On June 21st, CD Projekt announced that Cyberpunk 2077 would return to the PlayStation Store. Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red issued a press release confirming the reports, which stated that Sony agreed to reinstate the game.
The publisher for CD Projekt Red would not respond to follow-up questions, including what bug fixes or other updates the new version offers. Sony officially announced that the news but advised PlayStation 4 users to avoid playing the game.
Performance issues for the PS4 edition will persist while CD Projekt Red works to improve overall platform stability. A spokesperson said, "SIE recommends playing the game on PlayStation 4 Pro or PlayStation 5 for the best experience."
Cyberpunk 2077's numerous bugs and poor performance were frequently reported to Sony until removed the game from the store on December 17th, 2020. Also, in late May, the studio's CEO, Adam Kiciński, told investors that progress was being made in stabilising the game. However, according to Kiciński, Sony has to be the one to make the final decision.
Cyberpunk 2077, released in December, did well with strong sales but suffered from significant technical issues. Players reported numerous (and frequently hilarious) bugs on every platform, and the game failed to run correctly on last-generation Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles.
Both Microsoft and Sony offered refunds for the game, and Microsoft additionally marked the Xbox One's digital storefront with a caution label for users. Sony removed the game from the PlayStation Store, deciding to pull it all together.
This may have slowed down CD Projekt's sales on Xbox and PC, and PlayStation because of the absence of the digital version.
