The continuing saga of Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the big ups and downs. The long-awaited PS5 and Xbox Series X versions have been postponed to 2022. Although the state of the game has improved significantly in the past year, it is still far from excellent, and far from complete. Despite this, the impression of this game has changed drastically: Steam version users have received rave reviews, and they have actually been nominated for two game awards. (By the way, it didn’t win.)
The situation seems to have improved in other areas, especially the case where CD Projekt was sued for “false and/or misleading statements” regarding the playability of Cyberpunk 2077 on the previous generation console. The first lawsuit filed in December 2020 stated that CD Projekt CEO Adam Kaciński had stated that the game ran “very well” on PS4 and Xbox One consoles a few weeks before its release. , But it turns out that this statement is not very accurate. The initial sales of “Cyberpunk 2077” were very good, but CD Projekt’s stock price plummeted within a few weeks after its launch, due to errors and technical issues that forced Sony, Microsoft, and CD Projekt to provide refunds and take the game off the shelves. From the PlayStation Store. This lawsuit was merged with three other lawsuits into one in May 2021.
However, this legal action may soon bring a reasonably happy ending to all relevant personnel.The studio announced earlier this week that the proceedings in the case have been shelved because Negotiating a settlement instead. If all parties can reach an agreement, the settlement will be submitted to the court for approval.
Naturally, CD Projekt also pointed out that agreeing to the settlement does not mean that it is dealing with anything: “Negotiating a potential settlement should never be interpreted as the acceptance by the company or its management committee of any allegations expressed in the plaintiff’s court documents ,”it says. Fair enough, I think.
However, more important than solving the problem in court is that CD Projekt did not give up “Cyberpunk 2077.” The next major update is expected to arrive in the first quarter of 2022, after which we are expected to begin to see long-term-expired DLC and expansion.
