It’s been over three months since Sony’s decision to pull Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store following the game’s poor outing on consoles. The unprecedented move marred the highly-anticipated game’s release with much controversy, but CD Projekt Red believes it has now addressed many of the issues plaguing the game on the PS4 and PS5 and hopes to make a return to Sony’s digital storefront soon.
That’s according to SVP of business development Michał Nowakowski. “We have published 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,” the CDPR exec told investors in a recent call (via Kotaku). “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.”
The comments, unfortunately, don’t give us a definite timeline for when PlayStation gamers will be able to purchase the game again digitally. Still, it does paint an optimistic picture for the game’s return.
During the same investor call, the studio also reaffirmed its intention to release next-gen upgrades for both Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3 before the end of the year. That also falls in line with the roadmap that accompanied CDPR CEO Marcin Iwinski’s apology for the game’s disastrous release from back in January.
CD Projekt Red also released the second major patch for the game, Patch 1.2, yesterday.
