Sony has removed Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store. The company is responding to the poor state of the game and the numerous complaints from players. Affected customers can request a refund of the purchase price immediately.
The drama surrounding Cyberpunk 2077 went into the next round. Sony confirmed last night that sales in the PlayStation Store had been stopped. The console manufacturer is reacting to the poor state in which the role-playing game from CD Projekt was published.
At the same time, Sony announced that customers who are not satisfied with Cyberpunk 2077 can request a refund of the purchase price. For this purpose, a page was set up dedicated to the topic.
First of all, it is verified that the players have bought Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store. After that, the company will start processing your refund. Please note that the time it takes to complete a refund may vary depending on the payment method and credit institution.
The sales freeze and hassle-free refunds are a radical step. However, several editors issued a purchase warning in advance, as the performance on the last-gen consoles fell short of basic quality requirements.
The title runs much better on the new PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles. But the fact remains, Cyberpunk 2077 is a game that was announced, advertised and sold for PS4 and Xbox One. Only the postponement of the title created a situation where the new consoles are already lingering on the market. A total of 8 million copies of Cyberpunk 2077 were sold in advance.
The fact that CD Projekt deliberately left console players in the dark about the state of Cyberpunk 2077 has also caused negative headlines in the past few days. Before the launch, only the PC version that made the best impression was allowed to be tested. There were high scores that were later corrected downwards in many cases.
CD Projekt emphasized several times during the week that Cyberpunk 2077 should be improved. At least one additional patch can be expected this year. Further updates will follow in January and February 2021. When Cyberpunk 2077 will return to the PlayStation Store is currently unclear.
