Sony has finally decided to bring Cyberpunk 2077 back to the PlayStation Store, over six months after the company delisted the game. Cyberpunk 2077 is now cheaper too, but there is a warning for the base PS4 console in the absence of more development from CDPR.

Last week, Sony briefly re-listed Cyberpunk 2077, albeit only with the ability to wishlist CDPR's latest title. However, Sony has now made the game available to purchase again, some six months after its ignominious exit.

Cyberpunk 2077 has received a price cut too, having launched at US$69.99. Now, the PlayStation Store edition costs US$49.99, approximately US$5 more than a physical copy on Amazon (affiliate link). Sony has not given Cyberpunk 2077 much of an endorsement though, with a notice on its product page:

Users continue to experience performance issues with this game. Purchase for use on PS4 systems is not recommended. For the best Cyberpunk experience on PlayStation, play on PS4 Pro and PS5 systems.

In short, Cyberpunk 2077 carries this warning because of the bugs and performance issues that exist for the base PS4 controller. CDPR has not made any major changes to the game since Patch 1.2, which it released a few months ago. You can read about what changes CDPR made to Cyberpunk 2077 with Patch 1.2 in our corresponding article.

Incidentally, CDPR claims that it will deliver a free next-gen upgrade of the PS4 version 'in the second half of 2021'. The company has not specified what month or quarter it plans to release this upgrade, though. Ultimately, we still would not recommend purchasing Cyberpunk 2077 if you own a PS4.
