Cyberpunk 2077 is back on PlayStation Store soon. And it’s official! Several months after the many controversies, CD Projekt Red finally seems to have found a solution with Sony Interactive Entertainment.
Cyberpunk 2077 returns to PlayStation Store in June
On December 18, 2020, just eight days after its release, CD Projekt Red and its Cyberpunk 2077 game are in turmoil. After millions of dollars of investment in game development (but above all in communication), employees pushed to their limits and many (broken) promises, the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Cyberpunk 2077 are going to be the tastes of too much.
Quite simply unplayable versions which accumulate bugs, chain crashes, crash consoles… Versions which promised to be perfectly playable according to CD Projekt, three weeks before the game’s release. A huge controversy broke out to the point where Sony decided to removing the game from its online store making it unavailable for purchase on PS4 (and in its backward compatible version on PS5).

Seven months and two days after this deletion, Cyberpunk 2077 will return to the Store for the PS4 and PS5. Sony Interactive Entertainment announced that the game will be available again from June 21.
SIE can confirm that Cyberpunk 2077 will be re-registered on PlayStation Store starting June 21, 2021. Users will continue to experience performance issues with the PS4 edition as CD Projekt Red continues to improve stability across all platforms. SIE recommends playing the title on PS4 Pro or PS5 for the best experience.
Sony still advises (at our colleagues from Eurogamer) to play the game on a PS4 Pro or a PS5. Despite the many big patches put online by CD Projekt, Cyberpunk 2077 remains a very unstable game and far from being finalized (even if it is much better than in December).
A next-gen version of the title is still scheduled for release this year and will be free for players owning the game on PS4 and Xbox One. We hope that this version will be up to the task.
