Microsoft’s expanded refund policy for Cyberpunk 2077 to end


Microsoft’s expanded refund policy for Cyberpunk 2077 will come to an end on July 6. Immediately after the launch of the game in December, Xbox offered refunds for gamers unhappy with the game’s performance on Xbox One consoles. 

Cyberpunk 2077, which launched to less than stellar reviews, was available for a refund by both Microsoft and PlayStation for players unhappy with the performance. The refund policy comes to an end six months after the games initial release. With CD Projekt Red having made significant updates and improvements to the game’s performance on previous-gen consoles. 

Microsoft stated, “The team at CD PROJEKT RED continues to work hard to improve the experience of Cyberpunk 2077 for Xbox players and has made a number of updates” Cyberpunk 2077 will now be treated in line with Xbox’s refund policy with all digital games, however, you can still request a refund and Microsoft will determine if you are eligible for it. 

Cyberpunk 2077 returned to the PlayStation store last week. CD Projekt Red stated on Twitter that users “may continue to experience some performance issues with the PS4 edition while we continue to improve stability across all platforms”. Sony has even put a message warning players “Purchase for use on PS4 systems is not recommended,” & “For the best Cyberpunk experience on PlayStation, play on PS4 Pro and PS5 systems.”

Cyberpunk 2077 is available for purchase on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Playstation 4 & 5 and PC.
