Cyberpunk 2077 is returning to the PlayStation Store for those unaware. Since being delisted six months ago, CD Projekt Red has been working toward this. Thus, it is strange they did not make more of a fuss over it.
It may be because Sony will not allow CD Projekt Red to misinform anyone about the actual status of Cyberpunk 2077. There is nothing perfect about this game; it merely meets the standards of the PlayStation Store to return to it. CD Projekt Red finally got Cyberpunk 2077 to reach the bare minimum requirements to be on PlayStation's digital storefront.
Is Cyberpunk on the PlayStation Store? Not yet, but in a week.
According to a statement made to CD Projekt Red shareholders, the PlayStation Store will soon see the return of Cyberpunk 2077. However, without fanfare and with a somber tone, it seems. At first glance, it seems strange until you see that Sony warned gamers not to assume the game would run smoothly.
The efforts of CD Projekt Red to get Cyberpunk 2077 back onto the PlayStation store have been documented endlessly. The company even blamed Sony for the decline in profits. Finally, after many promises, the game will return on June 21st, 2021.
IGN has received a statement from Sony Interactive Entertainment that warns players that relisting the game will not fix problems associated with the base PlayStation 4 consoles.
The official statement from PlayStation reads:
"SIE can confirm that Cyberpunk 2077 will be relisted on PlayStation Store starting June 21st, 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."
Sony has a critical role in cautioning fans not to assume that a game will work simply because it is back. Instead, they told fans that they would have a better time playing on the PlayStation 4 Pro or PS5. So it's hard to believe that we need to be warned about our games not working correctly.
It should just be playable at launch, but maybe in a perfect world.
