Cyberpunk 2077’s class-action lawsuit has reached a settlement!

Don’t remember CD Projekt Red getting sued? I don’t blame you. Investors filed the suit against the dev back in 2020 – which somehow feels like yesterday and 10 years ago at the same time. Back then,  investors claimed that Cyberpunk 2077’s buggy launch state was hidden from them, thus causing them to lose money.

Now CD Projekt Red will pay out $1.85 million to plaintiffs. This sum covers “settlement administration costs, taxes, attorney’s fees” and more for any investor who purchased a CD Projekt Red stock between January 16, 2020 to December 17, 2020.

That is a TON of money, but on the brightside, at least now CD Projekt Red has another piece of Cyberpunk’s rough launch that they can put behind them. The game has been back on PlayStation for a while now, next-gen versions are out, tons of great updates and fixes have been issued and people love the Netflix anime; things are looking good. Even though the multiplayer component of the game was scrapped in order to focus on those fixes, Night City residents are still getting the Phantom Liberty expansion this year. This will be paid DLC, but CDPR has yet to announce a price.    

And while we’re on the subject of game prices, Dr. Serkan Toto of Kantan Games thinks the industry will see prices increase “across the board”. 

In an interview with, the analyst said that fans should expect price hikes for games, hardware, and subscriptions as studios attempt to make up for rising costs. Nintendo fans might be safe though, as Toto doesn’t believe its hardware prices are going north of where they are now.
