Cyberpunk 2077 has been pulled from the PlayStation store and Sony will be issuing full refunds to anyone who purchased the game through their store, they announced last night.

While the game has bigger issues performing on now older generation consoles like PS4 and Xbox One, Sony is offering refunds to PS5 users as well.

Maybe we should’ve seen this from the get-go when the game triggered seizures in its players. Or when it was delayed four different times and forced through anyway. These were warning signs that this game wasn’t ready to be released to a general audience on every platform.

While CD Projekt Red is asking people to hold onto their copies and wait for patch updates to be rolled out in the coming months, many people are so turned off by the bugs, glitches, and constant crashes that they'd rather just get their money back.

It's painful to watch CD Projekt Red, the developer of the incredible Witcher series, publicly burn like this. Their developers were worked to the bone for years on this project by an increasingly impatient management that needed the game released when it clearly wasn't ready.

When you release an unfinished product of this magnitude, this is what happens. We'll likely see a polished version of this game down the road, but for now it's probably best to skip.
