It’s been five months since CDPR’s coveted RPG was removed from the PlayStation storefront. However, despite over 500 improvements being made to the game, Sony still hasn’t signalled the game’s return to its digital market. 

At a recent shareholder’s meeting, CD Projekt Red was asked to provide an update on its situation with Sony. In response, CEO Adam Kiciński lamented that PlayStation hasn’t permitted the game’s return to the platform yet:

“Unfortunately, I have no new information in this regard,” he said through a translator. “We are still in discussions and with every patch the game gets better and there is a visible progress, but as we said the decision is an exclusive decision of Sony, so we are waiting for the information about the fact that they took the decision to bring back this game. Until then I am not able to tell you anything more.”

Back in March, CDPR’s SVP of business development, Michał Nowakowski, also stated the following about the situation:

“We do believe we’re closer than further, but of course the final call is theirs, so let’s wait and see,”

Addressing how the Store ban would affect sales, the SVP delved into the factors that would impact the game most:

“As far as Cyberpunk sales for this year are concerned, first of all I believe they will be driven by two major elements that we keep working on. First, patching and updating the game, and this should also result in coming back to the Sony store,”

Hopefully, Sony will review Cyberpunk 2077’s re-entry to the PlayStation Store soon. While the game still has numerous patches ahead of it, its playability has improved since its 2020 launch.
