Polish newspaper Dziennik Gazeta Prawna has reported that Poland’s Office of Competition and Consumer Protection (UOKiK) is monitoring CD Projekt RED’s progress on Cyberpunk 2077‘s patches, and could potentially slap the developer with a fine of up to 10 percent of its 2020 income.
A Benchmark.pl article translated by Reddit user MichaelThePlatypus claims that UOKiK contacted CD Projekt RED and demanded an explanation for the fiasco. The developer was asked what steps it has already taken, and plans to take to resolve the situation. The ultimate decision to fine CD Projekt RED will depend on a number of factors, including the studio’s rationalization for the problems and the way it will deal with client complaints.
According to the web site, it is a main improvement that CD Projekt RED definitely gained’t underestimate. Previously, the developer mentioned that it might “vigorously” defend itself towards a number of lawsuits filed within the United States.
CD Projekt RED isn’t merely dealing with backlash from gamers. Plenty of its traders expressed their displeasure with the scenario as a result of it induced the corporate’s share value to fall drastically, wiping out earnings for traders in addition to its personal founders.
Thus far, CD Projekt RED’s administration has failed to supply an evidence for his or her deceptive statements about Cyberpunk 2077‘s last-gen ports. The company went on record to claim that game runs “surprisingly well” on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, only to later admit that it “didn’t concentrate” to these variations. Cyberpunk 2077 was subsequently pulled from the PlayStation Store, and stays suspended as of this writing.
