Less than three years later: CD Projekt has finally settled a lawsuit in which investors accused the studio of lying about the state of Cyberpunk 2077 at the time of its release

After a major update 2.0 and the Phantom Liberty add-on, the developers of Cyberpunk 2077 from the Polish CD Projekt RED have finally restored their reputation damaged by the game’s problematic launch and have now also settled a class action lawsuit against themselves and a group of investors.

Law firm Rosen Law accused CDPR management of lying about the deplorable condition of the console versions of Cyberpunk 2077. The class action lawsuit was filed in December 2020, and the studio filed a year later agreed with investors to waive claims, and in January 2023 the settlement agreement was provisionally approved by the court.

The day before, November 28th, CD Projekt reported, which has been informed by Rosen Law that the District Court for the Central District of California has entered an order finalizing the settlement agreement.

In the three years since Cyberpunk 2077’s release, CD Projekt RED has released a series of patches containing fixes and improvements to the game (including for PS4 and Xbox One versions), culminating in a massive Update 2.0 released in September 2023, shortly before the “Phantom Liberty” add-on, which was received with great enthusiasm.

Cyberpunk 2077 was released in December 2020 on PC (Steam, GOG, EGS), PS4, Xbox One and Google Stadia and reached PS5, Xbox Series X and S in February 2022. After patch 1.6 (September 2022), development of the game began on PS4 and Xbox One were stopped – the studio focused on PCs and current generation consoles.
