Four class-action lawsuits filed in the US against CDPR have been consolidated into one. This is coming from the defendant itself, although the company didn’t say which of the law firms was appointed lead plaintiff.
This basically means that instead of several trials, CDPR is now looking at one massive court proceeding in which it will have to face its shareholders en-masse. The announcement didn’t specify when the proceeding is expected to start.
Interestingly, in the US, there have been at least five lawsuits filed in the US. Whatever happened to the fifth one we don’t know. It could have been dismissed or it could still be a separate thing.
The lawsuits against the Polish gaming giant started piling up in the wake of Cyberpunk 2077′s troubled release. The plaintiffs claimed that the studio execs knew they were about to ship “an unplayable, bug-ridden product on the current generation video game consoles” but concealed this information from the investors who, as a result, suffered damages.
