In a statement from Sony posted on its website yesterday, the company announced it pulled Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store “until further notice.”
Sony is also offering refunds to those who purchased the game from the PlayStation Store. It could take a few days for folks to see their refunds, but they can start the process by clicking here.
Those who purchased Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store can still re-download it — the announcement applies to the listing itself. Also, the game will still receive updates from developer CD Projekt Red. As per usual, they’ll have to go through Sony’s channels first before being pushed out.
It sounds like CD Projekt Red knew this would happen. CD Projekt’s board of directors said Sony’s decision “was undertaken following our discussion with [Sony Interactive Entertainment] regarding a full refund for all gamers who had purchased Cyberpunk 2077 via PlayStation Store and want a refund at this time.”
In a separate statement on Twitter, CD Projekt Red said it’s “working hard to bring Cyberpunk 2077 back to PlayStation Store as soon as possible.”
Although Cyberpunk 2077 has been a financial success for CD Projekt Red, the game has been criticized for its performance on the PS4 and Xbox One. The developer said upcoming patches should improve things, but to what extent will remain an unknown until they’re available.
