CD Projekt Red settles Cyberpunk 2077 launch lawsuit for $1.85 million

It's always very funny when Cyberpunk 2077 has very corporate problems.

CD Projekt appears to be wrapping up the various lawsuits filed by investors over the positively scrambled launch of Cyberpunk 2077 .

(I got tired of writing "botched," okay? It's "positively scrambled" today. Like eggs.)

As spotted by The Verge, CD Projekt has announced that it intends to settle its various investor lawsuits for a sum of $1.85 million, in exchange for the plaintiffs releasing all their claims against the company.

Though CD Projekt has had a somewhat rough year in regards to Cyberpunk 2077 sales (it's had to issue a lot of refunds), that $1.85 million figure isn't incredibly dramatic. The game's production budget was pegged at being over $316 million, and the company has already announced that it's recouped the production and marketing costs for the game.

A judge still needs to approve the settlement, but this small sum appears to have proven to be enough of a mea culpa for investors who felt burned by the poor launch. So they make a little extra money off this, and still get returns off of CD Projekt's consistently improving financial results.

All very cyberpunk indeed.
