CDPR on getting Cyberpunk 2077 back at PSN Store: ” There are metrics Sony needs them us to hit. We cannot go into the details of where we are with that. But there is a process. We’re in the middle of [it]…conversations happening…the decision will be announced when it’s ready to be announced”

Functional would be a cool metric to hit

You weren't satisfied by them spending 6 months on a patch that dropped quality settings and LOD distance to pick up a couple FPS? They actually thought adding pop in is a form of optimization. The game is now worse on PS5 than it was in the first couple weeks lol.

ID: h052g4u

is it? I played at launch on my PS5, it was a pretty bad experience then.

This whole thing has been such a massive debacle. I got my refund and have long given up on this game doing anything, it'll die like Anthem did, but now it's just frustrating to follow. Especially the really over the top fandom it's cultivated

Speak for yourself I’m satisfied with panam sitting 35 feet in the air and breaking my missions and I absolutely love being most of the way through something and having it crash right before I’m able to save it. /s

ID: h04qbkl

Almost 6 months post-release and still crashes regularly. Embarrassing

"When it's ready" lol

ID: h04rw2s

"When it's ready" post-launch sounds like an Onion article.

ID: h04ymwg

Yeah and maybe it’s me, but I’m picking up some snark from the quote, so it’s especially out of touch if I perceived correctly

ID: h04ilbs

Better than a deadline they miss

I’ll play it if it ever comes to ps plus.

ID: h057aai

i doubt a trainwreck of this magnitude will ever get the chance of occupying a free-game-slot of the ps+ lineup. i also hope sony is smarter than bringing attention to and/or remind people of what a shitshow this was.

ID: h05k1lq

Well, they did add Evolve to the monthly PS Plus lineup before. Years after it had already died. lol

Obviously Evolve wasn't as broken as 2077 is now. But being on PS Plus isn't always an indication of good quality

ID: h05p82m

I don’t think you’ve seen what terrible games have been included in Ps Plus over the years.

ID: h04ob0e

That's the only way.

ID: h053qvc

So they didn't fix it yet? Ok.

ID: h071aus

Doesn't even sound close. I'll probably ever end up playing that game at this point. It'll be outdated by the time it becomes playable.

ID: h06kxw4

This level of fuckup is gonna take years to fix

6 : Anonymous2021/05/31 20:46 ID: h04ccda

I don't think anyone cares anymore at this point...

ID: h04cpm2

Big F for those who pre-ordered the collector's edition lol

ID: h04fzis

Imagine buying the Xbox one X with the game stickers. Yikes.

ID: h04igzy

In the UK the collectors edition is now being sold for £100 (was £250 to pre order). Usually these things sell out at launch and only increase in value, Cyberpunk’s CE has more than halved in value.

ID: h04j3ic

Big F to anybody who pre-ordered thinking a product was going to be completed on good faith from the developer of The fucking Witcher 3 (and 2). You know after one yellow announcement twitter letter after the other.

I was one of them. But hey! I had a unique-ish game to play regardless if I was constantly pressing ESC to tweak my graphics options for better performance. At least it wasn't Warcraft III: Reforged.

ID: h04egfy

I’m still willing to give it a shot if it’s in a workable state by the time the PS5 version is ready. If it’s still a giant piece of shit by then, then I’m assuming the game itself is just bad and not worth it.

I’m not a huge open world guy. But this seems like a fun concept, so I’m hoping Cyberpunk gets the No Mans Sky treatment.

ID: h04gruy

My plan is wait for PS5 version and get it when it’s around 30$. There really is no rush at this point, we’re only going to get new and better games from here on out. I’m still interested in playing it but there’s no more hype

7 : Anonymous2021/05/31 21:06 ID: h04em4i

This was my most anticipated game, probably ever. Bought it, returned it, was gonna wait for the ps5 official version, but now I don’t really care anymore. They fucked up too much. Too many other good games

ID: h05l595

Too many new good games... specially on PS5

8 : Anonymous2021/06/01 05:07 ID: h05trtn

I find it fucken hilarious that over 6 months after "release" the game is still not allowed back on the PSN store lmao

CDPR absolutely deserves this.

This will lead to a better next game. Whatever that next game is their making. Especially hurtful to them since reports are that the game sold 4% and then 1% of the launch month sales this year combined.

Valhalla was 35%. To put that into perspective how badly they fucked up long term with Cyberpunk sales

9 : Anonymous2021/06/01 02:41 ID: h05g0iy

Yeah...they are dropping last-gen support and will issue refunds to those that want them. IMHO, if this is not their route then it should be.

10 : Anonymous2021/05/31 20:49 ID: h04coy5

Maybe instead of spending all that money on marketing they could’ve used some of it to make a functional game.

ID: h04t99k

Worth it for Keanu's E3 appearance tho

ID: h04ymk1

It was a more innocent time for all of us. Lol.

11 : Anonymous2021/06/01 12:33 ID: h06pwll

Refunded cp2077 then bought ghost of tsushima and I made the best decision ever.

12 : Anonymous2021/05/31 23:02 ID: h04rndb

If people really wanted to play this game they would have played it by now. I don’t think anyone cares anymore.

ID: h056jl0

I’m willing to bet there’s a decent amount of people who are waiting to play it on a PS5 once it’s fixed like myself. Plus they need to make it playable and fix it’s problems to work towards becoming everyone’s favorite game studio again

ID: h06isgq


This isnt just bugs btw.

Even bug free this game is a joke

ID: h05c4qu

I was one of those. After the game crashed 40 times on ps5 and deleted my save files mid way I stopped and said I'll wait to come back once it's finishe...

Today I honestly couldn't care less to come back to this game. They can drop a dlc for all I care I don't care about this game anymore. I have way to many more fun games to play now.

ID: h062sqn

Digital PS5 gang rise up. I know the game is a mess, but I still want to play damn it.

13 : Anonymous2021/05/31 21:34 ID: h04hugq

Gawd damn. Sony literally made an example out of the industry's darling. And man their profits tanked hard after the initiative release

14 : Anonymous2021/05/31 23:08 ID: h04sam6

Majority of us don’t give a shit anymore.

15 : Anonymous2021/05/31 23:11 ID: h04smt3

Meanwhile game is still in Open Beta.

ID: h05kx0x

Paid Beta*

16 : Anonymous2021/05/31 21:21 ID: h04gefi

CDPR only has themselves to blame for this. Like, it sucks for them. They aren't getting potential revenue from the PS store, but it honestly wasn't playable on the base consoles (Xbox or PS4). That is all on them.

17 : Anonymous2021/05/31 22:57 ID: h04r48t

Bad controller and interface settings and the game drenched in bugs.

Whatever the metrics are, I hope Sony makes them fix their game before it goes back to the store...

18 : Anonymous2021/05/31 20:45 ID: h04c7gm

just throw it in the trash

19 : Anonymous2021/05/31 23:16 ID: h04t766

Pretty sure one of the metrics is "when people stop asking for refunds all the time" lol

20 : Anonymous2021/05/31 22:00 ID: h04kur9

I super like that Sony pulled it from the store. I imagine there was pressure to keep it, it being such a high-profile project and all, but I respect and appreciate the message it sends (even though most people can still get their hands on the game).

EDIT (6/1/21): Yeah, I'm aware Sony was mostly dodging the refund hassle... but they still didn't have to do that. CDPR expected Sony to back their play, to support them in cleaning up their mess, and Sony didn't. The methods may not be noble, but CDPR still lost that outlet. That wouldn't have happened if they choose to offer refunds--which wouldn't have happened if they didn't botch their launch.

My point still stands: CDPR botched this, and Sony keeping them off the store was a major consequence--I'm all for that.

ID: h04tton

I think it was the right call, but I suspect that the main reason Sony pulled it was because of the statement CDPR put out, saying they would honor refunds on the game. IIRC they never cleared that with Sony, and refunds don't go through CDPR they go through the storefront. So Sony was basically left on the hook for a ton of refund requests that customers were told would be honored. Sony's decision to pull the game came soon after that, and I always had the impression that it was intended to punish CDPR for making a promise and expecting Sony to keep it.

That, plus once people got word that refunds were being honored en masse, there probably would have been a lot of people buying the game with the intention of refunding it, just to try it out, or beat it in a weekend, etc. Sony probably didn't want to deal with all that hassle.

ID: h06wj9p

They pulled it due to the refund issue. Hell, they have Life of Black Tiger on the PS store so it's not like they're trying to protect gamers from buggy or low-quality games.
