“We have asked the entrepreneur for an explanation for the problems with the game and what they have done about it. We will check how the developer is working on introducing patches and solving difficulties interfering with the playing of the game on various consoles, but also how they are going to act in relation to those who have filed complaints and are not satisfied with lack of possibility of running the games on their equipment, contrary to the declarations of the producer,” Małgorzata Cieloch, the spokeswoman of UOKiK told “Dziennik Gazeta Prawna” daily.

The UOKiK can fine a company in different ways, even as much as 10 percent of the annual income of the developer. However, the inquiry does not mean that CD Projekt will be punished at all.

Just after the premiere, players all over the world complained about the game containing a lot of bugs and problems with even running Cyberpunk 2077, especially on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles.

Sony, the producer of the PS4 has withdrawn the game from its online store and offered a full refund for those who bought the game and are not satisfied with its quality.

The plot of the futuristic game takes place in the fictional Night City ruled by corporations. The player takes the role of mercenary V. “Cyberpunk 2077” is another role-playing game produced by CD Projekt RED, after the immensely popular “The Witcher” series.
