CD Projekt Red reportedly under investigation for Cyberpunk 2077 release

Depending on how investigations go and the improvement of Cyberpunk 2077 CD Projekt RED will be attempting to avoid fines that could seize up to 10% of its annual earnings

Per the report, UOKiK could alternatively ask the developer to issue "digital bonuses" to those who bought the game for last-gen consoles.

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.

The warning comes shortly after Microsoft confirmed it was giving refunds to Cyberpunk 2077 with a no questions asked Xbox policy until further notice. He believes the fixes and patches coming from CD Projekt may not be enough to counter allegations of "unfair market practice".

Express Online has contacted CD Projekt for confirmation on the update's release date. But, UOKiK will also gauge the company's flexibility, especially how it reacts to past and future complaints from disgruntled gamers, namely those who request refunds.


Cyberpunk 2077 was subsequently pulled from the PlayStation Store, and remains suspended as of this writing.

However, this backseat patching might not be enough to cover the damages. Despite the maelstrom of bad press and poor player response surrounding Cyberpunk 2077 it still sold astronomically well, yet this fine would cut deeply into those profits. Developed by CD Projekt Red, the game has been plagued with glitches. CD Projek will produce the Red series. According to the Polish site benchmark.pl, the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection is looking into allegations that the game might be breaking industry standards.

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. Now, an important arm of the Polish government will probably audit CD Projekt Red for years to come.
