Xbox players who bought Cyberpunk 2077 since launch have been able to request a refund for their purchase, no questions asked, though that is all ending next month.
After what will most likely be hailed as one of the worst launches in the history of gaming, rather than remove Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store the way Sony did, Microsoft instead opted to keep selling the game with a warning message for Xbox One owners and a slight alteration made to their refund policy, specifically for Cyberpunk 2077 which allowed players to request a refund for their purchase, no questions asked.
On July 6 however that will no longer be the case, as Xbox Support has made us aware via an update under Digital Game Purchase Refund Terms. Microsoft will revert to their standard policy for refunds which applies to every other game on the Microsoft Store. The team also released a statement as to why the change, and why it is being implemented now. “The team at CD PROJEKT RED continues to work hard to improve the experience of Cyberpunk 2077 for Xbox players and has made a number of updates. Given these updates, Microsoft will be returning to our standard digital game refund policy for Cyberpunk 2077 on July 6 for both new and existing purchases.”
This comes now just after Sony announced the return of Cyberpunk 2077 to the PlayStation Store, despite it still returning with a warning. Curiously, while the refund policy is changing, there doesn’t seem to be any plans to remove the warning for Xbox One players. So it would seem that while CD Projekt Red has met at least some requirements for both Microsoft and Sony in how well the game has progressed with updates.
There are still however multiple users experiencing issues, and bugs are still a core part of the Cyberpunk 2077 experience. The team at CD Projekt Red seems to still have a ways to go.
