Cyberpunk 2077 continues to attract the wrath of CD Projekt Red investors. A US lawsuit now accuses the Polish studio of lying about the game’s true performance on PS4 and Xbox One.
The launch of Cyberpunk 2077 on console is a complete fiasco. Riddled with bugs and visually disappointing, the game on PS4 and Xbox One has sparked a wave of discontent. Under pressure, Sony, Microsoft and Micromania agreed to fully refund players disappointed with the title. Sony even decided to remove Cypberpunk 2077 from PlayStation Store.
At the same time, CD Projekt Red is committed to correcting the situation thanks to a succession of fixes and updates. Despite the promises of the Polish studio, its share price continues to plunge. Worst : CD Projekt Red is the target of several lawsuits. Lawyers in Warsaw (Poland) accuse the studio of having made false statements about the performance of the console game in order to obtain financial benefits.

A few days later, US shareholders filed a class action lawsuit with a US judge. In a statement released by Ronsen, the law firm in charge of the appeal, CD Projekt Red is accused of having Lied about Cyberpunk 2077’s actual performance on console. In January 2020, the Polish studio said in particular that the game was playable on PS4 and Xbox One. “Cyberpunk 2077 was virtually unplayable on current generation Xbox or Playstation systems due to a huge number of bugs” advance the legal action.

According to the complaint, CD Projekt Red did everything to cover up the true state of Cyberpunk 2077 on PS4 and Xbox One until the release on the market. Ultimately, the false declarations of the Polish studio would have generated serious financial losses for the shareholders, Rosen believes. The firm therefore invites all shareholders to join the class action in the coming weeks. Other lawsuits of the same ilk are likely to emerge.
