CD Projekt just can’t seem to catch a break. It’s no secret that their latest game, Cyberpunk 2077 had a rough launch. At its core, the game might be a great title. But many players encountered game-breaking bugs and performance issues. This is especially true on past-gen consoles. As a result, the Polish game development company got sued by their own investors.

Earlier reports suggested that investors might sue CD Projekt for misleading them about the game’s quality. Now it seems the reports are true. CD Projekt will now be fighting two class-action lawsuits. These lawsuits are brought by NYC-based Rosen Law Firm and LA-based The Schall Law Firm. They claim that the developer misled its investors, which resulted in their clients losing money.

Both class-action lawsuits will only cover investors that purchased stock in CD Projekt from January 16, 2020, to December 17, 2020. Investors that fall in this category can join class-action lawsuits by February 22, 2021. They will have to visit the official website of Rosen Law Firm or The Schall Law Firm.

While developers have been working hard these past few weeks, some annoying issues, like horrible police and NPC AI, persist. Cyberpunk 2077 had so many technical problems. Thus, the developer had to offer unconditional refunds to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players. While Sony just outright removed the game from their PlayStation Store.

CD Projekt promised two major updates, one in January and another in February. They said that the game will be in much better shape after these updates. So, if you are one of the few people who are holding off on playing the game (like me), then we recommend that you wait for those patches to go live first.

It has not been all bad for the Polish company, though. They recently announced that despite all these issues, Cyberpunk 2077 sold more than 13 million copies. It’s obvious that they revealed this information to convince their investors not to sue. Yet it looks like that play didn’t work.
