A Week After ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ Patch 1.2, No Signs Of Life On The PlayStation Store

Cyberpunk 2077


While Cyberpunk 2077 sold an incredible amount of copies at launch, it has had a pretty severe problem since about a week after that. Sony removed the game from the PlayStation Store completely, which meant that neither PS4 or PS5 had a digital version of the game for sale. That’s now been going on for well over three months now, and hotfixes and patches, even the massive patch 1.2, released last week, has not changed that.

Sony originally puled Cyberpunk 2077 from its store due to a combination of the game’s poor performance on last-gen consoles especially, but also the flood of refund requests pouring in, directed to them at first by CDPR when Sony did not have a digital refund policy (it had to adopt one just for Cyberpunk).

In the wake of patch 1.2, CDPR expressed confidence that the game would be back on the PlayStation Store soon, something they needed to reassure investors about due to the fact that console sales dropped sharply after this move.

“We have pushed several patches. We have just published a really big one yesterday and we have published several hotfixes. Each and every one of them brings us closer to going back to the PSN store,” SVP of business development Michał Nowakowski said. “However, the final decision, you have to understand, belongs to Sony. We do believe we’re closer than further, but of course, the final call is theirs, so let’s wait and see.”

Cyberpunk 2077


It seemed like Sony would have to wait at least a little while to see what the results of the patch were. Patch 1.1, for instance, introduced a game-breaking bug that had to be hotfixed.

Nothing that severe has happened with patch 1.2, and yet it hasn’t been exactly game-changing either. The largest performance gains have been measured on the PS4 Pro version of the game, which was already the best-running console version before this. The Xbox One X version got some improvements, but last gen consoles, PS4 and Xbox One, received relatively little help and still run quite poorly. The Xbox version in particular is supposed to be the poorest-performing version of the game, though Microsoft never removed Cyberpunk from its store. That was always a drastic step taken by Sony, but Microsoft also had a marketing deal with CDPR for the game.

The Cyberpunk roadmap is now…practically blank. We have been promised free DLC in the first half of the year, so some time in the next three months, and the next-gen version of the game in the second half of the year. “Fixes” will come in between, but unlike patch 1.1 and 1.2 we have no date or even release window for a potential patch 1.3.

The roadmap


No one really seems sure what it will take for Sony to let Cyberpunk back on its store and give it access to 100+ million players in the PlayStation ecosystem once again, but this has to be CDPR’s prime focus going forward above all else, and I imagine there are talks going on behind the scenes. I do have to wonder at one point Sony is just being punitive, as it seems clear the game will never run “well” on base PS4 even as the PS4 Pro/PS5 version is the best performing version on consoles, which is still not for sale. So what’s the bar here? What will it take? That’s a question CDPR has to be asking.

For now, nothing. I’ll keep checking the store daily in the interim.
