As promised, Sony has restored Cyberpunk 2077 on the PlayStation Store after two major patches. However, developer CD Projekt Red recommends that players limit themselves to the PS4 Pro and PS5 versions of the game, as the basic PS4 version still has some “performance issues”.
“Users may continue to experience some performance issues with the PlayStation 4 edition as we continue to improve cross-platform stability,” the developers announce.

From the study they also pointed out that a free update for the next generation will arrive in the second half of the year.
From agreement with Engadget, the Polish studio hopes that the game’s return to the PS store will mark the end of this controversial episode for them.
Cyberpunk 2077 had a failed launch in December and users complained about various glitches and crashes, especially on consoles. Before launch, the studio focused more on its performance on the PC version and never showed images of how it performed on consoles.
The studio president went on to say that the game’s performance on Xbox One and PS4 was “surprisingly good for such a big world.”
After the embarrassment, Sony reacted swiftly by taking out the title of its digital store and offering customers a refund.
In the months that followed, CD Projeckt released several fixes and two large patches for the game, although the second was delayed after suffering a ransomware attack that left some employees unable to access their computers.
Despite the myriad of issues, Cyberpunk managed to become the studio’s biggest game, with more than 13.7 million copies sold by the end of 2020.
