CD Projekt has started refunds to dissatisfied players of Cyberpunk 2077 for their money. And it seems they can keep the game despite the refund.
Due to its poor condition, Cyberpunk 2077 was removed from the PlayStation Store last December. At the same time, Sony ensured a fairly straightforward refund of the purchase price.
CD Projekt later announced that players who own a disc version of Cyberpunk 2077 could also claim a refund. This should be done out of pocket. And as VICE reports, the repayment of the sums has now started. With a special feature: All players who registered with the publication stated that they could keep their copy of Cyberpunk 2077.
Obviously, the generous refund doesn’t only apply to the standard version. In at least one case, the Collector’s Edition was reimbursed, which cost almost $300. The purchase amount was transferred, which was done via PayPal. But here, too, the game and the additional content were not requested back.
Players who think they can make their version of Cyberpunk 2077 a free copy will have to be disappointed. The reimbursement of the purchase amount from CD Projekt was tied to one condition: Officially, it could only be requested until December 21, 2020.
Further refunds are likely to be difficult by now, as the state of Cyberpunk 2077 is well known. Players who are only now accessing the coverage should hardly have escaped. Regardless of this, CD Projekt is striving to improve the console versions of Cyberpunk 2077 significantly in the coming months.
CD Projekt recently announced that the new-gen version of the title for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S will not be available until the second half of the year. And the free downloadable content is apparently taking longer.
