Cyberpunk 2077 got off to a bad start, infuriating investors, who complained afterward. This legal dispute has now been settled with a payment of millions.
Left with high hopes Cyberpunk 2077 movie In December 2020, but it was disastrous at times. The game had a number of issues, seemed far from complete and took a while to calm fans down and win them over again. Because of these circumstances, a lawsuit was filed against CD Projekt RED – and that has now been finally settled.
Rosen Law Firm filed the suit, and CD Projekt RED has now agreed to pay $1.85 million to settle the case. The focus has been on compensation payments for misleading statements by the developer regarding the actual state of Cyberpunk 2077 in the lead-up to publication.
The lawsuit resulted in potential damages of up to $11 million, so the settlement means CD Projekt RED is getting away with a fraction of that. Anyone who trades CD Projekt RED securities between January 16, 2020 and December 17, 2020 can benefit. $0.49 per piece can be claimed from the settlement payment.
Overall, there were originally four separate lawsuits related to Cyberpunk 2077, which were eventually merged into one. With the current settlement, the development studio can now fully focus on its actual core business again – hoping that stories like the one around the beginning of Cyberpunk 2077 won’t repeat themselves.
At the time, the sci-fi RPG not only had many bugs on the retail release, but was practically unplayable due to performance difficulties on last generation consoles. The game was later removed from the PlayStation Store and the creators have also given out refunds for game proceeds through several distribution channels.
