CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 will soon be back on sale as a digital download on the PlayStation Store, though players shouldn’t be expecting miracles.
After spending many months in exile since its release last year, Cyberpunk 2077 is coming back to the PlayStation Store as a digital download, though users should still expect to run into some issues with the game, though perhaps not as severe as on launch day.
On CDPR’s investor’s section of its website, the developer posted a disclosure notice stating that it has declared to the board of CD Projekt S.A that Cyberpunk 2077 will be reinstated on Sony’s PSN stores on June 21st, 2021.
“In relation to Current Report no. 66/2020 of 18 December 2020, the Management Board of CD PROJEKT S.A. with a registered office in Warsaw hereby 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 famously launched to a bit of a shitshow last year. After constraining day-one reviews to outlets that had played the game exclusively on high-end PC hardware, and failing to disclose just how poor the game performed on the base PS4 and Xbox One consoles, CDPR took a massive amount of flak that resulted in the game being pulled entirely from the PlayStation Store. Sony and Microsoft offered refunds to anybody who bought a digital copy of the game, something unheard of, especially with Sony – a company notoriously awful when it comes to refunds.
