Cyberpunk 2077 Returns To The PlayStation Store After Patch 1.23

Cyberpunk 2077 returns to the PlayStation Store - along with a small recommendation from Sony.

It seems like the dark cloud hanging over CD Projekt’s Cyberpunk 2077 is beginning to dissipate a little – with the game returning to the PlayStation Store nearly a year after it was pulled. The removal of the game from the Store came as a shock to the community as it was one of the rare moments where a AAA game had been pulled from the Store like that.

Cyberpunk 2077’s launch, by this point, has become gaming legend, and for all the wrong reasons. The game did not fare well on last-gen consoles – which is odd, considering the game had been in development when they were still current-gen.

Even though the game still isn’t quite without flaws whatsoever, Cyberpunk 2077 is in a much better state now than it was at launch.

Sony puts Cyberpunk 2077 back up on the PlayStation Store – recommends PS4 Pro or PS5 for the best experience

Although Cyberpunk 2077 is back up on the Store, Sony are consistent with their messaging that the game isn’t quite up to mark on last-gen consoles yet. Thus, recommending its playerbase that they opt to experience the game on the PS4 Pro or the PS5.

The next-gen version of the game is still currently in the works, but the hardware on the PS5 seems to have a far easier time running the game. The issues aren’t as frequent or as game-braking as the ones seen on last-gen consoles.

CD Projekt Red isn’t quite done with the game as the studio has been hard at work – putting out multiple patches and updates. The game’s planned standalone multiplayer expansion has been put on hold – with the studio focusing their efforts on bringing the game’s single-player up to par on all platforms.

Development had to have been a gigantic task – seeing as the game was being developed for several platforms – including Stadia. Although the game’s launch was far less than optimal – CD Projekt Red might just yet pull a No Man’s Sky and  bring Cyberpunk 2077 up to scratch.

I possess the dexterity of a toddler when it comes to fighting games, but the confidence of a hundred Jay-Z's. Absolutely love narrative-driven games - with a particular obsession with indie side scrollers and retrowave scores. Currently playing: Disco Elysium for probably 5th time in the last 6 months.
