What should have been a great version got into a lot of trouble at developer CD Projekt RED. Cyberpunk 2077 does not work on older platforms, many of the promised features and content are missing, and consumers are asking for a refund en masse. The developer has repeatedly indicated to rectify everything, but it will take time.
In the meantime, it also became possible to get a refund through the PlayStation Store, where Sony took the very drastic step of even removing the game from the Store. Anonymous developer talks about it now sharing and it turns out that Sony was “furious” at the high rate of reimbursement requests.
Sony Japan in particular would have been “particularly outraged” by the situation. This is partly because CD Projekt RED Sony, but also Microsoft, had promised that the poor performance of the game between the gold master and the actual release would be corrected. Something that didn’t happen.
Sony and the developer have now sat around the table and the refund of refunds has resulted. It’s something, but at the studio in Poland it doesn’t look good. For example, there could be an exodus of people in the coming months, and developer morale has never been lower.
Additionally, the first major updates to correct performance will not be released until mid-March and not before, although top players have reported this to CD Projekt RED. Just like us previous message About the omitted content, it also applies here that this has not been officially confirmed and you should take it with a grain of salt.
