When Will It Be Back?

At the earliest, Cyberpunk 2077 is expected to make a return to the PS Store in February 2021. However, there are no guarantees and specifics.

CD Projekt Red are due to launch a second major patch soon, alongside the promise of free DLC in a similar vein to The Witcher 3's content.
