Cyber­punk 2077 was one of the most-antic­i­pat­ed games of 2020, but has become one of the biggest con­tro­ver­sies in gam­ing his­to­ry. Devel­op­er CD Pro­jekt has acknowl­edged that the com­pa­ny is fac­ing a sec­ond class-action law­suit from a law firm rep­re­sent­ing its own investors. They are claim­ing the com­pa­ny mis­led them regard­ing the per­for­mance of the game on last-gen consoles.

In a reg­u­la­to­ry state­ment, CD Pro­jekt says the “con­tent of the claim, includ­ing its sub­ject and scope, is the same” as the first class-action law­suit the com­pa­ny acknowl­edged just a few weeks ago. That law­suit was filed by the New York-based Rosen Law Firm, which rep­re­sents the investors who claim the com­pa­ny lied to them about Cyber­punk 2077. CD Pro­jekt fur­ther says it will “under­take vig­or­ous action to defend itself against any such claims.” 

This sec­ond law­suit was filed in the Cen­tral Dis­trict of Cal­i­for­nia. Sev­er­al oth­er law firms have pub­licly announced that they’re fil­ing suits against CD Pro­jekt, includ­ing the Penn­syl­va­nia-based RM Law. 

Of course, this law­suit just adds fuel to already fever­ish fire sur­round­ing CD Pro­jekt since the release of Cyber­punk 2077. Recent­ly, the com­pa­ny’s co-founder issued a per­son­al state­ment regard­ing the state the game was released in.
