Sony Pulls Cyberpunk 2077 From The PlayStation Store

After removing Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store, Sony has begun offering refunds


It’s been a rough week or so for Cyberpunk 2077. While players experiencing the game on the Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, and PC have been able to enjoy the game for the most part since it released on December 10, those playing CD PROJEKT RED’s long-awaited RPG on the base Xbox One and PlayStation 4 have faced a plethora of technical and performance issues that have made their time in Night City memorable for all the wrong reasons.

Amid player backlash, Sony has pulled Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store and has begun offering refunds for digital copies of the game.

You can find Sony’s statement regarding the decision below:

“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.”

As of this writing, CD PROJEKT RED has yet to issue a statement regarding Sony’s decision to pull the game from their storefront. Given the current state of things, we imagine it’s only a matter of time before the studio does so. As always, we’ll be sure to keep you posted when more information becomes available.

Cyberpunk 2077‘s rough launch has been one of the biggest surprises of the year. The game, which was released earlier this month after eight years in development, was one of 2020’s most anticipated releases. However, the fallout from the game’s troubled release on last-gen platforms has cost the Warsaw-based developer dearly. CD PROJEKT RED’s shares have plummeted 33% since a high earlier this month.
