Cyberpunk 2077 is a game that offers a lot when it comes to premise and design, with the only real problem being the hasted execution.

The game already made CD Projekt Red’s revenues soar way past the $1-billion mark, and this is all due to the company’s history of making outstanding games.

Well, this time player anticipation got the better of them, and the continuous pressure of releasing the game sooner and sooner ended with them releasing a half-baked title that is complete from a feature and story standpoint, but faulty from a stability point of view.

That being said, more and more players are going towards getting a refund, with the intend of buying back the game only when it is deemed as being playable.

How do I refund Cyberpunk 2077?

Cyberpunk 2077 on PC

As you may know, Cyberpunk 2077 for PC can be played on 3 different platforms: GOG, Steam and Epic Games.

Well, refunding the game on each of these platforms is possible as long as you fall under certain conditions:

GOG refund policy states that any game can be refunded within 30 days of purchase, even if it was downloaded and played.

This is probably the most flexible of all refund policies, and getting your money back is guaranteed in the case of Cyberpunk 2077, especially since GOG is owned by CD Projekt Red after all.

Steam refund policy states that you can get a refund within 14 days of purchase, and only if you played less than 2 hours.

However, Steam noted that in the case of Cyberpunk 2077, they will be more flexible with the terms, especially since many of the bugs are encountered way into the game.

Epic Games refund policy is exactly the same as with Steam, although they noted that:

Products that include virtual currency, skins, or other consumables and products or games that are marked as non-refundable are not eligible for refund

Cyberpunk 2077 on Xbox

If you bought Cyberpunk 2077 for the Xbox One, or the Xbox Series X|S, you can refund it within 14 days of purchase.

However, Microsoft does not guarantee a refund just because you made the request.

Nonetheless, the refund request can be made from here.

Cyberpunk 2077 on PS4

In general, Sony has never been great with refunds, and this can be seen from the sheer number of users that tried getting refunds on Cyberpunk 2077 and failed.

Fortunately, this all changed as Sony made an exception for this particular title, and they are offering complete refunds for anyone that bought the game.

However, game boxes that have been opened or user will incur a restoking fee.

Gamestop refund policy dictates that buyers can return any game within 30 days, and they will also get a full refund as long as the game is within its original packaging.

Take note that, if you opened the game, this refund window is shortened to only 7 days.

That pretty much covers up our list of al major game platforms and retailers that you may have bought Cyberpunk 2077 from, and their respective return policy.

If you yourself bought the game, take note that this is merely the current state, and that other previous CD Projekt Red titles had a similar history.
