Update (Fri 18th Dec, 2020 11:30 GMT): CD Projekt Red has told Reuters that it hasn't been talking to Microsoft about removing Cyberpunk 2077 from the Xbox Store, so it looks like it'll remain for now.
Original story (Fri 18th Dec, 2020 04:15 GMT): It seems the ongoing issues with Cyberpunk 2077 have now reached an absolute breaking point - with Xbox's old pal PlayStation removing CD Projekt Red's latest release from its digital store.
In an official statement, Sony Interactive Entertainment said it strived to ensure a "high level of customer satisfaction" and would therefore begin to offer full refunds to everyone who purchased CP2077 on the PlayStation Store. It will also remove the game from its digital platform until further notice. Below is the full statement:
"SIE strives to ensure a high level of customer satisfaction, therefore we will begin to offer a full refund for all gamers who have purchased Cyberpunk 2077 via PlayStation Store. SIE will also be removing Cyberpunk 2077 from PlayStation Store until further notice."
"Once we have confirmed that you purchased Cyberpunk 2077 via PlayStation Store, we will begin processing your refund. Please note that completion of the refund may vary based on your payment method and financial institution."
Earlier this week, CDPR apologised for the performance of the game and began offering refunds, after player reports of glitches, bugs and crashes. It also said it was sorry for not showing the game running on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 prior to launch. These last-gen versions of the game are seemingly struggling the most, even after the recent hotfixes.
While there's no official word just yet, there has been some conversation online about Microsoft potentially following in Sony's footsteps and removing Cyberpunk 2077 from its own digital store.
