It is a pity that the console versions of Cyberpunk 2077 have had such a disappointing launch, especially as the title itself is really worthy of attention (at least on PCs, as the releases on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are a different story). Hopefully, the developers will be able to salvage their work and regain at least some of the lost trust. Despite the huge amount of bugs and the tragic optimization of the game, it is the latter task that may prove to be much more difficult of the two.
