CD Projekt Red Pays Just $1.85 Million To Settle ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ Lawsuit

Developer CD Projekt has reportedly agreed to pay $1,850,000 to settle an investor lawsuit over Cyberpunk 2077’s buggy launch, The Verge reports. That’s a pretty small figure besides its reported development budget of $316 million and the fact that it was an instant hit last year with eight million pre-orders. The settlement is still preliminary and must be approved by a court.

The lawsuit, in fact, consisted of four separate actions combined into one, filed by shareholders alleging the company misled them about financial performance. However, it is not clear why the settlement was relatively low. Shares of CD Projekt are down 54 percent since the game’s release, and analysts have significantly lowered sales forecasts for Cyberpunk 2077, Bloomberg reported.

Additionally, CD Projekt has postponed the highly anticipated next-gen console updates for Cyberpunk 2077 and Witcher 3 for late 2021 to Q1 2022. “Apologies for the long wait, but we wanted to make it right,” the company said. released a Cyberpunk DLC in August, but it only added a few cosmetic items and a car.
