Microsoft has added a warning to their listing of Cyberpunk 2077 to alert potential Xbox One players to the game’s “performance issues.” It comes after they also opened up full refunds for players, following Sony’s lead for PlayStation players.
Cyberpunk 2077 has now come under the microscope. After its wildly hyped launch, most players were happy with their experience on next-gen consoles and PC — but last-gen players on the PS4 and Xbox One were left hanging.
Between horrendous glitches, buggy textures, and other performance mishaps, the game wasn’t worth its price tag. After Sony recognized this and pulled the game from its store on December 17, Microsoft are giving players a chance to refund the title.
Cyberpunk 2077: To ensure that every player can get the experience they expect on Xbox, we will be expanding our existing refund policy to offer full refunds to anyone who purchased Cyberpunk 2077 digitally from the Microsoft Store, until further notice. https://t.co/04TcniwVzy

“To ensure that every player can get the experience they expect on Xbox, we will be expanding our existing refund policy to offer full refunds to anyone who purchased Cyberpunk 2077 digitally from the Microsoft Store, until further notice,” they said in a December 18 statement.
“While we know the developers at CD PROJEKT RED have worked hard to ship Cyberpunk 2077 in extremely challenging circumstances, we also realize that some players have been unhappy with the current experience on older consoles.”
However, they’ve also gone a step further. Although they haven’t pulled Cyberpunk like Sony, Microsoft is warning players about the game’s poor performance on the Xbox One before they buy the title.

“Users may experience performance issues when playing this game on Xbox One consoles until this game is updated,” their store listing states.
It comes after the developers, CD PROJEKT RED, said they were “working hard to bring Cyberpunk 2077 back to the PlayStation Store as soon as possible” after the game’s delisting.

The same promises are being made to Xbox One players, and while progress is being made in December 18’s 1.05 hotfix, there’s still a long way to go.
