Cyberpunk 2077 refunds policy on Xbox reverts to normal in July

Cyberpunk 2077

Is Cyberpunk 2077 finally turning the corner after its much maligned, bug-laden, unfinished release state? That still remains to be seen, but another sign that CDPR’s sci-fi, action RPG may be (finally) heading in the right direction is the fact that the game has been reinstated to the PS Store after being pulled outright back in December and now, in early July, Xbox will be reverting its expanded refund policy surrounding the game as well.

Xbox support put up a notice on Tuesday regarding the updated terms surrounding the Cyberpunk 2077 refunds policy, which stated, “The team at CD Projekt Red continues to work hard to improve the experience of Cyberpunk 2077 for Xbox players and has made a number of updates.

“Given these updates, Microsoft will be returning to our standard digital game refund policy for Cyberpunk 2077 on July 6 for both new and existing purchases.”

Microsoft’s standard policy regarding refunds in the past has been, “All sales of Digital Game Products are considered final, but we understand there may be extenuating circumstances.” In addition, the refund policy is usually applicable for 14 days after purchase for physical copies and even under those parameters, “submitting a request does not guarantee a refund.” Clearly, an exception had to be made in relation to Cyberpunk 2077 refunds, so if you find your Cyberpunk 2077 experience still unplayable on the Xbox, it might be prudent to consider refunding the game before July 6th.

Playstation users (and even Xbox One users), should keep in mind that even though Cyberpunk 2077 was reinstated to the PS Store, Sony still serves a warning on the product listing which states purchasing the game for base PS4 consoles is “not recommended.” The full warning reads: “Users continue to experience performance issues with this game. Purchase for use on PS4 systems is not recommended. For the best Cyberpunk experience on PlayStation, play on PS4 Pro and PS5 systems.”

Do you think the Cyberpunk 2077 refunds policy on Xbox being changed is proof the game is turning the corner or is the news too little, too late in your mind? Let us know in the comments.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
