Dating back to more than a year ago, you could not convince many fans at the time that Cyberpunk 2077 would be in the position it is in right now. The game, while praised in some aspects, proves to be a cardinal sin in other avenues that rubs players the wrong way. Of course, that is in reference to the game’s version on the previous Xbox One & PlayStation 4 systems.

The issue became so apparent that even Sony Interactive Entertainment had to step in to relinquish any more problems from manifesting. Its answer, remove the game from the PlayStation Store. And now nearly half a year since the original release of the game and Cyberpunk 2077 is still nowhere to be seen on the digital storefront.

Most recently, CD Projekt Red commented to possibly dismantle the standalone multiplayer project for Cyberpunk 2077 as it would “reconsider” the pursuit. But in a new interview with Reuters, the Polish game studio insists that it will not abandon the release altogether.

I don’t see an option to shelve Cyberpunk 2077. We are convinced that we can bring the game to such a state that we can be proud of it and therefore successfully sell it for years to come.

While the future for CD Projekt Red is still left uncertain now with Cyberpunk 2077 on the reworking phase, there is a possible forecast to speed through the damage already dealt. In that, the Polish developer just recently acquired Digital Scapes Studios and converting the support studio into a new Canadian branch, CD Projekt Red Vancouver.

Noted, CD Projekt Red is also in the middle of legal battles for the unsatisfying launch for Cyberpunk 2077. But more interesting is the investigation being performed by Poland’s Office of Competition and Consumer Protection. If more trouble sourced internally is uncovered, the group will look towards disciplining CD Projekt Red. You can read the full report by heading here.
