CD Projekt is already facing a class action lawsuit filed by the Rosen law firm on behalf of investors claiming federal securities law violations by making false claims about the game. This includes failing to alert consumers that Cyberpunk 2077 is “virtually non-playable” on last generation consoles.
Cyberpunk 2077 has been the subject of controversy. Even before its release, which was delayed three times, the Projekt Red developer CD made headlines to force employees to work overtime. Nevertheless, the end product – according to CD Projekt Red – was not refined for consoles of the last generation. Additionally, gamers have reported that the game can cause epileptic seizures, with many requesting a warning as well as a long-term solution to this problem. Because of this, Sony and Microsoft are now giving full refunds to those who request them, while PlayStation even pulled the game entirely from the PlayStation Store.
CD Projekt Red has apologized several times since the game was released on December 10, 2020. The last one arrived on January 13th. “We are determined to fix bugs and crashes and will continue to edit and improve the game through future updates, making sure you enjoy the game regardless of the platform,” the company wrote. “We’ll use this area to keep you updated on the advancement of Cyberpunk 2077, including information on updates and improvements, free DLC, and more.”
Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world action-adventure story set in Night City, a metropolis obsessed with power, glamor, and body modification. You play as V, a mercenary criminal looking for a unique implant that is the key to immortality. You can customize your character’s cyberware, skills, and play style, and explore a huge city where the choices you make shape history and the world around you.
Cyberpunk 2077 was developed by CD Projekt Red and is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia and PC.
