Polish Office of Competition and Consumer Protection has said they're keeping a close watch of CD Projekt Red in relation to their handling of the whole Cyberpunk 2077 situation.

We know this looks like it's somehow linked to the class action lawsuit brought against CDPR by investors , and in some ways it is. Nevertheless, the focus here is on the customer, and consequently the studio's willingness to make right on their promises, and even their treatment of the disgruntled console players. 

Spokesperson of the Office Malgorzata Cieloch discussed the matter with Polish website Dziennik, which was kindly translated by our fellow scribes over at Exputer:

"We will check how the manufacturer is working on introducing corrections or solving difficulties that prevent the game from playing on different consoles, but also how it intends to act in relation to people who have submitted complaints and are dissatisfied with the purchase due to the inability to play the game on their equipment despite the manufacturer's earlier assurances."

Cieloch added that the Office will decide on the course of action once they've talked to CD Projekt Red, which means that Cyberpunk 2077's developers now have one more magnifying glass above their heads. 

Thankfully, CDPR have repeatedly stated that their intention is to make Cyberpunk 2077 into the game it was meant to be on all consoles, expressing hope that PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will be patient with them.

It's well worth noting that while all the current-gen drama has been unfolding, Cyberpunk 2077 players on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X have been calling the game a proper masterpiece. 

And we cannot help but notice that a similar drama happened with The Witcher 3, except it was PC players who were on the receiving end of false promises. The game has since been polished to perfection and became one of the most beloved games ever, with surprisingly few players recalling the drama. Here's to it happening again!
