CD Projekt RED Might Face a Big Fine After Polish Consumer Protection Office Investigates Cyberpunk 2077


Poland’s Office of Competition and Consumer Protection is currently looking into game studio CD Projekt RED after the controversial launch of Cyberpunk 2077.

The Polish government office is current looking into the situation and is checking up on the progress on the promised patches that CD Projekt RED revealed a while back. They want to know of these patches will make the console versions work as intended.

UOKiK’s Malgorzata Cieloch stated:

We will check how the manufacturer is working on introducing corrections or solving difficulties that prevent the game from playing on different consoles, but also how it intends to act in relation to people who have complained and are dissatisfied with the purchase due to the inability to play the game on their equipment despite the manufacturer’s previous assurances.

If CDPR fails to deliver with the patches, UOKiK will fine them. It will be up to 10 percent of its annual revenue. This might not be a big of a penalty, but it will damage their reputation.

Cyberpunk 2077 is now available on PC, PlayStation 4 (physical), and Xbox One. Xbox Series X/S and PS5 versions are coming later on.
