Cyberpunk 2077 Developer Hit With Two Class Action Lawsuits Over “False and Misleading Statements”

Two law firms have brought legal action to CD Projekt RED over the botched Cyberpunk launch.

In spite of the strong sales Cyberpunk 2077 has enjoyed out the gate, the open world RPG’s launch has been a disastrous one for developer CD Projekt RED in several ways. The game has been at the receiving end of widespread criticism for its litany of technical issues, especially on base PS4 and Xbox One consoles. Not only has it been delisted from the PlayStation Store (with Microsoft also offering refunds to Xbox One players and CDPR themselves having offered limited refunds to retail purchasers), it’s also looked likely for a while that CD Projekt RED will be hit with a class action lawsuit. That, in fact, is exactly what’s ended up happening.

In fact, they have been hit with not one, but two class action lawsuits, from New York City’s Rosen Law Firm and Los Angeles’ The Schall Law Firm. Both firms, as you might guess, have alleged ” made false and misleading statements to the market.” The majority of their arguments lie in the nearly unplayable state the game launched in on base PS4 and Xbox One consoles, which is where a large number of Cyberpunk 2077’s playerbase and prospective consumers lie, which has led to the company’s stock plummeting and investors consequently losing money.

Before Cyberpunk 2077 launched, CD Projekt RED said in an investors call that the game’s performance was “surprisingly good” on the PS4 and Xbox One, and suggested that the game would not have many disruptive bugs. Both those things were very untrue, in retrospect. In fact, review aggregation site OpenCritic also has a warning on its Cyberpunk page that accuses CDPR of intentionally misleading consumers.

Cyberpunk 2077 is currently available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Stadia.
