Microsoft has confirmed that its Cyberpunk 2077 refund scheme is reverting to the company’s more standard refund policy for digitally-purchased games on Xbox in July.
Since December 2020, Xbox has been offering refunds to disgruntled Cyberpunk 2077 players consumers on Xbox who purchased the game on the Microsoft Store, which is against the company’s usual stance of seeing digital sales on the platform as final.
Microsoft will be terminating that policy soon, though. As of July 6, Cyberpunk 2077 will be treated just like all the other games on the Microsoft Store. That is to say: “all sales of Digital Game Products are considered final, but we understand there may be extenuating circumstances.”
As per Microsoft, “all new and existing” sales of Cyberpunk 2077 will be affected by this change when it takes place in July. Cyberpunk 2077 returned to the PlayStation Store this week, which marked the end of an eight-month period of the game’s absence on Sony storefronts. Sony pulled Cyberpunk 2077 off the PS Store after the game’s buggy, unstable state became clear, but Microsoft opted to keep the game on sale, albeit with modified refund practices.

Maybe stemming the flow of all these refunds will make up for CD Projekt’s big profit slump in Q1 2021.
