CD Projekt Red continues to go through the ringer, as lawyers in Poland are considering a class action lawsuit against the studio over its rocky Cyberpunk 2077 launch.
According to a report from The New York Times released yesterday, lawyers and investors believe CD Projekt Red cited “misrepresentation in order to receive financial benefits” as grounds for a lawsuit. Sony’s recent decision to pull Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store is also a factor in the decision-making process.
“In connection with the recent events — and in particular the suspension of the sale of the Cyberpunk 2077 product, we are currently analyzing, together with the law firm’s team, the grounds for bringing a class action together with the notification of the possibility of committing a crime under Art. 286 of the Penal Code — misrepresentation in order to obtain financial benefits,” reads the statement.
To put it succinctly, Cyberpunk 2077 has had an incredibly rocky launch. The good news is CD Projekt Red recouped all development costs from the first day or two of sales.
Unfortunately, the company’s reputation took a significant hit as reports of performance issues and bugs surfaced. In particular, the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Cyberpunk 2077 has been reported as broken and nearly unplayable.
CD Projekt Red acknowledged the performance issues and will release patches to hopefully address them. Two patches in particular should improve things on the PS4 and Xbox One, though they won’t arrive until January and February. Until then, folks can either request refunds or hold out and hope for the best.
