London — Cyberpunk 2077 is back on the PlayStation Store next week.
According to a brief statement from publisher CD Projekt Tuesday, the troubled sci-fi video game will be back on Sony’s digital media store on June 21st.
The share of CD Projekt soared 6.5% in the news.
Cyberpunk was unprecedentedly yanked from the PlayStation Store late last year in response to fan backlash against numerous bugs and performance issues in older consoles.
This was a big blow to CD Projekt, which saw a surge in demand for games and increased sales during the release of Sony’s PlayStation 5 and Microsoft’s Xbox Series X consoles.
Cyberpunk was a big hit before its release, with actor Keanu Reeves appearing as one of the main characters in the game.
However, in 2020, there were multiple delays as developers competed to prepare for the release of the game. When cyberpunk was finally released in December, angry gamers used social media to share clips of many of the issues they faced trying to play it.
The failure eventually resulted in Sony and Microsoft offering players a full refund of the digital version of the game, the former going one step further and delisting from the PlayStation Store.
To make matters worse, CD Projekt said in February that it had been hit by a ransomware attack. Hackers have threatened to release source code for games such as cyberpunk and the Witcher 3 role-playing game.
The company said last week that data obtained during a cyberattack is currently in circulation online and may contain information about current and former employees as well as games.
