    Cyberpunk 2077 facing possible lawsuits from investors...

    So if it was not bad enough that Sony pulled the game off the Playstation marketplace, there are rumors floating around that the company might get sued big time over the game for not only misleading players but misleading investors. This is not good. I don't know all the details of these lawsuits and who is doing the suing but this can't end well if it is true.

    Why not? They didn't allow reviewers to review the console versions before release. That's scummy and misleading.

    I think the lawsuit is in Poland? Not sure, but that's what the video I watched implied. I consider class-action lawsuits and jumping to legal challenges to be an American thing so maybe it's originating from here. I could do the research and find out but I can't say that I care enough. Their games usually release as a broken mess & this time is no different. I don't know why their fans were expecting anything else. All of my takes on this subject are biased because I don't like CD Projekt or their games. They have (or rather, had) a reputation for being such a consumer-friendly company that I never understood. I think it comes from so many folks seeing CD Projekt act like a normal game developer alongside news about EA/Activision/Blizzard/Ubisoft and it led them to think that CD Projekt is a savior of some sort.

    They routinely release busted games then take years to fix them, show off misleading trailers to collect pre-orders and delay games that they knew full-well wouldn't be ready in time for the date that they were claiming. That's not even to mention the whole "crunch-time" debacle. I personally don't care if devs employ crunch-time tactics, but that's another point against them being the Jesus of game developers. There are a lot of devs that are way waaaaay worse than CD Projekt to be fair, I just wanted to argue against any of the recent news being surprising.

    People who were looking forward to this game got caught up in the hype and then their circle-jerk got BTFO. It was a learning experience for blind fans and hopefully for CD Projekt as well to stop doing this kind of shit.

    I mean not good for them, they are going to be in hot water. I think the process is fine and these people have every right to file against them.

    I was never overly hyped for the game but did intend on eventually getting it and after seeing the process and the lies they peddled out, I likely will never play the game based on principle. You don't do business this way.
