CD Projekt Red continues to dismiss Cyberpunk 2077’s disastrous launch

CD Projekt Red has announced a settlement in a class action lawsuit alleging that the publisher misled investors about the quality of Cyberpunk 2077 when it was released. Following the release of Cyberpunk 2077 in 2020, CD Projekt had to deal with a number of major issues. Not only was the company focused on improving the state of Cyberpunk 2077, but it was also facing significant backlash from both players and investors due to the game’s less-than-ideal state. Now, nearly three years later, CD Projekt Red is putting the situation behind it.

In total, CD Projekt Red confirmed this week that it will pay $1.85 million as part of the Cyberpunk 2077 settlement. The lawsuit was filed in December 2020, just weeks after Cyberpunk 2077 was released. Rosen Law Firm filed the suit in order to “recover damages” for CD Projekt Red’s investors as a result of Cyberpunk 2077 being “virtually unplayable” on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms. CD Projekt Red’s settlement has been in the works for about two years, with the terms first agreed to in December 2021.

With this lawsuit officially dropped, CD Projekt Red can seemingly put an end to all matters concerning Cyberpunk 2077 and its disastrous launch. CD Projekt Red has spent the better part of the last three years attempting to repair its reputation after disappointing so many fans in 2020. With 2023 now in the books, the publisher has largely accomplished this by significantly improving the core of Cyberpunk 2077 while also releasing the game’s acclaimed Phantom Liberty expansion. Moving forward, CDPR will look to create a sequel to Cyberpunk while also working on a slew of other Witcher-related projects.
