Investor sues Cyberpunk 2077 maker over false claims
Andrew Trampe, an investor in Cyberpunk 2077, has filed a lawsuit against CD Projekt on behalf of himself and other investors after it launched the game with serious bugs. The investors believe that the game was over-hyped with false and misleading statements that caused them to put money into the project.
Some issues that have plagued the game’s launch include buggy save files which have been fixed and poor performance on consoles which saw it delisted from the PlayStation Store.
In the lawsuit, Trampe highlights a statement from CD Projekt’s CEO Adam Kicinski who said:
“So, in terms of bugs, we are all aware of them. Of course, such a big game can’t be just bug free. That’s kind of obvious, but we believe that the level will be as low as to let games not see them.”
Trampe said that these statements were false and misleading because the company allegedly knew about the game’s defects but failed to disclose them.
At the end of the lawsuit, it says the investors are demanding a trial and will be seeking that the defendants pay damages to the investors and that they cover their attorneys’ fees, expert fees and other costs.
