Things are getting much worse for CD Projekt and their massive blunder of a game as Cyberpunk 2077 has officially been pulled from the PlayStation Store with Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) offering full refunds and a scathing response to the launch of the game:
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.
Earlier this week, we covered news of a stakeholders call between CD Projekt and their partners where CDP stated that they will be assisting those who bought the game and feel duped with full refunds. However, ever since the launch, players have faced one hurdle after another leading to Sony flat out denying refunds. As news began to circulate that Sony was less than helpful on this front, SIE had to make a swift decision that has led to the complete removal of Cyberpunk 2077 from its online store. Yes, that means that you can’t purchase the game for PS4 or PS5 any longer. Though, if you have already purchased it, you can get your full refund. Smart move, Sony.
Cyberpunk 2077 is officially a Microsoft exclusive…
No word on whether or not Microsoft or Valve will be following Sony’s decision, but we expect that Microsoft has already found themselves in a similar situation as Sony. And while PC players are enjoying the game a bit more than their console counterparts, many feel misled with how much content and features have been axed from the game.
Ouch. All we know is, we have never seen a game flop this hard before and resulted in being pulled from a console platform for being handled so poorly. It must really suck to be CD Projekt Red right about now…
