After many months, Cyberpunk 2077 has finally returned to digital distribution on PlayStation Store. However, the store advises against buying the game for those who own a PS4. Currently, comfortable play is only possible on PlayStation 4 Pro and PlayStation 5, but the developers are still working on improvements for the oldest of these consoles.
CD Projekt RED also informed that in the second half of this year an update will be released that will introduce a free upgrade of the PS4 edition to the next-gen version. The exact date of release of this patch was not provided.
Cyberpunk 2077 was released on December 10, 2020 on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Google Stadia. The game debuted in terrible technical condition. The PC release was playable, but on old consoles the game ran downright tragic. As a result, Sony resorted to the nuclear option and pulled the game from PlayStation Store a week after its release.
Since then, the developers have released many updates that gradually improved the game. Those who bought the boxed PS4 version (or purchased the digital version before it was removed from the PS Store) were able to benefit from these patches, but initially they didn't make much of a difference. It wasn't until a recent patch, numbered 1.23, that brought Cyberpunk 2077 to a state that Sony deemed sufficient to resume sales on the PlayStation Store. With it, the game is performing decently even on PS4, despite the store advising against playing it on that hardware.
