More events continue to be related to the problematic debut of Cyberpunk 2077, one of the most prominent games of 2020. Now, a fine may come from the Polish Competition Authority.
Cyberpunk 2077, published and developed by CD Projekt Red, was one of the most influential games of the last year, both in a positive and negative sense. This year, Cyberpunk 2077 will not fall off the agenda.
As you know, the developers apologized after the game’s problematic release, and then Sony removed the game from the PlayStation Store. Later, a lawsuit was filed for creating false expectations for the game. Now the Polish Competition and Consumer Protection Office (UOKiK), which we can call the Polish Competition Authority, can fine CD Projekt Red.
According to Malgorzata Cieloch and Dziennik Gazeta Prawna, one of the spokespersons of UOKiK, CD Projekt will be monitored in the upcoming period and check how the patches they promised are released. They will also help to hear the players’ problems properly.
If things do not proceed as CD Projekt promised, 10% of the company’s revenue will be deducted as a fine. A patch will be released this month and a patch will be released next month to fix the game. At least that’s how the company announced.
