Cyberpunk 2077 Refunds: Owners Are Getting Their Money Back And Able To Keep The Game

Cyberpunk 2077's rocky launch was not meant with kind words from the community, so much so that CD Projekt Red agreed to refund copies of the game.

Players had been looking forward to this game for nearly 10 years and thanks to a rushed release, their expectations fell short of the mark.

After three delays, CD Projekt Red ultimately couldn't push the date back any further and so opted for the December 2020 release.

In hindsight, they would have been wise to delay again to meet the expectations of fans.

Luckily for them, they've been given a full refund and even been given a small bonus!

Players are able to get their money back and keep the game.

Cyberpunk 2077 Owners Receiving Refunds Without Returning The Game

Owners of the futuristic action role-playing video game are starting to get their refunds at last.

Interestingly, they've also reported that they've not had to return the game.

Several users told Vice that they have now received a refund through PayPal, but haven't had to send back physical copies or had their digital copy removed from their console.

It's important to note, the majority of the issues are based on the old-generation of consoles - PS4 and Xbox One.

Could this be a tactical ploy from CD Projekt Red? There has been talking about Microtransactions and DLC that could win over players again in the near future.

It's also important to remember that these games are playable via backwards compatibility on PS5 and Xbox Series X.

Xbox Series X players will also get a free next-gen upgrade when that arrives.

While we're still waiting for the 1.1 Cyberpunk patch that is supposed to overhaul the game and improve its faults massively, it's still not here.

Touted to arrive in January 2021, CD Projekt Red is leaving things a bit late to produce a patch that could transform the old-generation console experience.
