Poland’s Office of Competition and Consumer Protection is keeping an eye on how the Cyberpunk situation is developing.
Cyberpunk 2077’s launch has been a major fiasco, especially with the game’s botched base console versions, and from it being delisted from the PlayStation Store to CD Projekt RED’s share prices tumbling to the company even being sued (which they plan on defending against with “vigorous action”), CDPR have certainly been having a rough go of it of late. As it turns out, things might get even worse for them in the future.
As reported by Polish newspaper Dziennik Gazeta Prawna (via GamesIndustry), Poland’s Office of Competition and Consumer Protection (UOKiK) is keeping an eye on how CD Projekt RED are going to rectify the issues persistent in Cyberpunk 2077 in the coming months.
“We will check how the manufacturer is working on the introduction of amendments or solution to difficulties preventing the game [to work] on different consoles, but also how it intends to act in relation to the persons who filed complaints and are dissatisfied with [their] purchase due to the inability to play games on owned equipment despite previous assurances [that it would],” UOKiK spokesperson Małgorzata Cieloch said in a statement.
Additionally, if CD Projekt RED should fail to address the issues with Cyberpunk 2077 with upcoming patches, the company might even be faced with monetary punishments, which could either be a 10% of their annual income being paid in fines, or stipulate that they have to allow refunds (or even both).
CD Projekt RED have major updates planned for Cyberpunk 2077, with one each coming this month and in February. The developer has said that these updates should ensure that the game becomes “playable” and “stable” on base PS4 and Xbox One consoles.
Cyberpunk 2077 is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia, with PS5 and Xbox Series X/S native ports due out this year.
