The upsetting state and constant complaints from fans about Cyberpunk 2077 had forced Sony to remove the game from the PlayStation store. Regardless of all the hype around the game, its launch was a stellar disappointment. CD Projekt RED seemed to have published an unfinished game with way too many bugs and glitches.

Not just the PlayStation Store, but various other online and offline platforms also removed Cyberpunk 2077 from their shelves. Gamestop took its disappointment to the point it called the game “defected“. However, this did not inhibit CDPR from working on its game and improving it to a stable state.

Over the course of the last month, CDPR has released various fixes and patches to improve the state of its game. While many of these have solved various problems, the game is still a long way from reaching stability. This leaves the question of the estimated time PlayStation players will have to wait for the game to be digitally available to them.

CDPR is working with Sony to bring Cyberpunk 2077 back to the store

The developers have yet not announced a date for when Cyberpunk 2077 will be back to the PlayStation Store. However, they still have a positive message up on the official website assuring PlayStation players waiting for a digital copy of the game.

The message on the website says, “We are working on fixes and updates, and are working with Sony to bring Cyberpunk 2077 back to PlayStation Store as soon as possible.

Although this provides some relief to fans, it still offers nothing concrete.

This would not be the first time a game is trying to bounce back from such a sorry state. Many others such as Star Wars Battlefront II have managed the feat of making it back to the PlayStation Store. However, it will be interesting to see exactly how long before Cyberpunk 2077 meets Sony’s standards once again.

While CDPR managed to get its game certified, there are many steps after that checkpoint too. A certified game doesn’t always mean one free from bugs and glitches. The poor performance of Cyberpunk 2077 was entirely CDPR’s fault, and now it is up to them to fix it.
