CD Projekt Red Promises "Vigorous Action" In Light Of Cyberpunk 2077 Lawsuit From Investors

According to the lawsuit from the New York-based firm, 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.”

“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 filing also references Sony's decision to remove the game from sale on its storefront and Microsoft's refund policy on Xbox.

Now, the developer has revealed its stance on the lawsuit via an official statement, noting that the suit "does not specify the quantity of damages sought.” 

“The Company will undertake vigorous action to defend itself against any such claims"

Considering how divisive the game's perspective was when it was first revealed, it'll be interesting to see if CDPR eventually adds a third-person mode.
