Adam Kici?ski, the President and Joint CEO of CD Projekt RED, recently came out and stated they still plan on selling Cyberpunk 2077, “for years to come.” This and more were touched on in a Reuters interview.

If you recall, Sony pulled the game from their digital store shelves last year after its disastrous launch in December. Kici?ski noted that they were in contact with Sony, but there’s no timetable as of now when Playstation gamers can expect to see Cyberpunk 2077 return to their store.

However, Kici?ski did note,

“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 this doesn’t commit to a timetable, there is perhaps some hope with the most recent patch, Patch 1.2, bringing hundreds of fixes. This patch, however, was delayed from its original set release in February.

CD Projekt RED outlined its plans for basically fixing the game and updating the now-current-gen consoles – the Xbox Series X|S and PS5 – with their own bespoke versions of Cyberpunk 2077. This roadmap included both 1.1 and 1.2 patches which have already released.

The roadmap also included Free DLCs and the purported console update for sometime later this year. We still don’t concrete dates tied to these releases. More recently, the previously reported standalone multiplayer mode was being reconsidered. Kici?ski had stressed that their single-player vision won’t be compromised,

"Let's stress this here: CD Projekt RED makes single-player, story-driven AAA RPGS. That is not changing. What is changing is our long-term approach to online."
