CD Projekt refunded around 30,000 Cyberpunk 2077 purchases

Polish games firm CD Projekt issued refunds for in the region of 30,000 copies of Cyberpunk 2077.

That's according to CFO Piotr Nielubowicz, who told investors – as reported by Seeking Alpha – that the company had given that 95 per cent of people their money back following the game's rather troubled release.

CD Projekt also revealed that by the end of 2020, Cyberpunk 2077 had shifted 13.7 million copies, meaning that refunds clock up to around 0.21 per cent of total sales.

"The past year was an especially busy period for us, culminating in the release of the largest project in the 26-year history of CD Projekt," president and joint CEO Adam Kiciński said.

"Owing to great effort on the part of the entire team, we managed to introduce a new franchise to the market. However, as for the release itself –clearly, not everything went according to plan. This was a huge lesson for us, one we will never forget –but I believe now is the time to look to the future. We remain ambitious and we are giving it our all to bring Cyberpunk to a level where everyone can fully enjoy the game, regardless of platform."
