According to the latest reports, CD Projekt have confirmed receipt of another class-action lawsuit from a law firm representing its clients. This is a second class-action lawsuit that CD Projekt are facing regarding Cyberpunk 2077.
Ever since Cyberpunk 2077, things are not looking great for the developer CD Projekt Red. Shortly after the buggy release, the Polish studio confirmed they are facing legal action from the New York-based Rosen Law Firm, which claims the company misled investors over Cyberpunk 2077 - in particular, the state of the game on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
And it seems this is just a start of legal action blizzard that CD Projekt might face in the coming weeks and months. According to a report from gamesindustry.biz , "CD Projekt has confirmed receipt of another class-action lawsuit from a law firm representing its own investors."
A regulatory notice confirms a second lawsuit has been filed in the US District Court for the Central District of California. CD Projekt says the "content of the claim, including its subject and scope, is the same" as the aforementioned class action.
Once again, CD Projekt made it clear they will "undertake vigorous action to defend itself against any such claims." It's also worth mentioning that the complaint "does not specify the quantity of damages sought"
In addition to this lawsuit, CD Projekt are being investigated by Poland's Office of Competition and Consumer Protection. It's safe to say that this is a grim period for the beloved studio, despite critical acclaim that Cyberpunk 2077 received.
Recently, CD Projekt co-founder Marcin Iwinski released a five-minute apology video to players, where he also reiterated the studio's will to fix the issues and make the game playable on all platforms.
