CD Projekt's Cyberpunk 2077 game removed from Sony store

Sony has removed the computer game Cyberpunk 2077, developed by the Warsaw-based firm CD Projekt, from its PlayStation store owing to faults.

CD Projekt's shares fell by over 15 percent on Friday morning to PLN 260 (EUR 58.58) after it had announced that Sony was dropping the game, which had only been on the market for a few days after being released to a media fanfare.

The Polish company tweeted that since Friday all PlayStation players can return the digital version of the game and get a refund.

Sony’s decision to drop Cyberpunk 2077, which stars Keanu Reeves, could exact a financial toll on CD Projekt.

Business analysts said it may lead to a lower-than-expected turnover for CD Projekt, and raises the possibility of Sony, and the makers of other gaming consoles, filing claims against the Warsaw company.

Following the game’s debut on December 10 the gaming media have highlighted numerous faults with it and complained of poor quality in its PlayStation and XBox One versions.
