The CyberPunk 2077 collapse continues and intensifies. New York Times released an extensive article on Saturday about the long production and many woes of CD Projekt Red’s latest title. The article is well written, thorough, and intended for those unfamiliar with the gaming industry. Check it out here. An interesting aspect of the situation brought up by the author is a possible class action lawsuit currently in the works.
“Lawyers and investors in Warsaw are circling the situation, contemplating a class-action lawsuit against the company”
On December 18th, Warsaw attorney and CDPR investor Mikołaj Orzechowski posted notification that he is working with other investors on a class-action lawsuit on the grounds of “misrepresentation in order to obtain financial benefits.” He is asking other investors interested in pursuing the case to contact him.
This suit would claim CD Projekt RED mislead investors on CyberPunk’s value to the company. The game’s development time and the cost was not worth the money made. Sales are taking a hit after both consoles began offering refunds. Even CDPR is now offering returns on both digital and physical copies.
We will continue to cover the drama behind this once projected Game of the Year as the story develops.
