Now even the Polish government is allegedly investigating Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077 is available on PC Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S PS4, PS5, and Google Stadia.

If Poland's Office of Competition and Consumer Protection decides CD Projekt is guilty of unfair market practice and deceit they will likely fine the company 10% of its annual income from past year.

This CD is not all bad news for Prozac Red, the developers of Cyberpunk 2077. According to the Polish site, the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection is looking into allegations that the game might be breaking industry standards.

"We know that the developers of CD Projekt Red have worked hard to deliver Cyberpunk under extremely difficult circumstances", Microsoft told Eurogamer in a statement.

The warning comes shortly after Microsoft confirmed it was giving refunds to Cyberpunk 2077 with a no questions asked Xbox policy until further notice.

"We are asking the company for explanation regarding problems with the game and actions taken by them".

"We will check how the manufacturer is working on the introduction of amendments or solution to difficulties preventing the game [to work] on different consoles, but also how it intends to act in relation to the persons who filed complaints and are dissatisfied with [their] purchase due to the inability to play games on owned equipment despite previous assurances [that it would]".

Indeed, Cyberpunk 2077's launch on previous generation systems PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were so problematic that Sony was forced to remove it from the PlayStation store, many storefronts have offered refund solutions on the game, and a class-action lawsuit is now being formed on behalf of CD Projekt's investors.

The February update is also likely to coincide with the release of the first batch of free Cyberpunk 2077 DLC. UOKiK will ask the studio for a patch roadmap and will check in from time to time to ensure CD Projekt Red is sticking to the plan. It will remain to be seen if it can.
