Big news.

Sony has announced that it is pulling the wildly-anticipated game, Cyberpunk 2077, from its online PlayStation store amid a host of compatibility issues, bugs and health risks.

The dystopian-themed game is reportedly one of the most expensive video games ever created and was met with much excitement when it was released on 10 December.

In fact, the game had eight million preorders on PC and games consoles before its release but the rollout has not been smooth.

“SIE (Sony Interactive Entertainment) strives to ensure a high level of customer satisfaction, therefore we will begin to offer a full refund for all gamers who have purchased Cyberpunk 2077 via PlayStation Store,” Sony said in a statement.

“SIE will also be removing Cyberpunk 2077 from PlayStation Store until further notice.”

While the game has received a host of positive reviews on PC, the response on consoles has proven to be less than satisfactory.

The game was made by Warsaw-based CD Projekt RED, who this week apologised and promised to fix the bugs with patches in January and February next year. But they have also offered refunds to customers who are unwilling to wait for the updates.

Cyberpunk 2077 was delayed twice already this year prior to its release and the company has been forced to add health warnings after one reviewer complained they’d had an epileptic seizure playing the game.
