CD Projekt Red Will Be Penalized Upon Failure to Fix Cyberpunk 2077

CD Projekt Red faces another stream of pressure

Despite doing exceptionally well sales-wise on Steam for these past couple of weeks, Cyberpunk 2077 is an exacerbated mess on previous-gen consoles and on next-gen as well for some. This highly anticipated title couldn’t truly live up to its name, and even drove many to ask for a refund.

Amidst all this, the game is a masterpiece experience for many who are playing it on higher-end PCs and the PlayStation 5. Nevertheless, it’s still downright unplayable for a horde of people, and now the Polish Office of Competition and Consumer Protection (UOKiK) has stepped onto the scene, according to Dziennik – a Polish publication website.

UOKiK’s spokesperson Małgorzata Cieloch has said that the company will keenly involve itself in the efforts made to resolve Cyberpunk 2077’s current status. Moreover, CD Projekt Red’s responses to people’s complaints and distress will also be monitored.

If in the worst-case scenario that the makers of Cyberpunk 2077 cannot deliver in due time, the president of Office of Competition and Consumer Protection (UOKiK) will impose a fine that may go as up as 10% of the company’s last year’s income. In addition to that, the company may also have to compensate its consumers in the form of DLC’s, real-life gadgets, or by offering a full refund.

Things aren’t looking for Cyberpunk’s developer, not at all. In recent times, the company’s stock also dropped significantly, and investors took to the US’s court for filing a lawsuit against them. Now, this latest pressure is bound to stir up stress even more.

Looking on the other side, the broad consensus says that this might mean an early fix for Cyberpunk 2077. Higher authorities may cause the developer to shift gears with the patches and fixes, and the game might become playable sooner than we think.

What do you make of all this? Let us know down in the comments below.
