Cyberpunk 2077 is a sci-fi role-playing game that was released in 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Stadia. The game is set in a dystopian future, where players can explore the city of Night City, customize their character, and engage in various quests and activities.
The game is developed by CD Projekt Red, the studio behind the critically acclaimed The Witcher series. However, the game also faced many issues and controversies, such as bugs, glitches, crashes, and performance problems, especially on the console versions.
The game was also criticized for its misleading marketing, missing features, and poor quality assurance. The game was even removed from the PlayStation Store, and the developers offered refunds to the dissatisfied customers.
