 was released on December 10, 2020 on PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series X/S and Google Stadia. The game was riddled with bugs and was practically unplayable on last-gen consoles forcing Sony to remove it from its PlayStation store and issuing refunds to customers. Microsoft followed suit by offering refunds and CD Projekt Red also pledged refunds to customers who made digital and physical purchases of the game.
In order to fix the game, CD Projekt Red has released numerous hotfixes and patches but it is not clear yet the extent to which the game has been fixed. Despite the embattled launch of the hugely anticipated game, CDPR enjoyed its biggest financial results ever in 2020 thanks to Cyberpunk 2077. The game became the biggest ever in its history.
As spotted by IGN earlier today, the game can be seen on the PlayStation store again when searched, and it now appears with the “Just Announced” tag. It can be purchased yet but it can only be added to wishlist or redownloaded by those who already own the game.
In a statement to Polygon, Sony confirmed the return to the PlayStation store but warned it still has problems on the base PS4. “SIE can confirm that Cyberpunk 2077 will be re-listed on PlayStation Store starting June 21, 2021,” a Sony spokesperson said. “Users will continue to experience performance issues with the PS4 edition while CD Projekt Red continues to improve stability across all platforms. SIE recommends playing the title on PS4 Pro or PS5 for the best experience.”
