Cyberpunk 2077 will still be updated on PS4 despite store removal

CD Projekt assures fans that Cyberpunk 2077 on PS4 will continue to receive patches, while the company’s share price plunges further.

Earlier this morning, Cyberpunk 2077 was delisted from the PlayStation Store, meaning you can no longer purchase it digitally for either the PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5.

While it’s too early to tell when it will become available again, CD Projekt took to Twitter to say that anyone who owns the game physically or digitally for PlayStation will still receive planned patches and updates.

This is at least some kind of good news amidst the whole debacle, alongside the fact that those who bought the game digitally can now get a refund, after some initial difficulties.

For CD Projekt itself, though, the bad news only keeps on coming. The game’s launch has not only crippled its reputation but is having a severe financial impact on the company.

Only yesterday, it was reported that the company’s founders lost more than $1 billion (£740 million) and shares have only continued to drop.

According to Business Insider, in the wake of Sony’s removal of the game, shares have plummeted as much as 20%, which is believed to be equivalent to another $1.7 billion lost.

As disastrous as this news is, Cyberpunk 2077 was still a huge financial success for CD Projekt. The company itself reported that it had recouped development and marketing costs on pre-orders alone.

At the time of writing, there are no plans for the game to be pulled from Microsoft’s digital storefront.

Cyberpunk 2077 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia. PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S versions are planned to release in 2021.
