Cyberpunk 2077 has been one of the widely popular games in the recent past, madly waited for, by the fans. However, the game has seen many negative feedbacks just after its launch. It is particularly true for consoles where the game has been buggy to the extent that it has ranged from being unplayable to performing okay. Gamers, especially on old generation consoles have been affected very badly, with players on PS4, Xbox One, and even the One S console facing multiple issues. After noticing this, Sony has taken the matter into its own hands and announced that players on PS4 and PS5 who have already purchased the game can now request a payback for the game if they wish. Actually, the situation has gotten so poor that Sony Interactive Entertainment has even announced that it is taking down the Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store until further notice.

“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,” Sony mentioned in a blog post.

“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,” Sony further added.

CD Projekt Red has made a promise to launch patches to make better the performance of Cyberpunk 2077. It has already launched one post-launch update and promised to release another one prior to the end of this week. However, the developer said that it also aims to release 2 more significant patches which will be rolled out in January and February respectively. “Together these should fix the most prominent problems gamers are facing on last-gen consoles,” the company said.
