Six months after Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) pulled Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store, PlayStation 4 and PS5 owners will soon be ready to buy the digital version of the RPG once more. As reported by Eurogamer, CD Projekt Red revealed during a regulatory announcement that Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be available on the PlayStation Store as of June 21st.
In reference to Current Report no. with a registered office in Warsaw hereby publicly discloses the choice by Sony Interactive Entertainment to reinstate the supply of the digital edition of Cyberpunk 2077 on PlayStation Store, effective on 21 June 2021,” the announcement reads.
After having been off the PlayStation Store for nearly 6 months now, it’s like Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be available for purchase for PlayStation users digitally once more. Easily one among the foremost highly anticipated releases of the last decade, Cyberpunk 2077 had plenty of expectations to measure up to, yet it had possibly one among the foremost infamously rocky launches within the history of video games.
The game suffered during a major way on last-gen consoles, with performance issues, bugs, and game-breaking glitches plaguing the sport on launch. Perhaps during a bid to make sure internal control, Sony pulled an absolute shocker of a move and pulled the sport from the PlayStation Store on December 17, 2020.
In May, over five months after Sony had delisted the sport, CD Projekt said it had been still awaiting the platform holder’s approval to bring Cyberpunk 2077 back to the PlayStation Store.
CEO Adam Kiciński told shareholders
We are still in discussions and with every patch, the sport gets better and there’s clear progress, but as we said the choice is an exclusive decision of Sony, so we are expecting the knowledge about the very fact that they took the choice to bring back this game.
Asked about an equivalent situation in late March, CD Projekt’s SVP of business development, Michał Nowakowski, also said Cyberpunk 2077’s absence from Sony’s digital storefront was possibly hurting sales across all platforms.
Asked to supply an updated sales forecast for the sport, he didn’t offer a figure but said sales would be heavily impacted by two major factors – the game’s PS5 and Xbox Series X/S release within the last half of the year, and its return to the PlayStation Store.
Update: during a statement to Polygon, Sony confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 will return to the PlayStation Store. It also cautioned users against playing the sport on a base PlayStation 4 until CD Projekt Red fixes some more issues.
SIE can confirm that Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be re-listed on PlayStation Store starting summer solstice, 2021 a Sony spokesperson said in an email. SIE recommends playing the title on PS4 Pro or PS5 for the simplest experience.
