Cyberpunk 2077 Flies From PS Store - What Does It Mean For Buyers?

Cyberpunk 2077 Flies From PS Store - What Does It Mean For Buyers?

 You can no longer buy the PS4 version of Cyberpunk 2077 in the PS Store . Sony pulls the emergency brake. But what does that mean for those who have already bought the game?

What did Sony do? On the night of December 18, Sony removed Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store. There is still no fixed date when the title will return to the store. These changes are now active indefinitely.

Sony has confirmed that players on the PS4 or PS5 with backward compatibility will be able to receive a refund of the purchase price. There is an official announcement from Sony Interactive Entertainment Inc. (SIE) on the PlayStation website.

SIE always strives to ensure a high level of customer satisfaction. That's why we're now offering a full refund to all players who purchased Cyberpunk 2077 from PlayStation Store. SIE will also remove Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store until further notice.

Once we've verified that you purchased Cyberpunk 2077 from PlayStation Store, we'll start processing your refund. Please note that the time it takes to complete your refund may vary depending on the payment method and credit institution.

Why is this happening? The Cyberpunk 2077 version for the Last Gen has been a huge topic since the game was released on December 10th. Because with the older consoles there were some problems that plagued the gaming experience. Performance problems and numerous bugs clouded the gaming experience enormously.

  • The release of Cyberpunk 2077 has been postponed three times
  • The Internet allegations came up that the team relentlessly work overtime would
  • The reasons for the 3rd postponement were problems with the Last Gen - which is still causing problems right now, after the release 

Sony doesn't do that otherwise: It's a huge decision in the history of Sony and the PS Store. Otherwise you can only return games there if you have not yet downloaded them. With this decision at Cyberpunk 2077, you could have taken an important step for the future of the PS Store.

This is how the share price works: This message also causes changes to be made on the stock exchange. The price of CD Projekt RED fell by 19.15%. In the meantime (as of December 18 - 9:28 a.m.) it is -17.49% according to Business Insider (via ).

What does this mean for buyers? Statement from CD Projekt RED

What the developers say: On the Polish website there is a statement from CD Projekt RED, the developers of Cyberpunk 2077.

They talk about Sony's decision and let it shine through that Sony made the decision not surprisingly for the developers.

"This decision follows our discussions with Sony Interactive Entertainment regarding refunds for players who purchased Cyberpunk 2077 through the PS Store and would like a refund now." 

For buyers: All copies of the game that were previously purchased digitally in the PS Store can still be used by buyers. This was confirmed by CD Projekt RED in the statement.

In addition, gamers can still purchase the physical versions of PS4 in online and retail stores.

What about updates? Those who keep playing will continue to receive updates. “All purchased digital and physical copies of the game will of course continue to receive support and updates in order to further improve the gaming experience,” says CD Projekt RED (via Twitter ).

How to get your money back: For this special case Sony has built a page for the refund. You go to the website for the reimbursement of Cyberpunk 2077 and log in there with the data for your PS Store account with which you also purchased the game.

Under the declaration you will find the link that will lead you to the reimbursement form.

As you can see from the official report, this can take a bit of time. How long it will take until Sony can verify your purchase and get your money back is currently not clear.
