All the way back on 18th December – which feels like a lifetime ago now – Sony made the unprecedented decision to remove Cyberpunk 2077 from sale on the PlayStation Store. It’s now been a full month since that decision was made, and it remains impossible to purchase the CD Projekt RED developed open world RPG from the Japanese giant’s digital storefront.
As part of an FAQ outlining its “commitment” to players moving forwards, the studio said that it’s “working on fixes and updates” and aims to “bring Cyberpunk 2077 back to [the] PS Store as soon as possible”. A new patch is due imminently, so it’ll be interesting to see whether it solves the major issues or not.
If you’d have told us this time last year that Sony would remove the game from the PS Store for an entire month, we’d never have believed you. It’s clear that the game was not ready for primetime, however: our reviewer, Robert Ramsey, poured almost a hundred hours into the title, but he still hasn’t been able to finish it due to a game-breaking bug.
