Gamers scammed out of major upcoming update – here’s how to get your money back

XBOX owners are furious after being scammed out of pre-ordering a major triple-A game.

Originally released in 2020, players have waited three years to redeem their codes.

The Special Edition console should come with the DLC.

In June 2020, a special edition Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox One X was announced with a set of Cyberpunk 2077 accessories.

Players could purchase a charging dock, storage expansion, and headset, all in the Cyberpunk 2077 theme.

The limited console came with a Cyberpunk 1TB Xbox One X, a Cyberpunk Xbox One controller, and download codes for Cyberpunk 2077 and the upcoming DLC.

The Phantom Liberty DLC starring Keanu Reeves and Idris Elba is finally ready for release September 26, 2023.

However, due to a snag, the announcement came as a shock to limited-edition console owners.

The upcoming DLC ​​will only be available for current generation consoles, i.e. Xbox Series X|S, PS5 and PC.

This means that Xbox One X Special Edition owners will not be able to play it on that console.

Thankfully, CD Projekt is hoping to put things right for those who bought the pricey console.

In a statement to Maxi Geekthe company hopes to compensate players for the DLC.

The quote reads: “Owners of the Xbox One X – Cyberpunk 2077 Limited Edition Bundle will receive a refund for the expansion in the form of Microsoft Store credits.”

The Microsoft Store credit is the same as the price of the DLC, which is £24.99 ($29.99).

The money goes straight into the player’s Xbox wallet and can be used to purchase other games.

How players can request their refund hasn’t been announced yet, but CD Projekt is expected to officially announce details of the program soon.
