Cyberpunk 2077 was pulled from the PlayStation Store shortly after the game launched due to a myriad of issues with bugs and performance. When it occurred, many thought it would be a matter of days before the title returned to PSN, but it took over six months before CD Projekt Red got the game in good enough shape for Sony to acquiesce. Later this month, Cyberpunk 2077 will finally return to the PS Store, albeit with a caveat.
When is Cyberpunk 2077 returning to the PS Store?
In a recent regulatory disclosure, CD Projekt Red announced that Cyberpunk 2077 would be allowed to return to the PlayStation Store. Polygon also confirmed with Sony that the game would be offered for sale again digitally on PlayStation consoles, but it also offered a warning:
“SIE can confirm that Cyberpunk 2077 will be re-listed on PlayStation Store starting June 21, 2021. Users will continue to experience performance issues with the PS4 edition while CD Projekt Red continues to improve stability across all platforms. SIE recommends playing the title on PS4 Pro or PS5 for the best experience.”
So, those with a base PS4 or PS4 Slim will still face performance problems when attempting to play the game on those consoles. Unfortunately, this is just the latest bad news concerning CD Projekt Red’s disastrous handling of Cyberpunk 2077. Even after major patches, the game is riddled with glitches and performance issues that the studio knew were there, according to leaked internal bug montages.
Despite a promise by CD Projekt Red to fix Cyberpunk, including a vague roadmap, the game is still filled with issues like broken pedestrian AI, dumb traffic, and a laughably basic police response system. In addition, the free DLC planned for the game hasn’t been announced and paid post-launch content is likely delayed until 2022.
It remains to be seen if the devs can salvage Cyberpunk 2077, or if the studio will prop it up with patches and cut its losses.
