CD Projekt Red, the creator of Cyberpunk 2077, has agreed to settle a class-action lawsuit over the game’s botched launch.
According to court records, there are still a lot of unanswered concerns regarding any prospective settlement, including all class certification criteria, the proposed settlement money allocation strategy, and how the settlement would be handled. In other words, it’s unclear who will be entitled for any settlement funds and how much those eligible parties would get.
By January 13th, 2022, the plaintiffs in the lawsuit must provide a preliminary approval of the settlement or an update on its status. In May, four cases filed against the corporation were combined into one.
Cyberpunk 2077 had several bugs and played badly on older platforms when it was released (nearly precisely one year ago). The situation deteriorated to the point where Sony removed the game from the PlayStation Store within a week. After more than a year of working to address bugs with hotfixes and patches, CDPR finally got the game back on the PlayStation Store after more than six months.
In addition, the company has postponed a planned update to optimize Cyberpunk 2077 for next-generation platforms until 2022.
