Cyberpunk 2077 has endured quite a messy release despite having been lathered with praise by critics (ourselves included). Unfortunately, its troubles certainly aren’t over with Sony pulling the game from the PlayStation Store.
Sony also issued a statement promising PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players full refunds for those who bought the game via the PS Store. The company prompts those who want a refund to visit their official website to submit a request.
Here’s the full statement on the PlayStation website:
SIE strives to ensure a high level of customer satisfaction, therefore we will begin to offer a full refund for all gamers who have purchased Cyberpunk 2077 via PlayStation Store. SIE will also be removing Cyberpunk 2077 from PlayStation Store until further notice.
Once we have confirmed that you purchased Cyberpunk 2077 via PlayStation Store, we will begin processing your refund. Please note that completion of the refund may vary based on your payment method and financial institution.
Interestingly, if one were to search for Cyberpunk 2077 on the PS Store at the time of writing, they would end up with something like this:
Of course, those who choose to opt out of a refund will still be able to play the game on their system as updates and patches can still technically be downloaded onto the game. Whether CD Projekt Red actually releases said updates officially, despite the game having been taken down from the PS Store, remains to be seen.
CD Projekt Red’s reputation certainly took quite a hit following the rather messy release of Cyberpunk 2077. Hopefully it manages to fix the many issues that currently plague the game across all the platforms it released on, most especially on last-gen consoles, before it can be released back onto official physical and digital retailers.
Also, the game’s Tweet back in 2018 certainly didn’t age well (thanks, Kotaku):
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
