Cyberpunk 2077 Returns To PlayStation Store, PS4 Still ‘Not Recommended’
Over six months after its infamous banning on the PlayStation Store, Cyberpunk 2077 has now returned to the Sony-centered platform. Developer CD Projekt RED and Sony announced the news on social media, assuring the console version is once again available to download for PlayStation 4, PS4 Pro, and PS5 (through backward compatibility).

While deemed suitable for the digital store, the base PS4 version of Cyberpunk 2077 was called out as being ‘not recommended’ for the time being, with CDPR informing “some performance issues” may still exist with the last-gen port. Fixes to “improve stability across all platforms” were confirmed to continue through the remainder of 2021, but the company advised the “best experience” would still be had on the upgraded PS4 Pro and the next-gen PS5.
Users may continue to experience some performance issues with the PS4 edition while we continue to improve stability across all platforms. The PS4 Pro and PS5 versions of the game will provide the best experience on PlayStation.

This awaited status change comes only days following the latest Cyberpunk 2077 patch 1.23, which repaired a handful of in-game scenarios and stability issues, as well as offered another round of much-needed optimizations. Even after months of significant patches and hotfixes, CDPR’s continued pledge to glow up the console version had only brought it closer to returning to the shores of PlayStation, with the latest fix officially pushing it over the edge.
Patch 1.23 is available on all platforms!

Even with this new milestone, many more lie ahead with regards to Cyberpunk 2077. As the title adopts a new game director, a slew of content is confirmed to be in the works, including a next-gen update for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S as well as a batch of free DLCs to be rolled out sometime before the end of 2021. A multiplayer component was also thought to be on the way, but an internal change at the studio appears to have nipped these plans in the bud.
Cyberpunk 2077 is out now for PC, Google Stadia, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, as well as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S via backward compatibility.
