After removing Cyberpunk 2077 from the PS Store back in December “until further notice,” due to myriad complaints regarding the game’s performance, particularly on last-gen consoles, Sony has announced they will finally reinstate the CD Projekt Red developed, sci-fi, action RPG game on June 21st. The announcement was confirmed in a regulatory announcement from CD Projekt Red. Cyberpunk 2077‘s reinstatement to the PS Store comes after a number of hotfixes/updates made to the game more than 180 days after it was initially pulled, the latest being Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.2, which added a substantial amount of new content to the game, including a romance path involving popular female protagonist Panam Palmer.
“SIE can confirm that Cyberpunk 2077 will be re-listed on PlayStation Store starting June 21, 2021,” a Sony spokesperson informed Polygon in an e-mail. “Users will continue to experience performance issues with the PS4 edition while CD Projekt Red continues to improve stability across all platforms. SIE recommends playing the title on PS4 Pro or PS5 for the best experience.”
Earlier in the week, Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan disclosed his thoughts for the first time on the removal of Cyberpunk 2077 from the PS Store, saying, “This was a tough decision for us to make, but ultimately, we had to act in the interests of the PlayStation Community, and not knowingly sell a game that might result in a bad experience for them.” (Source: Axios.)
