Due to its launch, Cyberpunk 2077 has been delisted since December 2020. However, CD Projekt Red, the developers of Cyberpunk 2077, would have you believe that the game would be coming to the PlayStation Store soon. CD Projekt Red may want to give the impression they're in the process of returning, but Sony would have none of it.
The PlayStation boss told Axios as much in an interview. In this interview, Jim Ryan was firm about Cyberpunk 2077 and its status as delisted in the PlayStation store. The RPG is still unavailable on Sony's digital store six months after its highly-anticipated release. Now we know why.
PlayStation won't bring Cyberpunk 2077 back for a while
PlayStation didn't want to sell something with the knowledge it may be broken.
Jim Ryan explained:
"This was a tough decision for us to make, but ultimately, we had to act in the interests of the PlayStation Community, and not knowingly sell a game that might result in a bad experience for them."
According to the outlet, PlayStation did not offer any details about what CD Projekt RED needs to do to get Cyberpunk 2077 back on the PS Store. On 25th May 2021, the Polish developer revealed it was in discussions with Sony about bringing the game back into its storefront. However, they put on a different hopefulness than Jim Ryan gave.
CEO Adam Kiciński gave a hopeful future:
"We cannot go into the details of where we are with that. But there is a process. We're in the middle of [it]...conversations happening...the decision will be announced when it's ready to be announced… there are metrics that Sony needs (CDPR) to hit..."
We have been waiting for the 1.3 update for two months now. I have gathered links to CD Projekt Red controversies throughout this article to demonstrate how poorly things are going.

I am glad that Sony is making CD Projekt Red answerable, regardless of what forms of action they are taking.
