Cyberpunk 2077 Updates: Cyberpunk 2077 topped the PlayStation Store’s digital sales statistics in June 2021, the month it was relisted on the platform.
Cyberpunk 2077 has topped the PlayStation Store’s digital sales charts for June 2021, which is rather shocking. The game’s sales plummeted mere weeks after its contentious release, owing in part to its removal from the PlayStation Store. Now, Cyberpunk 2077 is back, and it’s back with a vengeance, having beaten out every other PS4 title on the shop last month.
Following a disastrous debut in December 2020, Sony swiftly withdrew Cyberpunk 2077 from their store, stating that it will be reinstated once the game was updated for consoles. Cyberpunk 2077 did return to the PlayStation Store last month, but it was far from fixed.
It was deemed acceptable by Sony, but the game was pared down to its bare bones for the ordinary PS4 version in order to function at a reasonably consistent performance level. Sony even went so far as to put a notice on the digital edition of the game, reminding gamers that they shouldn’t buy Cyberpunk 2077 unless they have a PS4 Pro or PS5.
Despite this, Cyberpunk 2077 outsold highly praised games like Grand Theft Auto V on the PlayStation Store, according to a post from the PlayStation Blog. The game’s comeback allowed it to leap to the top of the charts, which is even more surprising given that it was only introduced in the last few days of June, giving it an even less window of time to reach the top compared to other games.

Of course, the game is only available on PS4, so it’s possible that some individuals purchased it to run in backward compatibility mode on PS5, but there’s no way to tell how many people are running the contentious RPG on new-gen hardware.
It’ll be interesting to watch how the game does in July. There aren’t many significant game releases for PlayStation systems this month, which could give Cyberpunk 2077 another chance to perform well. In any case, it’s difficult to determine how many people are still waiting to play the game on the PS4.
According to Sony, was delisted to protect players, but it has always been available to those looking for a physical copy. It’s unclear whether anyone is still waiting to buy the game, but at this point, it might be better for those people to just wait for the PS5 version.
Even though has returned to PlayStation platforms, it still has various flaws on last-gen consoles, and players may be hesitant to pay full price for such a contentious title. Despite its many shortcomings, it appears that there is still a market for this game. In any case, is now available for purchase on all major platforms.
