In the continuing saga of beleaguered RPG Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt RED has announced that it has taken receipt of a second class-action lawsuit, once again filed against the Polish developer/publisher on behalf of its own investors.
Speaking in an official regulatory notice, CDPR stated that the second civil class-action lawsuit was filed in a US District Court for the Central District of California. According to CDPR the lawsuit’s content “including its subject and scope” is similar to that of the initial suit, which was filed on December 24 by New York outfit Rosen Law Firm. The lawsuit does not specify a total if damages sought.
The aforementioned New York class-action suit was based upon the allegation that CDPR did not accurately disclose details that the PS4 and Xbox One editions of Cyberpunk 2077 were “virtually unplayable”, and that statements made to investors pre-launch were “materially false and misleading” which the Rosen firm alleges led to loss for the developer’s investors. Based on CDPR’s statement, it can be speculated that this second lawsuit contains similar allegations.
