Polish consumer protection body investigating Cyberpunk 2077

Poland's Office of Competition and Consumer Protection (UOKiK) is looking into CD Projekt and the launch of Cyberpunk 2077.

That's according to local publication Dziennik Gazeta Prawnaas spotted by GamesIndustry.biz – which said that the organisation had approached the game studio to see what went wrong with Cyberpunk 2077 and what is being done to fix it.

"We approached the entrepreneur to explain the problems with the game and the actions it has taken," UOKiK spokesperson Małgorzata Cieloch said, via Google Translate.

"We will check how the manufacturer is working on introducing corrections or solving difficulties that prevent the game from playing on different consoles, but also how it intends to act in relation to people who have submitted complaints and are dissatisfied with the purchase due to the inability to play the game on their equipment despite the manufacturer's earlier assurances."

Cyberpunk 2077 launched on December 10th and to date has sold more than 13 million copies. The game has come under fire, not least for the substandard quality of its PS4 and Xbox One editions. Since release, the game has lost 79 per cent of players on Steam.
