Sony will allow "Cyberpunk 2077" to be sold on its online PlayStation store starting June 21, the game's creators at CD Projekt Red said today.

Why it matters: Sales of the buggy would-be blockbuster have been hit hard since Sony delisted the game shortly after its launch.

  • Many fans had high hopes that the game would meet the level of quality of CDPR's last adventure, "The Witcher 3."
  • A reappearance may signal the game is in a viable condition to play.

Between the lines: Multiple patches from CDPR in the first half of the year had not swayed Sony to list it again.

  • Then, this morning, a listing for "Cyberpunk 2077" briefly appeared on the PlayStation store fueling speculation that Sony may soon permit sale of the game.
  • The listing disappeared before noon ET, only for CDPR to announce the game's return on June 21.

What they're saying: Last week, PlayStation boss Jim Ryan told Axios that the delisting "was a tough decision for us to make, but ultimately, we had to act in the interests of the PlayStation community, and not knowingly sell a game that might result in a bad experience for them."

  • A Sony PlayStation rep tells Axios that players should still expect to experience some issues with the game: "Users will continue to experience performance issues with the PS4 edition while CD Projekt Red continues to improve stability across all platforms. [PlayStation management] recommends playing the title on PS4 Pro or PS5 for the best experience.​”

Co-op games are having a moment

Many of the most exciting games announced at this year’s E3 have something in common: You can play them with other people.

Why it matters: A lot of the chatter about where video gaming is going involves either the scarcity of single-player games or the success of competitive multiplayer phenomena such as “Fortnite” and “Call of Duty: Warzone.”

Landlords mount legal challenge to Biden admin's new eviction moratorium

A group of landlords and real-estate companies issued a legal challenge on Wednesday night in a D.C. district court to the Biden administration's new national eviction moratorium.

Driving the news: The Alabama and Georgia Associations of Realtors' emergency motion argues that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's order Tuesday barring evictions for most of the U.S. through Oct. 3 exceeds the CDC's powers, according to a statement from the National Association of Realtors.

Alix Klineman and April Ross are guaranteed to earn at least an Olympic silver medal after defeating Switzerland 2-0 in the Tokyo Games on Thursday morning local time.

Of note: It's the latest chapter in an enduring partnership, driven by past failures and bound by future aspirations.
