Fate of Cyberpunk 2077 on PS Store Remains Unknown; $1,37 Dividend Per Share

CD Projekt CEO Adam Kicinski comments on the continued lack of Cyberpunk 2077 on the PlayStation Store. At the same time, the company's shareholders are allocating more than half a billion PLN (over $130 million) in dividends, which will result in a payout of PLN 5 ($1,37) per share.

CD Projekt is still waiting for Sony's decision to bring back Cyberpunk 2077 to PlayStation Store. Over 5 months have passed since the game was pulled from the store. During Tuesday's shareholder meeting, CDP's board was asked about the current status of negotiations between the company and Sony Interactive Entertainment. The question was answered by CEO, Adam Kicinski in the following words:

"Unfortunately I have no information in this regard. We are still in discussions and with every patch, the game gets better and there is visible progress, but as we said, the decision is an exclusive decision of Sony, so we are waiting for the information about the fact, that they took the decision to bring back this game. Until then, I am not able to tell you anything more."

We received a similar answer at the end of March from Michal Nowakowski, CD Projekt's senior vice president of business development, who, when asked about the same issue, replied that Cyberpunk 2077's return to Sony's digital store is closer rather than further away, and fixing bugs and the game's developing will certainly speed up the decision-making process.

What's more, Nowakowski believes that bringing back the game to PlayStation Store will have a positive impact on its sales as much as the release of game's dedicated PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S versions. He also adds that the return of Cyberpunk 2077 to Sony's store may change gamers' attitudes towards buying the title, not only in the case of PlayStation users but also other platforms.

Also interesting is today's decision of CD Projekt shareholders to allocate over $130 million from the net profit for 2020 for dividend. This means the payment of $1,37 per share, with their number reaching 54,166,835 divided among 456 investors.
