Cyberpunk 2077 release has been something of a nightmare for its publisher CD Projekt Red. As not only some gamers want their money back, but some investors too. And have filed a class-action lawsuit against the developers claiming that CDPR has broken the law by not telling them what shape the game was in before its release.
“The plaintiffs call for the court to adjudicate whether the actions undertaken by the Company and members of its Management Board in connection with the release of Cyberpunk 2077 constituted a violation of federal laws, i.a. by misleading investors and, consequently, causing them to incur damages. The complaint does not specify the quantity of damages sought. The Company will undertake vigorous action to defend itself against any such claims.”
Due to the buggy and unfinished release of CyberPunk 2077 on PS4 and Xbox One, along with facing problems on older consoles (which caused Sony to pull the title from PlayStation Store) CDPR’s stock plummeting, ultimately prompting securities investors to file a class-action lawsuit on December 24. Claiming that they incurred losses because CDPR lied to them regarding the game’s state.
However, after all this, the developers are still committed to pushing updates until the game is fixed. With studio heads saying that “most of the reworking should be completed by February 2021”
