Sony just wants you to know that if you had it pre-ordered, it’d be canceled.
Will Cyberpunk 2077 actually make the 2020 launch? Well, at one point it seemed almost certain that it would, but after another unexpected delay (so unexpected even the people working on it didn’t know about it until it happened apparently), it is back to being uncertain. For those who had the game pre-ordered on PS4 digitally, you’ll also probably start getting notifications that your order could be canceled due to the delay. If you didn’t pre-order it, well, you may get that message anyway.
It’s not uncommon for digital pre-orders to be canceled on Sony’s platform after a delay of this nature after a request. Depending on the level of delay, it could also be automatic. It seems in this case, Sony is offering a choice of what you want to do. In something of a fun twist, it seems as if the message of a pre-order cancelation is going out to a lot of users who, in fact, did not have the game pre-ordered. One of the writers for Twisted Voxel, for instance, said he got the message despite never pre-ordering the title on PSN, and there’s links to several users on Reddit saying the same thing. Clearly, it’s just a bug on behalf of Sony, but it’s worth a chuckle.
