4. Officially announce that Cyberpunk is in early access and cancel it for last gen.
Cyberpunk is unfinished. Come clean about it and admit more work needs to be done. De-release it, if possible or change it’s status to early access until everything is sorted and then say “okay, here it is” when it’s done.
Early access is for games that aren't content complete, as I understand it. Cyberpunk is. It's just buggy (supposedly, I've had no real problem on PC at all) and plays like crap on older consoles. I don't think putting it in "early access" would change that, nor do I think those machines will ever run it well. The game has an obvious floor even on PC and those HDDs, ancient processors and such will never run it well. It should have been a next-gen only game on console, as you say.
I don't really know what they can do about that, for console guys. At least MS and Sony are offering everyone refunds, which is the best anyone can do I suppose. According to Digital Foundry many games at the tail end of the 360 era ran like crap too, like Far Cry 3, and Ubisoft just ignored the complaints and went about their business and seem to have suffered no negative repercussions. Gamers have short memories when there's a new flash thing they want to play.
