The Cyberpunk 2077 debacle continues as Sony has now removed the game from its storefront until further notice, as well as offer refunds to everyone who has brought the game on their digital store.
The message on the page reads:
“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.”
Honestly, it’s such a shame to see this happening, especially as once CDPR was regarded as one of the most consumer friendly developers. However, by hiding console previews on purpose and supporting bad development habits that burned out their devs, they don’t necessarily have the best image at the moment.
This isn’t only affecting their image, as CDPR shares have taken a plunge as well, costing the founders a billion dollars. Now, we are sure they will fix the game eventually, but it definitely shouldn’t have been released in this state, or even passed Sony or Microsoft’s certification.
