Cyberpunk 2077 Reappears then Disappears from the PlayStation Store [UPDATE]

They put it back on the store. For a moment, at least.

Update: Cyberpunk 2077 will return to the PlayStation Store on June 21, CD Projekt Red has confirmed.

Update #2: In a statement issued to IGN, Sony has said that while Cyberpunk 2077 is returning to the PlayStation Store, the company expects people will still likely experience some performance issues on base PlayStation 4 systems, and says the best way to play the game right now is on either a PlayStation 4 Pro or PlayStation 5 (if you can find the latter).

“SIE can confirm that Cyberpunk 2077 will be re-listed on PlayStation Store starting June 21, 2021. Users will continue to experience performance issues with the PS4 edition while CD Projekt Red continues to improve stability across all platforms. SIE recommends playing the title on PS4 Pro or PS5 for the best experience.”

Original story: It looks like Cyberpunk 2077 might be in the process of getting relisted on the PlayStation Store after it was pulled from the service following its glitch-ridden launch back in December. But it’s not quite there yet.

Reports from IGN earlier this morning showed the game being put back on the PlayStation Store as a “just announced” game, which allowed users to wishlist the game and re-download it if they already owned it. However, checking now, the game appears to have been wiped from Sony’s storefront once again. I even own the game digitally and can’t find it on the PlayStation Store.

While the game isn’t back on the store yet, this might mean Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be available again digitally in the near future. For whatever it’s worth, developer CD Projekt Red has put a lot of work into patching the game since December. Hopefully not to the detriment of its workers. But the updates it has put out have been extensive and addressed a lot of technical performance issues. The company has said it plans to make Cyberpunk 2077 a long-tail game that it can sell “for years to come” like it has The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and has shifted around its content release plans to make it happen. So we’ll see if it’s reached a quality threshold Sony’s content with sooner or later.
