Cyberpunk 2077 Developer Facing a Potential Lawsuit Over “Misrepresentation to Receive Financial Benefits”

The situation could soon go from bad to worse for CD Projekt RED.

The situation surrounding Cyberpunk 2077 and its troubled launch has been far more disastrous for CD Projekt RED than anyone could have expected just days ago. From a PSA warning on its OpenCritic nature warning players against intentional misrepresentation to Microsoft and even CD Projekt RED issuing full refunds for the game (along with a warning on the Microsoft store about the game’s poor performance on the Xbox One), to Sony flat-out delisting the game from the PlayStation Store until it gets fixed, the magnitude of the situation has been surprising to see (to the extent that CD Projekt RED’s founders have ended up loading large sums of money). Even CD Projekt RED’s own employees have been unhappy (and vocally so) with the company’s bosses and management.

Now, it seems like the situation might actually get worse for CD Projekt RED in the coming days. As spotted by a report on the NY Times, the company might have a lawsuit headed its way. Mikołaj Orzechowski, an attorney in Warsaw (who also claims to be an investor in CDPR) recently posted his intent to file a class action lawsuit against the company “with the notification of the possibility of committing a crime under Art. 286 of the Penal Code”, which covers “misrepresentation in order to obtain financial benefits.” Orzechowski has said that any who want to join in on the lawsuit are free to contact him.

Considering the fact that CD Projekt RED said not long before the game’s launch that it was in a “surprisingly good” state on the base PS4 and Xbox One, and that they said it in a call with investors of all things, legal action doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Don’t lie to your investors is the most fundamental rule of any business.

Cyberpunk 2077 is currently available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Stadia. You can read our PC and console reviews of the game through the links.
