Cyberpunk 2077s launch has, to put it mildly, been a disaster from top to bottom - from repeated delays and miscommunications to unacceptable performance on consoles and a seemingly endless laundry list of bugs, AI issues and lack of promised features and polish.

Unfortunately for CD Projekt Red, rushing out patches and forking out for refunds is just the start of their apparent woes, as the company is now also facing class-action lawsuits from its own investors, according to the New York Times.

According to the Times, "Lawyers and Investors in Warsaw are circling the situation, contemplating a class-action lawsuit against the company." Mikołaj Orzechowski, a lawyer and also one of the investors in CD Projekt Red, is currently looking at "grounds for bringing a class action" against the developer, citing "misrepresentation" in order to gain funding.

New York company Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP  has also announced it is also investigating a "potential securities class action lawsuit against CD Projekt SA," urging other investors who have lost out due to the debacle to make contact.

Share prices in CD Projekt Red dropped dramatically following the disastrous launch, leading to a very bad time for the company, and one they may never fully recover from. Could Cyberpunk 2077 be the ET of the modern age?
