Uh-oh!

CD Projekt Red Could Face Trouble With Polish Trading Standards

Developer CD Projekt Red may be in further trouble if the company fails to meet certain consumer and trading standards in Poland, in regards to future updates to Cyberpunk 2077.

According to a report from Polish outlet Benchmark [via ComicBook], developer CD Projekt Red is under the watchful eye of Poland’s Office of Competition and Consumer Protection (UOKIK for short).

UOKIK is a Polish organisation that protects consumer interests in their country, perhaps similar to the likes of the Trading Standards here in the UK.

By now we all know of the troubles that have plagued CDPR following the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 and with future promises by the developer to fix the game it seems that the UOKIK will be watching closely to ensure that CDPR fulfils those promises.

If CDPR fails to meet promises to put Cyberpunk 2077 in an acceptable state across all platforms, the UOKIK might intervene and land the developer with hefty fines if standards are not met.

However it is worth keeping in mind that despite all the troubles that has followed CDPR, no fines have been issued as of yet by UOKIK and it’s likely that no fines will be given.

I like to give the benefit of the doubt, and following all the backlash that CDPR has received it would be insane of them to not fulfil promises to fix the game with updates.

That said, it’s not outside the realm of possibility that CDPR won’t fulfil promises and, if they don’t, I’m sure UOKIK might intervene.

Hopefully in an ideal world UOKIK will have no need to intervene and Cyberpunk 2077 will soon turn into the game that was promised and all will be good once more (hopefully).

Do you believe that the Polish Trading Standards agency should have already issued CD Projekt Red with fines for the launch state of Cyberpunk 2077? Let us know across our social media channels.
