After a bug backlash Sony draws Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store
In the wake of complaints of bugs in the Poland CD project video game, Sony just dragges Cyberpunk 2077 off its PlayStation store one week after its debut.
A megalopolis obsessed with strength, glamor and modifications of the body, which features Hollywood star Keanu Reeves, has been delayed 3 times in the role-plays game, which has been dubbed "open-world action-adventure story set in ... a megalopolis obsessed with power, glamour and body modification"
Another blow for the CD Projekt, a Polish top video game producer with record high shares over the past week as fans and game critics expressed their complaints was Sony's unusual move.
CD project said that the suspension was temporary and worked very hard for the game to return as soon as possible to the PlayStation Store.
The game maker has said on Friday that he plans to get a refund for any physical or digital copy user, who has purchased it from the retail sector.

Although the coronavirus epidemic has increased demand for games, there is a lack of new titles that draw special attention.
Several large-scale games, such as the Halo Infinite from Microsoft, have also been postponed because developers are trapped at home during the restriction of coronavirus.
The effect of COVID 19
CEO Adam Kicinski said that the CD Project would have preferred less bugs when Cyberpunk is released in 2077, but it did not consider a fourth delay.
He said that fewer external testers had existed since COVID-19 did not allow them to check out the game from home.
Kacper Kopron, analyst at the Trigon DM Brokerage, reported that We are very deceptive of information that shows that the game wasn't ready for its debut in December and its decision to launch it has been a major wrong.
Over several years, Sony's step threatens goodwill with fans and CD Project vowed to iron out bugs by upgrading them and patching them in January and February.
CD-Projekt was supposed to break the sales record with Cyberpunk, which also began at Microsoft's XBox and Google's Stadia, with its The Witcher Series, to become one of the largest listed companies in Poland.
In a tweet, Xbox Support said Friday it would extend its current refund policy to include a complete refund for anyone who had digitally bought Cyberpunk 2077 from the Microsoft Store before further notification.
"While we know the developers at CD Projekt Red have worked hard to ship Cyberpunk 2077 in extremely challenging circumstances, we also realize that some players have been unhappy with the current experience on older consoles," tweeted Xbox Help.
Google did not address requests for feedback immediately.
