Three years after Xbox and CD Projekt Red partnered to release a limited edition Xbox One Why? Because even years later they are still waiting for information about a refund for the current Cyberpunk 2077 DLC release: Phantom Liberty, which was originally supposed to be included in the bundle.
In 2020, CD Projekt Red and Xbox teamed up to offer a limited edition Cyberpunk 2077-themed Xbox One X console for sale. The $400, 1TB console came with a Cyberpunk-themed controller, a digital copy of Cyberpunk 2077, a one-month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate trial, and, according to Best Buy’s listing, a promise of also the “future first expansion release.” ” to contain. Apparently only 45,000 were made; It was the last Xbox One X limited version to be released.
However, in 2022, CD Projekt announced that development on the Xbox One and PS4 versions of Cyberpunk 2077 had completed and that Phantom Liberty would not be released on these platforms. In a blog post, the studio promised that those who purchased the limited edition console would be refunded a portion of their purchase price with Microsoft Store credit to make up for the missing DLC. But a year later and with the release of the DLC, these console owners are still wondering where the refund is.
Several Reddit and X (formerly Twitter) posts Over the past few days, weeks and months, we have expressed uncertainty about the status of these refunds. Several people claimed to have contacted both Microsoft and CD Projekt customer support, but said both sides appeared to be washing their hands by directing them to the other company for support. And while many users have rightly pointed out that the DLC was still credited to the Xbox account associated with the console and would therefore be available on a Series S or X console, that doesn’t do much good to anyone who doesn’t have an account First of all, the S or X series.
IGN contacted CD Projekt for comment and learned that Microsoft would be reaching out to customers who purchased the limited edition console “soon,” but received no further details. We have also reached out to Microsoft for more clarity and will update upon feedback.
It’s a shame Phantom Liberty never made it to the final generation, because according to our reviewer it’s pretty good – a 9/10 that “marks an immense turnaround for CD Projekt Red’s future RPG.”
