As part of the preparation for the February 8, , developer Sloclap offered a deluxe digital version of the game via the PlayStation Store that included early access to the title. If you ordered the package, the studio said you would have two days to play Sifu before its official release date.
However, when the early access period started earlier today, PlayStation 4 and PS5 owners found they couldn’t download the game. On a discovered by developer Sloclap acknowledged the issue and said he was working with Sony to quickly fix it.
“We are aware that there are issues that prevent downloading of Sifu via early access on PlayStation Store and we are sorry for the inconvenience,” the studio said. “We are reviewing this with PlayStation to get it fixed as soon as possible and will update you on the situation very soon.”
A few hours later, Sloclap shared the promised update, noting that Sony was actively investigating the issue. “We hope to resolve it soon,” the studio said at the time. At the time of this writing, Sony and Sloclap have yet to fix things. It certainly doesn’t look good for either party, but the studio has at least promised to do what it can to compensate its fans.
