Well, it doesn't get more damning than this. Sony went ahead and pulled Cyberpunk 2077 off of PlayStation Store, offering full refunds to players who are interested.

"SIE strives to ensure a high level of customer satisfaction, therefore we will begin to offer a full refund for all gamers who have purchased Cyberpunk 2077 via PlayStation Store.  SIE will also be removing Cyberpunk 2077 from PlayStation Store until further notice", the company wrote in the official statement. 

Your refund will be processed the minute it's confirmed you bought Cyberpunk 2077 via PlayStation Store.

Sony's statement is pretty brief but there's no doubt as to the intent behind the move - for PlayStation 4 players, Cyberpunk 2077 has turned into a proper disappointment. Therefore it's got no business on the Store. 

CDPR have been openly hoping that the players will give them a chance and wait for upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 updates, rather than refund the game altogether. Now, however, it looks like they'll have to persuade Sony before they are allowed onto the platform. 

The company ultimately conceded that the focus on PC and next-gen consoles took away from current-gen consoles. Unfortunately, going through several delays resulted in a rush to roll Cyberpunk 2077 out the door, ignoring the signs for some of the older hardware. 

And this cost them a pretty penny, mind you, because PlayStation 4 is still a very lucrative platform.

CDPR's stock has continued to drop in the wake of Cyberpunk 2077's shambolic Xbox One and PlayStation 4 launch, as investors raise questions over the game's ongoing support, or more precisely, CDPR's capability to do so in the future.
