Last month, we told you that Cyberpunk 2077, the latest title from the people behind The Witcher saga, returned to the PlayStation Store. The game was removed in the first place because it had a problematic launch, full of bugs, frequent crashes and significant performance issues -- it would even run below 20 FPS at times on PlayStation 4.
However, the game finally made its way back to PSN on June 21. Apart from a curious “warning” for those who wanted to purchase it on PlayStation 4, the title was ready to be downloaded again. What's more, it has been receiving patches and improvements since release, running better than it did originally.
What’s really interesting about this comeback is that Cyberpunk 2077 actually became the best-selling digital title on PS4 during June. While we don’t have the specific sales figures, you can see a chart with the 20 best-selling titles in a post at the PlayStation Blog. In both the US/Canada and Europe regions, Cyberpunk 2077 reached the top of the chart.
The other games to make it into the top five are Grand Theft Auto V, NBA 2K21, Minecraft, and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on the US/Canada side. The European list is mostly the same with different orders, but FIFA 21 made it to the second place while Cold War only reached ninth spot.
It’s already surprising that a game that was delisted only a week after its original release could hit first place, especially with other massive games like GTA V and Cold War in the same list. However, when you realise that Cyberpunk 2077 also achieved that in less than ten days, and on the platform that ran the worst, it’s quite impressive.
Also, it’s worth mentioning that the title hasn’t reached even the top 20 best selling titles on PlayStation 5.
Cyberpunk Patch 1.23 lists the latest bug fixes — just ahead of the re-release for PS4. CD Projekt Red have said the patch will provide fixes for various issues.
The latest title from the studio behind The Witcher series, CD Projekt Red, is available again for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 users. However, there is a warning for the former.
