CD Projekt Red Again Promises To Defend Itself Following Another Cyberpunk 2077 Lawsuit

In what feels like a hefty dose of deja-vu, Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt has been hit with another civil class action lawsuit, this time in California.

The firm, acting on the investors' behalf, is claiming damages due to the state of the game at launch, according to the developer's investor relations website (thanks, The Loadout).

The developer has maintained its stance from a prior suit, and CD Projekt "will undertake vigorous action to defend itself against it", again.

That suit, filed in late 2020 by Rosen Law Firm, claimed that the developer "failed to disclose that Cyberpunk 2077 was virtually unplayable on the current-generation Xbox or Playstation systems due to an enormous number of bugs.”

This led to the game being removed from sale on the PlayStation Store, while Microsoft began offering refunds, too.

“CD Projekt would suffer reputational and pecuniary harm; and as a result, defendants’ statements about its business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times,” the suit reads.

CD Projekt notes that "The complaint does not specify the quantity of damages sought".
