Cyberpunk 2077 back on the PSN menu, but buyers beware!

After being pulled from the PlayStation Store a half year ago, Cyberpunk 2077 officially re-hits the digital shelves. After some much-needed tinkering with it, CD Projekt RED’s massive first-person shooter has been green-lit for re-launch. But just to make sure that Sony and CD Projekt RED won’t get tons of hate mail again, the devs have acknowledged that the base PS4 version still isn’t perfect.

I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of the epic failure that was the console version of Cyberpunk 2077. After years of teasing and presenting finger-licking smooth footage, neither the regular PS4 nor the Xbox One seemed able to hack it. The game looked like a total train wreck. Graphics were beyond sub-par and it contained more bugs than a square foot of soil. Since Sony is all about quality, they decided to pull the game altogether until shit got fixed. That time is now. Sort of.

As of today, Cyberpunk 2077 is once more available in the PlayStation Store. But before you go and spend your coins, the marketing team behind the game does have something to say. On Twitter, the dev team chooses its words carefully by stating that it’s available for PS4 Pro and PS5. PS4 Pro, not the base PlayStation 4 or the Slim. In fact, they’re straight-up owning up that the experience might still not be great on the OG PlayStation 4 consoles.

You see? All is well that ends well. Although I expect this SNAFU to haunt CD Projekt RED for years to come. It might suck for the Polish studio – who’s been apologizing ever since for their fuck-ups – but other studios have seemed to learn from it. Take Ubisoft, for example. The French publisher – also heckled a plethora of times for not delivering what they’ve presented before launch – has now promised not to make the same mistake with Far Cry 6.
