Cyberpunk 2077 made some history on multiple dimensions. Cyberpunk’s launch was, a bit, shall we say, bumpy.
Now, there are four class action lawsuits that are piling up, about the launch in particular.
This is mainly due to the controversy surrounding the poor performance of the game on last-gen consoles like the PS4 and the Xbox One. Also, the removal from the PlayStation store, which caused CD Projekt’s share price to plummet by 15% back in December.
Some lawsuits are from shareholders within the company, that are alleging that CD Projekt was misleading investors about the performance on some consoles, which incurred damages on some shareholders.
The first lawsuit, which was in December, was about how CD Projekt failed to disclose, or made misleading statements about the stability and performance of Cyberpunk 2077 on consoles.
In addition, it continues clearing up the fact that these issues cause harm, which led Sony to remove the game completely from the store, and other platforms offering full refunds for the game.
CD Project stated that the second lawsuit in January was more or less along the same lines as the December lawsuit.
Whatever the case might be though, Cyberpunk 2077 was quite successful in financial terms. There were at least thirteen million copies sold. Furthermore, the game has received a couple of updates in 2021, making it much more stable and fixing some game-breaking bugs.
