Cyberpunk Maker CD Projekt Sued by Investors over fumbled Game Launch


The very much anticipated Cyberpunk 77 release was a disaster for everyone involved which resulted in a lawsuit being filed against the company behind Cyberpunk 77, CD Projekt. The investor claimed the company misled him about the game whose fumbled release(riddled with bugs) this month caused shares to dive.

Investor Andrew Trampe sued Thursday in federal court in Los Angeles and seeks to represent other investors who bought the company’s securities. The lawsuit states that, CD Projekt allegedly failed to convey that the game was “virtually unplayable on the current generation playstation(Playstation 4) and Xbox”  and instead marketed it as a success with a few issues that would go unnoticed. This resulted in Sony removing Cyberpunk 77 from the playstation store, and some companies offering full refunds, and GameStop is accepting returns, even if people opened the game, which goes against its typical policy.

However the game has still sold over 13 million copies since it's release making it one of the best games of 2020 even though most of those were pre-orders. The company has started releasing patch after patch which addresses some of the problems in-game.
