After approaching CD Projekt Red (CDPR) for comment they pointed us towards this regulatory filing translated to English. CDPR has declined to comment further, but the filing confirms that Cyberpunk 2077 will be purchasable on June 21.
The aim of the filing is to publicly disclose Sony Interactive Entertainment’s choice to “reinstate the availability of the digital edition of Cyberpunk 2077 on PlayStation Store, effective on 21 June 2021”.

The CD Projekt RED title appears when you search for it on the PS5 store under the ‘Just Announced’ tag. Players can wishlist the game or redownload the digital version if they have already purchased it. It appears as though Cyberpunk 2077 cannot be bought if it isn’t already owned.
Cyberpunk 2077 was taken off the PlayStation Store back in December 2020 following complaints about the game’s quality. Sony also offered all players who purchased the game refunds. The decision was confirmed on the company’s official website. The statement read:
“SIE strives to ensure a high level of customer satisfaction, therefore we will begin to offer a full refund for all gamers who have purchased Cyberpunk 2077via PlayStation Store. SIE will also be removing Cyberpunk 2077 from PlayStation Store until further notice.”
This came just after CD Projekt apologised for Cyberpunk 2077’s poor quality on consoles and told PlayStation owners to be patient for refunds of the game.
An internal ‘glitch montage’ leaked recently as part of the CD Projekt ransomware attack by hackers. The video implies that CD Projekt Red knew about the glitchy state of the game prior to its release in September 2020.

In a now deleted tweet from Cyberpunk 2077 senior producer Slava Lukyanenka, the existence of the video was confirmed.
He said: “The video is a fun composition of bug materials collected by QA and developers through years of development. How exactly it proves your point?”
In other news, Capcom confirmed during an E3 livestream that Resident Evil Village will be getting downloadable content (DLC), also that the multiplayer title RE:Verse will be arriving next month.
