In a surprising (and not-so-surprising) twist, following months of absence, Cyberpunk 2077 is likely making a comeback to the PlayStation. But avid fans on the platform will have to wait for it.
Hints about the game’s plausible return have not been too explicit, however. That is, with the only telling signs taking root on one platform—Sony’s digital storefront, the PlayStation Network.
One is the fact that users can now, once again, add the game to their wishlist. A feature that has gone missing following the game’s nonappearance. Second, and lastly, is from reports of pre-existing owners having the option to re-download the game from their library.
Neither Sony nor CD Projekt Red, however, have sent word about the matter.
