Madrid Dec 18 (EFE) .- PlayStation has decided to withdraw from its store “Cyberpunk 2077”, which until now has been the most anticipated video game of the year and whose launch has been surrounded by complaints from players due to its poor quality.

After numerous delays and almost a decade of development, “Cyberpunk 2077” arrived on December 10 and with it a barrage of complaints that today has resulted in its departure from the PlayStation digital store, while the Japanese company offers users the return of the purchase.
A few days ago, the Polish studio CD Projekt Red apologized in a statement for the quality of the game and assured that they would return the money to whoever bought it, although the announcement generated confusion since many copies had been sold through third parties that had to assume the disbursement.
Meanwhile, the creators of the saga “The Witcher” assured that they were working to improve the numerous errors of the game, which had filled the network with memes, and that they were preparing the versions for the latest generation consoles, which would theoretically come out in 2021 although many of them they were waiting for the official launch.

“Sony aspires to achieve a high level of customer satisfaction, so we will offer a full refund to all players who have purchased Cyberpunk 2077 through the PlayStation Store. SIE will also withdraw Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store until further notice, ”the company said in a statement.
With the latest delay, the company assured that this had been a difficult year due to the difficulties of workers to work remotely due to the pandemic, but that it was working to deliver the game in the best conditions.
CD Projekt Red has assured in a statement that it works so that “Cyberpunk 2077” returns to the PlayStation store “as soon as possible.”
The game was one of the most anticipated of the year and had eight million reservations, a record, and the studio recovered with those sales the money it had used in development.
