The Polish market watchdog UOKiK has launched an investigation into CD Projekt Red, the (also Polish) maker of Cyberpunk 2077. That writes the newspaper Dziennik Gazeta Prawna.
The research should map out the problems surrounding it Cyberpunk 2077 are, what action has been taken to resolve them and how dissatisfied customers have been addressed.
If UOKiK concludes that CD Project Red has been misleading its content in the run-up to the game’s release, and if too little has been done to fix the issues, the company may face a fine. This can amount to 10 percent of the annual income.
The game was released in December but immediately received a lot of criticism from the press and players. The game was full of errors and was therefore not properly playable on the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. The developer would not have been clear about this in advance, so that customers did not know what state the game was in.
CD Projekt Red has announced that they will come up with updates this year to fix the errors, and players can also request a refund if they are dissatisfied. Warn in the Netherlands Media Markt, Game Mania at bol.com for disappointing performance of the game.
