Cyberpunk 2077 developer sued for allegedly lying about game’s unfinished state in order to protect its stock price

Polish game-creator CD Projekt was hit with a class activity suit charging that the Warsaw-based company lied about the game’s incomplete state to secure its stock cost.

The suit, recorded Thursday in US District Court in Central California by the New York-based Rosen Law Firm, abrades CD Projekt for its as of late delivered Cyberpunk 2077.

The blockbuster game — which highlights Hollywood star Keanu Reeves in a noticeable job — has seen an unfortunate rollout, with gamers and analysts detailing that the product is essentially unplayable for some with current age PlayStation 4 and Xbox supports.

CD Projekt acted with “careless dismissal for reality” when building up its game, neglecting to educate the two speculators and clients that it would not be completely completed and playable for some gamers until at any rate February, legal counselors for Rosen said in an assertion.

The issues were apparently so extreme and inescapable that Sony had to pull it from its PlayStation Store, while Xbox producer Microsoft has offered discounts.

“[Investors] would not have bought the Company’s protections at the falsely expanded costs that they did, or by any stretch of the imagination,” had they thought about the game’s bug-baffled status, the claim states.

CD Projekt recently delivered an expression of remorse to gamers until further notice permitting them “to settle on a more educated choice” about their $60 buy.

The game’s disturbed turn out has sent CD Projekt’s offers down 40% since early December, when reports of the game’s apparently incomplete state started making waves seven days before its delivery.

CD Projekt said for the current week that it sold 13 million Cyberpunk 2077 duplicates between Dec. 10 and Dec. 20 — shy of the 16.4 million units experts had anticipated as interest for computer games skyrocket.
