As promised last week, Cyberpunk 2077 has returned to the PlayStation Store after 186 days away – but Sony has once again cautioned base PS4 players that they could experience performance problems. That should be eased over time, with the promise that this year will continue to see fixes for the last-gen version.

In a tweet (below), PlayStation announced the return of the game to its digital storefront, but made clear to mention that, “Work on the PS4 version continues, with fixes and updates to be released throughout the year.”

Cyberpunk 2077 is now available at PlayStation Store. Work on the PS4 version continues, with fixes and updates to be released throughout the year: https://t.co/XWCfOEQrLS For the best experience on PlayStation, playing on PS4 Pro or PS5 consoles is recommended.

It’s not clear whether Sony expects the PS4 version to be in a ‘final’ state by the end of the year, but it has clearly received assurances from CD Projekt Red that the last-gen version will receive more work in the near future. Last week, a new 1.23 patch added more console optimizations, hopefully signalling the start of that set of ongoing improvements.

No reasoning has been given for why the game has been re-released on PlayStation now, especially with Sony repeatedly warning players about PS4 performance issues – one of the primary reasons the game was removed from sale in the first place.

In our Performance Review of the last major patch, 1.2, we said that Cyberpunk is “still a game that’s in development, and still in that beta state triage process”, with base console performance still very poor.
