Earlier today in a regulatory announcement from CD Projekt, it was announced that their major 2021 release, Cyberpunk 2077, will return to the PlayStation after a six-month-long hiatus. A hiatus tied to poor console performance on PS4 and Xbox One.
The official translated release reads as follows:
In relation to Current Report no. 66/2020 of 18 December 2020, the Management Board of CD PROJEKT S.A. with a registered office in Warsaw hereby publicly discloses the decision by Sony Interactive Entertainment to reinstate the availability of the digital edition of Cyberpunk 2077 on PlayStation Store, effective on 21 June 2021.
It’s important to note that this is a direct translation from the original release that was released in Polish. This may introduce some some minor discrepancies between the two versions.
However, the main content that discusses the return of Cyberpunk 2077 to the PlayStation Store is absolute. The return in six days on June 21 comes in almost exactly six months since it was pulled from the store on Dec. 17, 2020 (Dec. 18 in Poland).
And just to be clear, there’s no indication that this will have any kind of impact on the release of the Xbox Series X|S or PS5 versions of Cyberpunk 2077. They both still appear to be set for a release window of the nebulous second half of 2021.
