Cyberpunk 2077 is still currently unavailable for PlayStation consoles, and there is no update as to when it may return. Adam Kicinski, joint CEO of CD Projekt Red, has addressed the issue as part of a shareholder meeting on Tuesday.
Reported (and translated) by VGC, Kicinski said this decision strictly comes down to Sony. Kicinski also said CD Projekt Red remains in communication with Sony and that performance and stability of the PS4 edition of Cyberpunk 2077 has seen improvement through patches. However, it’s still unknown when the game might come back to the PlayStation Store.
“Unfortunately, I have no new information in this regard,” he said. “We are still in discussions and with every patch the game gets better and there is a visible progress, but as we said the decision is an exclusive decision of Sony, so we are waiting for the information about the fact that they took the decision to bring back this game. Until then I am not able to tell you anything more.”
Michal Nowakowski, CD Projekt Red’s business boss, believes Sony is coming closer to a decision. “We do believe we’re closer than further, but of course the final call is theirs, so let’s wait and see,” he said.
Cyberpunk 2077 was removed from the PlayStation Store back in December of 2020 when the game released major issues. Refunds were given across a number of retailers, including CDPR giving refunds. The company said about 30,000 people took advantage of the refund program.
Despite the removal, Cyberpunk 2077 has sold over 13 million copies across all platforms within its first 21 days. CD Projekt Red management said it will not abandon the game and will continue to support it with patches and updates to improve the experience.
Since Cyberpunk 2077 struggled post-launch, the devs adjusted their plans for multiplayer, and it’s unclear if it will be standalone or ever release.
