The small flood of lawsuits against CD Projekt after the chaotic start of Cyberpunk 2077 merged into a single lawsuit last week and, according to CD Projekt, will be officially brought to court in less than a month.
Piotr Nielubowicz, CEO of CD Projekt, noted this at today’s annual general meeting and informed shareholders that many details of the case are still unclear. However, CD Projekt should have a better idea of the legal aspects once the lawsuit is brought to court in late June.
A Polish-English translator speaking for Nielubowicz explains that both the law firm and the lead plaintiff representing the combined class actions have been selected, but the “value of the potential claim” is currently unknown to CD Projekt.
Four lawsuits were merged into Nielubowicz’s aforementioned lawsuit, all of which were originally filed by US investors following the difficult start and subsequent $ 2.2 million refund campaign for the much-touted new release Cyberpunk 2077. When these cases surfaced earlier this year, CD Projekt had previously vowed to “take firm action to defend itself against” allegations that misled investors ahead of Cyberpunk 2077’s debut.
