Cyberpunk 2077 withdrawal from PSN: Microsoft would not intend to emulate its rival

After Cyberpunk 2077 was removed from PlayStation Store, it was thought that the CD title PROJEKT RED would also become un-downloadable on Xbox One and Series. The developer of the title, however, claims not to be in discussions with Microsoft about such a decision.

For having wanted to satisfy millions of players, while the stated ambition probably deserved to neglect this audience in favor of a clean and almost flawless copy, CD PROJEKT RED delivered a Cyberpunk 2077 which finally paid the price for this generosity .

Cyberpunk 2077 withdrawal from PSN: Microsoft would not intend to emulate its rival

On PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S / X, Cyberpunk 2077 does not have so many flaws, and it should be remembered that The Witcher 3 from the same developer was not free from all flaws when it was released. However, on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the minimum quality is not there .

Cyberpunk 2077: refunds granted on PS4

Faced with many refund requests, with the developers' hands joined to keep players waiting for updates instead of parting with their game, Sony has just removed Cyberpunk 2077 from its PlayStation Store. We learn at the same time that all players who have requested a refund of the game will get it.

CD PROJEKT RED indicated that while waiting for the game to return to the PSN, efforts will be made to improve the experience of its current owners. But what about Microsoft's side? At equivalent power, the Xbox One is probably in the same boat as the PS4 in terms of the performance of Cyberpunk 2077 that runs there.

Xbox has also confirmed that players requesting a refund for their digital purchase of Cyberpunk 2077 can be satisfied. But can we expect the title to disappear from Microsoft's commercial platforms as well? To Reuters , CD PROJEKT RED CEO Adam Kicinski gave the following response:

“We are not in discussions with Microsoft [on the subject] at the moment” .

It is not said that Microsoft really wants to cut the cord too, especially since this temporary withdrawal at Sony will lead consumers to turn to the offer opposite. Consumers who, let us remember, therefore agree to pay more than for a physical version. Regarding CD PROJEKT RED, if the follow-up of their new title is as exemplary as that of No Man's Sky , redemption would not be an empty wish.
