Sony has put up a website, wherein customers can signup and submit their request for a full refund. Afterwards, the company will verify your purchase and would initiate the refund. The game development commenced in the year 2012 but and was scheduled to release on April 16th of this year. But after multiple rescheduling, the makers released Cyberpunk 2077 on December 10th, for multiple platforms like Windows 10, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Stadia.
Soon after the game went public, users started complaining about multiple issues which were especially evident on older Xbox and PlayStations. The performance on the base PS4 and Xbox One S could only deliver 30fps on an average. Besides the glitches, caused characters to behave weirdly, making it difficult to play even if one ignored the issues. The situations improved if you had the latest generation of consoles which lacked a dedicated version but had to make do with backwards compatibility from PS4 and Xbox One.

When it comes to PC, the game Cyberpunk 2077 played miles better but the requirements to play the game left medium level PCs high and dry. The team has since issued apologies and promised to deliver an update with bug fixes from January of 2021. In retrospect, this is the first time that the platform owner had to pull the plugs of a AAA game soon after launch. But we do have Batman Arkham Night which was pulled from Pcs due to issues found after the launch.
We hope the developers are able to fix the issues and come back strong as the game had potential and was hyped through the roof as it had great names behind it.
