Cyberpunk 2077 players can get refunds without returning the game

To be perfectly honest, we want Cyberpunk 2077 to get better and come out of this rather horrific launch month and a bit with a proper game that works on the consoles it launched on.

That's not happening at the moment though, but we do want it to work out okay in the end because people have put in an absurd amount of time to try and make it so.

It does feel a bit absurd at this point to be writing about more mishaps regarding the game, but that's what we're doing.

This time around it's regarding the refunds, which don't appear to be going as you'd expect.

Have some money back, but keep the game?

You'll likely remember the whole refund thing, especially if you're one of the people who own the game on a console.

Well, as reported by Vice, it looks as though some people are getting a refund, but they're also getting to keep the game.

That's not how anybody was expecting this to work, but it certainly seems to be the case.

The article shows that one person had a refund of $271.10 to cover the cost of a collectors edition of the game, and yet they've not had to send anything back. Nor has there been a request to do so.

Step 3 = Profit?

The article explains that in one situation "Ben, who asked to only be identified by his first name to avoid the attention of the entire Internet, was in this exact situation, and told by a retailer to speak with CD Projekt RED. When Ben filled out CD Projekt RED's refund form, there was no option for this particular situation. Ben had to follow-up with the developer and explained their weird predicament."

The company then went on to refund the money, but the user still has access to the game.

We're not business experts, but this seems like an odd way to try and make money.
