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.
