Polish developer CD Projekt Red (CDPR) may have finally turned around the fate of its latest AAA release, Cyberpunk 2077, but it still has to pay the price for the game's botched launch. Two years after the disastrous launch of Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red has agreed to pay $1.85 million to plaintiffs to settle the class-action lawsuit from investors.
For those unaware, Rosen Law Firm filed a lawsuit back in December 2020 against CDPR because of Cyberpunk 2077's bug-infested launch and CDPR's lack of transparency about the game's performance on last-gen consoles up until its release. The game's launch was damaging for CDPR's investors, and the lawsuit is seeking compensation for the same.
As mentioned above, CDPR has finally agreed to settle the lawsuit by paying $1.85 million. According to the lawsuit document, the compensation money will be used to pay taxes, attorney's fees, class members, and more.
The document also reveals that the $1.85 million compensation represents only 16.8% of the estimated damage. A plaintiff consultant had estimated earlier that the damage cost could be up to $11 million. Since its launch, CDPR has focused on fixing Cyberpunk 2077's performance on all platforms. Unfortunately, while the technical improvements are game-changing, there's still a sour taste that's hard to compensate for.
Thankfully, it seems CDPR has learned its lesson and has decided to make the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 expansion Phantom Liberty exclusive to current-gen consoles and PC.
In other news, CDPR recently announced a sequel to Cyberpunk 2077, currently codenamed "Project Orion." Unfortunately, details on this sequel remain barebone as of this writing, though we know that the original Cyberpunk 2077 is relocating to Boston to work on this sequel.
Cyberpunk 2077 is now available on Windows PC, PlayStation 4|5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
