A huge move, but Sony
has removed Cyberpunk 2077
from its online store, but even more poignant, offering discounts
to anyone who purchased the game digitally, based off the series of problems it, developer CD Projekt RED
and punters have had with the game on PS4
and Xbox One, or "last-gen", consoles since release.
CDPR has aligned itself with Microsoft
in the lead up to the hotly anticipated game's launch, so there's no telling if the Xbox
version of the game in a digital sense will offer the same refund option until it's last-gen ready, but this move from Sony is actually fairly significant.
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.
It's been an uphill battle for the most talked about game of at least this year, however, it definitely has legs as we've played it on high-end PC and found only a handful of problems. This doesn't help the consolers out there, but given the power of next-gen when a new patch comes it'll likely bring it in line with a moderate PC build. For all the last-geners though... we can't be sure what your future holds.
