Cyberpunk 2077 authors sued for lying about console versions

After releasing a low-quality version of Cyberpunk 2077 on the base Xbox One and PlayStation 4 models, CD Projekt SA faced legal action. 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 the management of CD Projekt did not disclose information that the game was “almost impossible to play” on consoles “due to a huge number of errors”, as a result of which Sony Interactive Entertainment removed the digital version of the project from the sale, and Microsoft and others sellers offered a refund for the purchase of Cyberpunk 2077.

“The defendants’ statements about their business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacking a reasonable basis at the time,” the firm said. 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 lawsuit 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: Misleading 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.
