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.
