Cyberpunk 2077's Launch and Ongoing Fixes Investigated By Consumer Protection Agency

This does kind of make sense given that two of the biggest Cyberpunk 2077 updates were released on the two Fridays directly following the game's release.

Things were so bad on last-gen consoles that Sony pulled the game from PSN, while CD Projekt has agreed to issue refunds.

IGN has also confirmed this news by tweeting about the collaboration between CD Projek Red and Studio Trigger. Now the Polish government is stepping in to put out this fire. The Polish game developer now faces an investigation from Poland's consumer protection agency. It would seem that while the investigation will cover Cyberpunk 2077 in all forms, it will also focus more heavily on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, which were particularly issue-laden.

According to the website, this is a major development that CD Projekt RED certainly won't underestimate. To date, we have granted refunds to the vast majority of customers who have requested them.

However, this backseat patching might not be enough to cover the damages. In his statement, he said, "We are thrilled to see Trigger working with CD Anticipated Red, a new story set in the much-awaited Cyberpunk 2077 world". For example, the article cited rumors that the game was poorly optimized as late as "early 2020", despite CD Projekt Red's claims to the contrary. Anyone who breached the agreement (by doing something as small as posting non-canned footage) could have been fined up to $27,000.

Dziennik Gazeta Prawna reports that UOKiK, Poland's Office of Competition and Consumer Protection is looking into "confusion" around the game's launch, and has asked CD Projekt Red for an explanation into what occurred.

It appears their woes have yet to cease, because Poland's Office of Competition and Consumer Protection has chose to look into the whole ordeal surrounding Cyberpunk 2077's launch, and if they don't like what they find CD Projekt could be hit with a hefty fine. How far the mighty have fallen.
