Microsoft will stop offering full refunds for Cyberpunk 2077 on July 6. This reversed the company’s decision to issue a refund for the game after its release.

Sony removed the game from the PlayStation Store while Microsoft began offering full refunds to anyone who purchased the game. However, time passed and Cyberpunk 2077 has certainly become easier to play on consoles, those actions are being scaled back.
According to Microsoft, this reversal is due to the game’s recent patches, which have increased stability and fixed significant bugs in recent months.
“The CD Projekt Red team continues to work hard to improve the experience of Cyberpunk 2077 for Xbox players and has made some updates,” reads a statement on the Xbox support subscription and checkout page. “With these updates, Microsoft will revert to our standard digital game refund policy for Cyberpunk 2077 on July 6 for both new and existing purchases. “

Cyberpunk 2077 also recently made it back to Sony’s digital store, the PlayStation store. As of June 21, PlayStation users have been able to download the game to their consoles. However, CD Projekt Red has give a warning for anyone picking up the game, saying that “users may continue to experience some performance issues with the PS4 version while we continue to improve stability across all platforms. The PS4 Pro and PS5 versions of the game will offer the best PlayStation experience.”
