The expanded policy to offer full refunds was first introduced in December.

Microsoft has announced plans to finish its expanded Cyberpunk 2077 refund policy next month.

In December 2020, just every week after the controversial launch of CD Projekt RED’s Cyberpunk 2077, Microsoft opened its refund policy for the sport, where it offered full refunds to players. At the time, the corporate said that the expanded policy would still be in effect “until further notice”.

However, consistent with a replacement update on the company’s support page for game refunds, this full refund policy is about to return to an end early next month. Microsoft has cited the developer’s continued work on the RPG because it decided to return to its regular refund policy.

“The team at CD Projekt RED continues to figure hard to enhance the experience of Cyberpunk 2077 for Xbox players and has made a variety of updates,” the tech giant said. “Given these updates, Microsoft is going to be returning to our standard digital game refund policy for Cyberpunk 2077 on July 6 for both new and existing purchases.”

Under Microsoft’s normal refund policy, the sale of all digital games is “considered final”, although players can request a refund under “extenuating circumstances”. Microsoft will then determine if a user is eligible to receive a refund, supported “a sort of factors like time since the dating of purchase, time since release and use of the product”.

Microsoft’s decision to finish its extended refund policy for Cyberpunk 2077 comes hot on the heels of Sony’s decision to relist the futuristic RPG purchasable on the PlayStation store. However, the sport’s PSN product page features a notice that the game is “not recommended” for PS4 consoles.
