Unlike Sony, it does not appear that Microsoft has pulled Cyberpunk 2077 entirely from its webstore.
As previously reported, Polish developers CD Projekt Red were forced to issue an apology and promise refunds after buyers — and especially console owners — vented growing frustrations over the Keanu Reeves-starring game's serious performance issues.
Depsite Cyberpunk 2077 being delayed multiple times, countless gamers complained of repeated crashes and immersion-destroying bugs on PC and especially older consoles such as PS4 and Xbox One.
CD Projekt Red tweeted today that it will ensure any unsatisfied players will get a full refund, no matter if they bought the game physically or digitally. You can see the company's latest tweet below.
