Cyberpunk 2077 Developer CD Projekt Red has started negotiations to settle a class action lawsuit over the game’s failed launch.
There are still a number of outstanding questions regarding any potential settlement, according to court documents, including all of the group’s certification requirements, the proposed allocation plan for the settlement fund and how the settlement will be administered. . In other words, it’s unclear exactly who will be eligible for anything granted in a settlement or how much those eligible parties may receive.
Plaintiffs in the case must then file a preliminary approval of the settlement or an update to its status by January 13, 2022. Four lawsuits against the company were compiled into one in May.
Upon release (almost exactly one year ago), Cyberpunk 2077 had many issues and performed quite poorly on older consoles. Things were getting so bad that Sony pulled the game from PlayStation Store within a week. CDPR spent much of the year trying to fix things with fixes and updates, and the game finally returned to PlayStation Store after more than six months. The studio also pushed for a planned update optimizing Cyberpunk 2077 for new generation consoles until 2022.
