A second degree lawsuit has been filed against Cyberpunk 2077 developer and publisher CD Projekt Red. This was raised by a law firm that represents the studio’s investors.
CD Projekt Red itself stated in a mandatory announcement that it has received a lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. Its content is the same as that it was presented at the end of last year. It was all about misleading investors regarding Cyberpunk 2077’s performance on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
The advertisement says the complaint does not reveal the extent of the damage suffered, making it unclear what investors are looking for. Aside from the damage, CDPR plans to “take vigorous action to defend itself against these types of claims.” This is the same response to the lawsuit brought by Rosen Law Firm in New York.
Cyberpunk 2077 wasn’t going smoothly. The implications of poor performance extend beyond just a few dissatisfied players. The game has even been pulled from the PlayStation Store, read here why this happens. In addition, the CDPR’s approach towards refunds is being investigated by the Polish Consumer Association.
Despite all this, Cyberpunk is CD Projekt’s commercial success. Despite the refunds, the game was sold 13 million times.
