CD Projekt Red is to face its second lawsuit following the troubles that have plagued Cyberpunk 2077 since it launched in December of last year.
This will be the second class-action lawsuit filed against CD Projekt Red, with the latest coming from the New York-based Rosen Law Firm, representing the studio’s investors.
Back in December just over a week after Cyberpunk 2077 had launched, CDPR was already being faced with lawsuits from investors. This latest development just adds to the studio’s woes.
According to IGN, this second class-action lawsuit is said to be for the same reasons as the previous case from December. It’s based upon the notion that investors feel misled over the quality of Cyberpunk 2077, in particular for the base versions on PS4 and Xbox One.
While we do not know the amount in financial damages that the investors seek, CDPR will of course fight back as the company intends to “undertake vigorous action to defend itself against any such claims.”
Last week CD Projekt Red co-founder Marcin Iwiński issued a five-minute apology video addressing the game’s launch and the studio’s future plans to fix the game.
While I’m sure that the apology video had intentions of damage limitation, matters only seemed to have gotten worse for CDPR, especially following a damning report from Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier.
However in somewhat positive related news, an awesome new mod has been released for PC which gives Cyberpunk 2077 snazzy Borderlands inspired visuals.
Do you feel misled by CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077, and do you think this lawsuit is justified?
