A gale, a veritable torrent of information and news, has created CD Projekt after the launch of Cyberpunk 2077. Today, Sony announced that it is withdrawing the futuristic title from the PlayStation Store and offering a full refund for all those who have purchased its digital version.
Such a far-reaching decision has had an impact on the economic situation of the Polish developer. As an analyst reveals to Daniel Ahmad, the company’s shares on the stock market have dropped 15% suddenly. Sony’s announcement caused this steep drop, considering that the game has already covered the costs, but the shares were down 29% on launch day.
Most likely, there is an aggravation to this situation, and that is that Sony has not placed limitations when requesting a refund. Other platforms and stores are more restrictive in this process, so not all requests will come to fruition.
CD Projekt undoubtedly has squandered the trust they have built over the years. This was recognized by the company in their statement, in which they recognized multiple errors. Also, in the recent question and answer session with their investors, they admitted not paying enough attention to the PS4 and Xbox One versions.
The week has been a roller coaster ride. Devotion, the Chinese government’s work censored, has also been removed from GOG, digital store CD Projekt’s, sparking criticism from the community.
