Cyberpunk 2077 was removed from the PlayStation Store by Sony itself. But as speculation continues to mount over when the game will be seen again, the developer insists its close to a return. The only issue is the decision is ultimately out of its hands, and many bugs still exist.
When CD Projekt RED were developing Cybperunk 2077, I’m sure it imagined taking the gaming world by storm. However, even though the game’s launch has been unlike any other, the melodrama that ensued probably wasn’t what it expected. As a result, Sony took the unprecedented move to take the game down off its store indefinitely. So, now the developers are working round the clock to change that. And it sounds like its paying off. Maybe.
That’s because CD Projekt RED thinks a relisting may happen sooner than we think – something that was probably fuelled by the recent patch and its effects.
But as I’ve alluded to before, the final decision is Sony’s alone. And the fact that it was forced to make the decision in the first place speaks volumes over the severity of this situation. With that in mind, I don’t think Cyberpunk 2077 will be back just yet – even if the developer did hint that it’s testing the waters; you see, the following was shared with investors during a recent call:
“We have published several patches. We have just published a really big one yesterday and we have published several hotfixes. Each and every one of them brings us closer to going back to the PSN store.
“However, the final decision, you have to understand, belongs to Sony. We do believe we’re closer than further, but of course, the final call is theirs, so let’s wait and see.”
Despite this continuing stalemate, we did hear of the news this week that a native PlayStation 5 version is still on track for a 2021 launch. So, maybe that will be a more stable (read playable) game for us all to enjoy? That is if we can actually get our hands on a console…
