CD Projekt Red's Adam Kicinski recently stated at a shareholder meeting that Sony has yet to reapprove Cyberpunk 2077, despite having been delisted in December. With patch 1.2 performance still not optimal on last-gen consoles, Cyberpunk's PlayStation remains an open question.

A recent statement by CD Projekt Red CEO Adam Kicinski dims prospects that Cyberpunk 2077 will be making its way back to the PlayStation Store anytime soon. During a shareholder call, Kicinski stated that "we are in discussions...but the decision is an exclusive decision of Sony." 

Following a troubled launch with extreme performance drops and game-breaking bugs, alongside mass calls for refunds, Sony delisted Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation store, one of the only times that a major AAA title has been pulled from the storefront due to quality issues. 

While CD Projekt Red continues to update the game, with significant quality of life and performance improvements across platforms, players on the base PlayStation 4 and Xbox One S still have to contend with a sub-30 FPS framerate a wide range of glitches and a generally rough all-round experience. 

On PC, Cyberpunk 2077 - especially with its 1.2 patch, runs significantly better, especially with DLSS enabled on RTX graphics cards. However, deeper issues with the game, including an unexpectedly short main story, and shallow world simulation, might never be addressed.
