"Cyberpunk 2077's" refund policy is coming to an end. The company plans to go back to its standard refund policy starting July 6.
Cyberpunk 2077 Full Refund to End
Just a week after the game's disastrous launched last year, Microsoft started offering full refunds for the players who bought the game through the Microsoft Store, according to Engadget.
At the time, the company stated that the full refund policy would be in place until "further notice." However, on June 22, Microsoft announced it plans to end the refund, adding that the game would fall under the company's standard refund policy for digital games.
In a statement posted on its support page for game refunds, Microsoft said that the team at CD PROJEKT RED is working hard to improve the experience of "Cyberpunk 2077" fans, especially for Xbox players. The team has now made a number of updates since its December launch.
Microsoft added that given the updates on the game, the company would be returning to their standard digital game refund policy on July 6. This will apply for both old and new purchases of the "Cyberpunk 2077" game.
Under Microsoft's standard refund policy, all sales are already considered final. However, players can request a refund, and Microsoft will determine if they are eligible to receive it. Each refund request will go under a thorough investigation conducted by Microsoft's customer service team.
The news of "Cyberpunk 2077's" full refund policy change follows the game's return to the PlayStation Store that is scheduled on June 28. The game is expected to make a comeback just six months after it was pulled out due to numerous bugs.
Since its launch, game developer CD PROJEKT RED has released patches and hotfixes to remedy the bug problem and improve its performance. A free next-gen upgrade is already scheduled for release towards the end of 2021.
Cyberpunk 2077's Bug Patches
The patch is heavy, with players reporting a download size of 30GB. The patch provides numerous crash fixes in animations, scenes, UI, physics, and gameplay systems.
The patch also promises a reduction in the number of crashes through memory optimizations and memory management improvements in multiple systems.
Sony told Eurogamer that players would continue to experience slight performance issues with the PS4 edition while CD PROJEKT RED continues to improve stability across all platforms.
The improvements done in patch 1.23 were enough to let Sony add "Cyberpunk 2077" back into its stores, but the company admitted that more work was done to get the game running on PlayStation 4 in the long run term.
The rest of the patch notes were dedicated to fixing problems on the platform and a number of quest bugs. Some issues, such as dropping an NPC's body that caused too many destructions, were fixed, and Maelstromers, a famous gang in the game, can now be told to stop T-posing.
