Six months ago, Sony took the unprecedented action of removing Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation store following countless user complaints about the PS4 version of the game. But on Monday, June 21, the game will be returning to the PlayStation Store.
However, Sony is already warning players not to expect much from the PS4 version of the game. In a statement, Sony says, “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.”
Why is the game returning if it is still a buggy experience? The short answer is money. Developer CD Projekt Red had disappointing Q1 profits (especially after all those refunds demanded by players) and is hoping returning the game to the PlayStation Store will shore up their profits.
However, complaints about the game’s numerous glitches, bugs, and other issues plagued what was meant to be a major launch for this title. Only time will tell if that has scared would-be players away or if the game’s return to the PlayStation Store will provide the profits that CD Projekt Red is hoping for.
