CD Projekt Red is working to settle a class-action lawsuit over botched Cyberpunk 2077 launch

Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red has entered negotiations to resolve a class action lawsuit over the game’s botched launch.

According to court documents, a number of questions remain open about a possible settlement, including any requirements for class certification, the proposed allocation plan for the settlement fund, and how the settlement will be handled. In other words, it does not specify who is entitled to a settlement or how much those eligible parties can get.

The plaintiffs in the proceedings must next submit a preliminary consent to the settlement or an update of the settlement by January 13, 2022. In May, four lawsuits against the company were combined into one.

When it was released (which was almost exactly a year ago) Cyberpunk 2077 had a lot of glitches and ran pretty poorly on older consoles. It got so bad that Sony pulled the game off the PlayStation Store within a week. CDPR spent much of the year fixing things up with hotfixes and updates, and the game eventually returned to the PlayStation Store after more than six months. The studio has also postponed a scheduled update to optimize Cyberpunk 2077 for next-gen consoles into 2022.
