Cyberpunk developer CD Projekt Red could have to settle huge lawsuits for allegedly misleading investors.
Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red is facing a number of class-action lawsuits for their handling of the game's release.
The lawsuits in question will come from investors who are upset with how they were "misled" about the game's state.
Cyberpunk 2077 released with countless bugs and is barely playable on PS4 and Xbox One. This had led to refunds being given to many people who bought the game and the game being taken off of the PlayStation store.
Investors of the game were not expecting these huge problems and are not happy with their returns so far. Some have already outlined their intentions to sue developer CD Projekt Red.
Where Are the Cyberpunk 2077 Lawsuits Coming From?
The New York Times has found that Warsaw-based lawyer and CD Projekt Red investor Mikołaj Orzechowski plans to sue the developer.
The (translated) statement from his law firm accuses the developer of "misrepresentation in order to obtain financial benefits".
A New York based law firm is also weighing up a lawsuit and urges investors with financial losses to contact them. This is primarily because CD Projekt Red's stock prices have plummeted, following the unexpectedly disastrous launch.
These are the only two potential lawsuits at the time of writing. However, it would not be surprising if more law firms started putting together their own lawsuits.
How Will CD Projekt Red Deal With the Lawsuits?
The potential Cyberpunk 2077 lawsuits are another problem that CD Projekt Red doesn't need while it is already extremely busy. In addition to fixing bugs, they are also finishing the free upgrades for PS5 and Xbox Series X.
The poor performance of the game has led to a huge number of disappointed customers too. Luckily, there are a number of ways that PS4 and Xbox One players can get refunded.
Will CD Projekt Red be able to make Cyberpunk 2077 a success despite all of these unexpected problems occurring?
