In a recent press release, CD Projekt Group confirms that four class action lawsuits have been filed against the company in regards to possible securities fraud. These lawsuits have been combined into one and a single lead plaintiff has been appointed, CD Projekt's counsel has said.

"In relation to current reports no. 68/2020 of 25 December 2020 and 4.2021 of 15 January 2021, in order to provide an update regarding class action lawsuits filed by law firms on behalf of a group of holders of US securities traded under the ticker symbols "OTGLY" and "OTGLF" and based on shares of CD PROJEKT S.A. with a registered office in Warsaw (hereinafter referred to as "the Company"), the Management Board of the Company hereby informs that, according to information obtained from a law firm cooperating with the Company, the court has consolidated the lawsuits and appointed a lead plaintiff. Following this consolidation, all four lawsuits will be subject to potential common court proceedings."

As of January 2021, thirteen law firms had filed class action lawsuits against CD Projekt Group. Only four of them actually went to court.

The lawsuits allege CD Projekt of securities fraud for willfully hiding Cyberpunk 2077's disastrous performance on PS4 and Xbox One, which led to refunds and the game being pulled from the PlayStation Store. CD Projekt stock nosedived because of the controversy and investors were materially impacted from the losses.

The games-maker recently reported record earnings of over 1.6 billion PLN during Cyberpunk 2077's launch window, complete with 13.7 million copies sold.

In December 2020, CD Projekt Group said it would stand up to the allegations:

"The Company will undertake vigorous action to defend itself against any such claims."
