Cyberpunk 2077 Developers to Settle Class-Action Lawsuit for $1.85 Million

CD Projekt Red have agreed to pay investors for damages caused by the buggy launch state of Cyberpunk 2077.

Cyberpunk 2077 developers CD Projekt Red have reached a settlement in a class-action lawsuit filed by investors. The studio must pay $1.85 million to plaintiffs in the case.

The studio was slammed with a class-action lawsuit by investors following the troubled launch of Cyberpunk 2077 in December 2020. The suit claimed that certain stockholders had incurred financial damages as a result of the game’s technical problems and buggy release state.

CD Projekt Red will settle the lawsuit for a hefty $1.85 million, which will go towards settlement costs as well as paying eligible class members, who are defined in this case as those who traded in CD Projekt Red stock between January 16, 2020 through December 17, 2020, according to the settlement.

The state of Cyberpunk 2077 has improved considerably since launch due to a dedicated effort from the developers to squash its many bugs. Although the game won’t be receiving a multiplayer component as was initially planned, Cyberpunk 2077 will receive one final expansion in the form of the Phantom Liberty DLC. The expansion is due out in 2023 and will feature Idris Elba, as was revealed in a new trailer during The Game Awards 2022.
