After facing arguably the biggest retail delisting yet on PlayStation consoles, Cyberpunk 2077 has returned to the PlayStation Network online store today—though even after months of patches, the game isn’t necessarily getting a red-carpet welcome.

The game’s December 2020 launch was marked largely by bugs and glitches on every single platform, with performance on “base” versions of Xbox One and PlayStation 4 suffering the worst. After seven days of bad press and CD Projekt Red launching a refund program, Sony went one step further by yanking the game entirely from its online shops and informing buyers that they were eligible for a refund if they were dissatisfied with their digital purchase.

At the time, neither Sony nor CDPR offered a road map for exactly when the game might go back for sale on Sony’s digital shops, even though the developer made clear that it would continue patching the game on all platforms. (The game was never delisted on Xbox.) Last week, CDPR confirmed in a regulatory statement that the game would return to PSN this week, and that came to pass on Monday. In conjunction, the game’s digital purchase price dropped $10 to $50 (possibly because the news coincided with Amazon Prime Day, where the game’s digital and disc versions are also discounted).
