CD Projekt Red has paid $1.85 million to settle another lawsuit over Cyberpunk 2077’s shaky launch.
According to GameSpot, CD Projekt Red will pay investors who purchased stock between January 16, 2020 and December 17, 2020 settlement administration costs, taxes, attorney’s fees, and other expenses.
Investors filed the class-action lawsuit in 2020, claiming that CD Projekt Red withheld information about the state of Cyberpunk 2077 from them after the game launched with several bugs that rendered the game unplayable for many, at least on console.
Following the game‘s release, several lawsuits were filed against CD Projekt Red, one of which was settled in December 2021 for the same $1.85 million figure.
Cyberpunk 2077 was riddled with bugs for months and was eventually removed from the PlayStation Store, only to return in June 2021. However, CD Projekt Red has since updated the game several times, resulting in a resurgence of its player-base and even Steam’s Labor of Love award earlier this month.
The biggest advancements for Cyberpunk 2077 arguably began in February 2022 with the release of the next-gen update, or Version 1.5 for PC players, which included several bug fixes and even free DLC.
This theme continued in September, when Edgerunners developer CD Projekt Red released an update to coincide with the release of the anime series (which itself was praised by fans and critics alike). It also revealed the Phantom Liberty expansion, which will be released this year, and added to the excitement by revealing that a sequel, codenamed Orion, is also in the works.
