A class action lawsuit against CD Projekt Red has been brought before the US District Court in California, alleging that it misled business partners and customers by making misleading statements about the status of the game prior to the release of Cyberpunk 2077. This is the second such action brought against the company. CD Projekt Red then emphasized again that it wanted to defend itself against the allegations with the greatest vehemence.
Otherwise, the situation for the former golden calf of the video game industry looks anything but rosy: Due to the fierce allegations, CD Projekt is also controlled by the Polish consumer protection authority in the attempts to limit the damage, which can impose a hefty fine on the company in an emergency. Journalist Jason Schreier also published an article about the development of Cyberpunk 2077 in mid-January 2021 (buy now € 59.49 ), in which CDPR employees who were involved in the project revealed, among other things, that the demo shown at E3 was a fake. CEO Adam Badowski then criticized Schreier on Twitter.
The co-founder and spokesman for the company Marcin Iwiński recently admitted in a video to fans that mistakes were made before and during the release of Cyberpunk 2077. He claimed he was fully responsible for the anger of the cheated buyers, but in the same video put the blame on his QA testers who allegedly were unable to detect the extent of the technical problems.
Iwiński did not address in his video that not only the console version of Cyberpunk 2077 was released with quirks, but that gamers also have to expect some bugs and technical inadequacies on the PC. Rather, he emphasized that his company has always set extremely high standards, promised openness and transparency towards gamers in the future and revealed the preliminary roadmap for the repair of the Cyberpunk 2077 brand.
