Sony and Cyberpunk’s maker, CD Projekt Red, have confirmed that the game is no longer available in the PlayStation store. Here is all you need to know about it.
What happened exactly?
While both companies were brief in their statements, we do know the reason behind this decision. CD Projekt Red recently tweeted out that they were trying to ensure a higher level of customer satisfaction to the PlayStation players.
Here is what CD Projekt Red Said:

The reasoning behind this decision is also understandable as the base PS4 was completely unable to keep up. The game’s heavy graphical demands, as well as numerous tiny bugs, weren’t a very enjoyable experience. The PS4 was able to churn a maximum of 30 frames at 1080p and even fell well below that in intense fight scenes. Other times saw the PS4 not completely rendering character profiles in the game and was stuttering throughout gunfights.
Is this the end for PlayStation users?
Far from it! CDPR has ensured that they are working hard to make the game available to people on PS4 as well. In the meantime, they have given people the option to request a refund from the PlayStation Store if they so choose. This means that if you aren’t in the mood for future updates, and want your money back then you can get a full refund if you so choose.
Our advice would be to stick with the game and wait for future updates that will make the game all the easier and pleasing to play! The major patch dates are due in January, February, and March. Our guess is that things will take a turn for the better after the initial patches that they make.
If you happen to already own the game on your PS4, then you can keep playing it without worrying. Also, if you have deleted it, then you can always redownload the game and continue playing it as normal.
