Sony pulls top seller 'Cyberpunk' from game store

Sony says it’s pulling the much-hyped ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ from its online store.

That after users complained that the game starring Keanu Reeves was rife with bugs.

The Japanese firm says it will now offer full refunds to anyone who bought the game, which was priced at up to $60.

Cyberpunk was created by Polish developer CD Projekt.

It was much anticipated, after smash-hit games from the same company.

They helped make CD Projekt one of Poland’s most valuable listed firms, worth almost nine billion dollars.

And when Cyberpunk went on sale last week it immediately topped download charts.

Analysts predicted it would smash sales records.

But then the reviews started to come in.

Players reported repeated freezing, and unnatural behaviour by characters.

Within days, the version for Sony’s PlayStation had a score of just 2.8 out of 10 on review aggregator Metacritic.

CD Projekt shares have tumbled as the problems emerged.

On Friday (December 18) morning they dropped almost a fifth before steadying.

Now the company has promised to fix all the bugs, and get the game back in the PlayStation store as soon as possible.

Boxed versions are still available in shops, but some analysts say the debacle seems certain to cut future sales.
