PlayStation has announced on Twitter that CD Projekt Red’s much-maligned Cyberpunk 2077 has returned to the PlayStation store. Base PS4 users should proceed cautiously, however, as “fixes and updates [will] be released throughout the year” for the game. Translation: still a buggy mess. Playing on a PS4 Pro or PS5 continues to be the way to go for PlayStation players.
The game’s official Twitter account also stated that players “may continue to experience some performance issues with the PS4 edition while we continue to improve stability across all platforms.” A bright side is that a free upgrade to the PS5 version is expected later this year for those who have been playing on PS4 in spite of the game’s many glitches and problems.
Cyberpunk 2077 was taken down from the PS store in December shortly after the game’s release due to its lackluster performance and Sony even offered refunds to customers. Earlier this month videos leaked online from the game’s development showcasing several of the game’s glitches.
Time will tell just how much of a stain Cyberpunk 2077 ends up being on CD Projekt Red’s reputation, and if Cyberpunk 2077 can become the game that so many fans were excited and hoping for.
