Lawsuits against ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ combined for a court case

Four class-action lawsuits filed against Cyberpunk 2077 have been combined for a court case involving CDPR’s 2020 game.

Upon its December launch, Cyberpunk 2077 faced adverse reactions across the globe due to faulty gameplay.

Following the vast number of complaints, several class-action lawsuits were filed against the title.

‘Cyberpunk 2077’: No relief yet for the CDPR release

During the exciting release last year, CP77 suffered a catastrophic response from the players. It was pretty inevitable as well, considering all the issues surrounding it.

Investors and other companies like Sony weren’t happy either with the ultimate product.

There were endless bugs along with AI problems. Even PC players couldn’t get through them despite ignoring all the negative word-of-mouth.

And thus, there were class-action lawsuits filed against Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt RED.

Four cases have been combined into one lawsuit to proceed further with the court case. Speaking of more reasons why then there are tons of them to dive into.

On PS4 and Xbox One, players saw a lot of difficulties in figuring out the NPCs. It used to fail to render of their faces.

The game also saw unexpected crashes in the middle of the missions and even during the startup!

Simply put, Cyberpunk 2077 was almost unplayable in most of the scenarios.

It also led to backlash from various major outlets and gaming stores such as PlayStation.

Following a terrible reception towards the CDPR title, Sony eventually decided to remove it from its PS store in December.

What’s next for the open-world title?

The current situation is challenging for CD Projekt RED as far as handling the aftermath of CP77‘s launch is concerned.

The open-world game didn’t turn out the way its Polish developer expected.

It had huge ambitions from it, after all.

But due to a constant delaying phase and pressure of missing its deadline, the team made a blunder.

Yes, the widespread anger of the fans has now come down in the last five months, following some significant updates. However, it’s still far from being perfect and needs a lot of refinement.

Several future DLCs might work out in its favor, though. And it will be interesting to see how it manages to do that.

Cyberpunk 2077 is now available for PC, PS4, Xbox One, Stadia. Versions for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S are still in development.

What are your thoughts on this game? Have you played it since its launch or not?

Do you think it can still achieve the goal of becoming a masterpiece?
