Cyberpunk 2077 Gets Booted From The PlayStation Store

It has been a rough week for Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red. Fans of the game have also had a less fun week than they expected to, as they attempted to play the game despite its many glitches and bugs. Bad news keeps rolling in for the Witcher 3 developer, and fans' patience is running thin. The bad blood brewing between CD Projekt Red and the players trying to play a faulty game has led Sony to pull Cyberpunk 2077 from its online store and issue refunds for anyone wanting to get their money back for the nearly unplayable game.

Sony released a statement on its website to explain: "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." The statement goes on to reveal that "SIE will also be removing Cyberpunk 2077 from PlayStation Store until further notice."

While CD Projekt Red previously promised refunds would be offered to unsatisfied customers, the company wasn't entirely transparent about the fact that getting those refunds cleared was mostly outside of its control. Issuing refunds for a game that broke records with preorders and release day purchases is obviously a complicated task, but Sony has streamlined the process by setting up a special page to request a refund while also preventing prospective players from purchasing the game.

Sony's decision to pull Cyberpunk 2077 is somewhat unsurprising, considering the massive amounts of refunds currently being requested by unhappy customers. However, it's also rare to remove a game, and especially a AAA game like Cyberpunk 2077, from the PlayStation Store. Considering the hype surrounding the game's release and the massive amount of news generated by that release, this latest development will only further complicate players' feelings about the game they waited so long for.

If you'd like to file for your own PlayStation Store refund, simply go to PlayStation's website, log in with your PSN information, and request a refund. Sony has made the process simple, but there's no doubt that fans are displeased with this whole issue, especially considering the eight-year wait for the game to be developed and released.

Things keep looking worse for CD Projekt Red, and it seems that all news isn't good news in this case. As of now, there's no word on when, or if, Cyberpunk 2077 will return to PlayStation's online marketplace.
