In a not so surprising move, both Sony and Microsoft are offering full refunds to anyone who’d bought Cyberpunk 2077 on the PS4 or Xbox One. What’s more, Sony is even pulling the game from the PlayStation Store altogether. CD Projekt Red have really screwed up this time.

These bouncers seem a bit…slimy.

You know a game is terrible when the major distributors are offering full refunds for said game. That, unfortunately, is what’s happening with the console versions of Cyberpunk 2077. Both Sony and Microsoft are fully refunding anyone who’d bought the game from the PlayStation Store or the Microsoft Store respectively. That said, only Sony is pulling the game from the PlayStation Store. Make of that what you will.

Cyberpunk 2077 on the Consoles: A Blocky Tale of Blurriness

It’s like an entirely different game, but in the worst possible way.

In its current state, Cyberpunk 2077 should never have made it to the PS4 and Xbox One. Oh, the PC version appears to be just fine, barring a couple of (dozen) bugs. The bugs don’t really break the game for the most part, so it’s mostly just amusing. It’s just for the console versions, CD Projekt Red appear to have had a brain fart, and forgot what made a game playable.

So why would CD Projekt Red release Cyberpunk 2077 for the consoles in such a clearly unfinished state? Maybe to boost the sales numbers on day one? The game did just break records for most number of sale on its first day. The game sold over 8 million copies worldwide when it launched on December 10, 2020. Of that number, 3.28 million of those copies were the console versions. This represents 41% of the preorder sales number.

Now that’s a lot of sales. Aaand it’s gone.

And now, because the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Cyberpunk 2077 are so obviously unfinished, all those sales have been for nothing. To be honest, CD Projekt Red didn’t need to boost sales numbers, if that was what they were going for. The PC version of the game alone outsold World of Warcraft: Shadowlands: the next best-selling game. 4.72 million copies vs. Shadowlands‘ 3.7 million copies. CD Projekt Red really didn’t need to tarnish their reputation just to break some records. They really didn’t.


Sony and Microsoft are offering full refunds for anyone who’d bought Cyberpunk 2077 on the PS4 and Xbox One through their digital stores. It might take them a while, and you might have to jump through a few hoops to get that refund, but it’s happening. CD Projekt Red is going to have to work long and hard to restore the trust they’ve just lost with the player-base over this fiasco.
