CDPR states it will defend itself 'vigorously' against Cyberpunk 2077 class action lawsuit


The Cyberpunk saga continues...

CD Projekt RED has stated that it will "vigorously" defend itself against a class action lawsuit, recently filed against the Polish developer/publisher in the wake of Cyberpunk 2077's less-than-stellar launch.

As reported by Bloomberg, New York's Rosen Law Firm filed suit December 24, alleging that CDPR misled its investors in regards to the quality of the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the highly anticipated RPG. The suit states that CDPR did not accurately disclose details that the last-gen edition of Cyberpunk 2077 was "virtually unplayable" and that the developer's statements were "materially false and misleading," which Rosen alleges led to damages for CDPR's investors.

The suit asks the court to ascertain whether CDPR intentionally hid the PS4/Xbox One edition's performance and quality from the company's investors and shareholders. Whether there is any actual evidence of this remains to be seen, though many have raised eyebrows at CDPR's decision to only supply PC review codes to the press. The lawsuit itself reportedly contains errors, which may also hamper chances at a successful trial.

Cyberpunk 2077 launched December 10 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One after a development and hype cycle that lasted some seven years. However, in light of the poor performance of the action-packed adventure on PS4 and Xbox One, CDPR was forced to offer refunds for console sales, with Sony pulling the title from its PlayStation Store entirely. Despite the controversial launch, Cyberpunk 2077 has still sold somewhere in the region of 13 million copies.
