Sony Pulls Cyberpunk 2077 From PS Store, Offers Full Refunds

Sony yanks bug riddled game in an unprecedented move.

Sony announced Thursday evening that they will be taking drastic steps in the wake of the wild launch that has engulfed Cyberpunk 2077. In a statement posted to the official PlayStation website the console maker lays it all out, “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.”

Cyberpunk has been marred with controversy ever since it launched on December 10th. The PS4 and Xbox One versions has taken particular heat for not being shown pre-release and shipping in a state that can hardly be compared to it’s PS5 and Series X big brothers, much less its PC counterpart. This move comes hot off the heels of CD Projekt Red saying players could get refunds from Sony directly, then reports of Sony not honoring said refunds. At any rate, we are officially in uncharted waters as fans wait for CD Projekt Red to patch the game and Sony to announce when and how Cyberpunk 2077 will be rolled back out to digital storefronts.

What do you think of Sony pulling Cyberpunk 2077 from it’s store? Is this all one big overblow situation or is Sony right to pull the plug until the game is in better shape? Let us know in the comments below!

  1. I haven’t kept up with this game, but I am glad they pulled it. If the game doesn’t work, you shouldn’t have to pay $60 for a buggy product. At least be honest with consumers and say “hey, this game isn’t 100% yet, so just a heads up! We will patch it soon”. Why do these companies think we are so dumb that we wouldn’t notice? If a gamer notices it’s buggy….obviously the developers knew what they were doing and didn’t care if it was a broken game. They just wanted cash quick…that’s the truth.

    1. Yup, I think they knew exactly the backlash they were getting into and just needed to ship it. In the end I think CDPR will still come out on top (financially) and everyone will mostly just forget this, but we’ll see.
