Following the release of the low-quality version of Cyberpunk 2077 on base Xbox One and PlayStation 4 models, CD Projekt S.A. faced legal proceedings. Law firm Rosen announced a class action lawsuit against the developer, claiming executives lied to investors about the status of the project on consoles.
The lawsuit alleges that CD Projekt’s management did not disclose information that the game “Almost impossible to play” on consoles “Due to a huge number of errors”, as a result of which Sony Interactive Entertainment has withdrawn the digital version of the project from sale, and Microsoft and other sellers have offered a refund for the purchase of Cyberpunk 2077.
“The statements of the defendants about their business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and / or lacking a reasonable basis at the relevant time.”, – said the firm. The lawsuit alleges that when truthful details emerged on the market, investors suffered losses.
Rosen currently does not have a lead plaintiff in the case, and the firm is asking CD Projekt shareholders interested in participating in the proceedings to complete an online form.
Rosen’s claim in the US may not be the only such case that CD Projekt will face, as Poland is also considering filing a complaint against a company on suspicion of violating Article 286 of the Criminal Code: Misrepresentation for Financial Benefit.
Cyberpunk 2077 was released on December 10 on PC, Xbox One and PS4. Versions for next-generation consoles will be available later.
