Cyberpunk 2077 developer still waiting for Sony's approval to get the game back on PlayStation Store

Cyberpunk 2077 goes gold ahead of it's  November 19 release date

It's been over 5 months since Cyberpunk 2077 was removed from the PlayStation Store owing to its buggy launch, and developer CDPR has no clue when the game will be added back on the storefront. In their recent shareholder meeting, reported by VGC, CDPR was asked about the matter to which joint executive Adam Kiciński said “Unfortunately, I have no new information in this regard. We are still in discussions and with every patch, the game gets better and there is 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,”

Cyberpunk 2077 did not live up to the hype it had created. When the game came out in December 2020, players reported several bugs which made Cyberpunk 2077 'rather unplayable', especially on old-generation consoles. What followed was heavy criticism for CDPR and the removal of Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store. 

CDPR refuses to abandon Cyberpunk 2077

At the moment, CDPR is committed to improving Cyberpunk 2077. Back in April, Adam said in an interview that "I don’t see an option to shelve Cyberpunk 2077." The developer has also revealed a roadmap for future updates and DLCs that will significantly improve the gameplay. CDPR also planned on releasing a standalone multiplayer version of CP2077 but the plan was dropped. Instead of just one game, they will work on bringing multiplayer mode to multiple titles in the future. In spite of everything, CDPR has acknowledged that Cyberpunk 2077's launch was a huge lesson for them
