Cyberpunk 2077 was re-listed on the PlayStation Store on Monday June 21st, almost six months after its console version was criticized for being very buggy. CD Projekt Red, its developer, has released several updates, fixes and fixes to improve the game’s performance. Regardless, both the CDPR team and Sony re-introduced Cyberpunk 2077, warning users to play it on PS4 Pro or PS5 consoles, but not PS4. While Sony said it recommends more powerful consoles for a “better experience,” CDPR bluntly stated that “performance issues” on the PS4 version have yet to be resolved.
Sony sent out tweet welcome the return of Cyberpunk 2077 to its shelves around the world, while delivering a clear warning that the game is only compatible with PlayStation 4 Pro and PlayStation 5 (review). CDPR tweeted same information, but more clearly indicated in the thread, that PS4 users will continue to experience “performance issues” in the game. The developer said the team will continue to work on improving the stability of the game across all platforms.
The open-world RPG, characterized by a dystopian theme, was delayed several times before it finally came out last December. While its visuals, storyline, and game mechanics were lovingly written, users ridiculed its PS4 version (review) for glitching to an unplayable level. Sony pulled Cyberpunk 2077 out of the PlayStation store this month and gave the money back, while CDPR pledged to make up for the damage through major updates across platforms. The latest patch to improve the stability of the game on PC, consoles and Stadia was released last week.
Despite the seemingly random appearance, Cyberpunk 2077 is reportedly one of the most expensive games ever made, selling 13 million copies – adjusted for money back – in a matter of days.
