Cyberpunk 2077 is clearly not going to end anytime soon. Following the announcement earlier this week of the return of the PS4 version of the game to PlayStation Store, the Xbox One version of CD Projekt RED’s RPG has made a name for itself.

Microsoft has just announced that its special refund policy put in place specifically to process Cyberpunk 2077 related claims will end on July 6. The Xbox customer service site recently posted a message indicating a return to normal in its handling of refund requests for disabled games purchased from the Microsoft Store. To justify the thing, the American glove evokes the work carried out by CD Projekt RED on the game in recent months:
The PROJEKT RED CD team continues to do everything possible to improve the Cyberpunk 2077 experience for Xbox gamers and has made a number of updates. With these bets Microsoft will revert its standard Cyberpunk 2077 digital game refund policy on July 6 for new and existing purchases.
Shortly after the chaotic console version of Cyberpunk 2077 released last December, Microsoft and Sony both faced a wave of unhappy customers. If Sony quickly decided to remove the game from its PlayStation Store, Microsoft has meanwhile decided to keep the sale, while greatly relaxing its rules on refunds (all refund requests were granted).
Not yet perfect, but there is better
It therefore appears that the Redmond firm now believes that a sufficient number of fixes have been made by the Polish studio to apply new Cyberpunk 2077 to the same restrictions in terms of refunds as with other titles offered on the Microsoft Store.
That being said, the American glove continues to warn potential buyers of the game on the page of its virtual store devoted to Cyberpunk 2077. Indeed, a message presented on the latter indicates:
Players may experience performance issues on Xbox One until the game has been updated.
For information, the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Cyberpunk 2077 continue to receive regular updates aimed at optimizing these “old gen” versions but also at limiting crashes and reducing the number of bugs. If problems are still present, the situation is no longer what it was when the game was released.
And as for Cyberpunk 2077’s next-gen update slated for PS5 and Xbox Series X | S, CD Projekt RED is still talking about a release at the end of the year.
What do you say about this decision from Microsoft? Do you feel that it is within its rights to restore its normal refund policy after six months of Cyberpunk 2077 updates? Do you keep waiting for the next-gen version of the game before you jump in? Tell us all in the comments below.
