When we say the hits just keep on coming for Cyberpunk 2077, we’re not talking about a Nomad with Gorilla Arms. The latest issues levied at CD Projekt Red further spells more trouble as a class action lawsuit is reportedly on the table from investors, while GOG warns players to limit their items, or lose their save games.
Whether you’re an investor or a player, it seems like trouble is brewing. In a recent New York Times article, it was noted that management often ran so far ahead of what development could deliver, the game would never live up to the hype they were selling. The article goes on to report of a post on polish site Bankier.pl from Mikolaj Orzechowski, an investor and lawyer, who cites the potential for a class action lawsuit due to:
The possibility of committing a crime with ar.t 286 CC . - misregulating in order to obtain a financial advantage

Unfortunately, that isn’t all of the bad news. GOG has also released a statement in regards to players losing their saved data due to corruption. The statement reads:
Cyberpunk 2077 - Saved data is damaged and cannot be loaded.
Unfortunately the save is damaged and can't be recovered.Please use an older save file to continue playing and try to keep a lower amount of items and crafting materials.If you have used the item duplication glitch, please load a save file not affected by it.The save file size limit might be increased in one of the future patches, but the corrupted files will remain that way.
There is a very small bright spot for Stadia players, though. The latest patch that recently rolled out across Xbox, Playstation and PC has finally made its way to Stadia.
Cyberpunk 2077’s launch has led to a ton of backlash, from investors, players and even their own developers. We hope that CD Projekt Red will be able to turn it all around and regain their reputation, as they’ve stated they plan to do, but it seems like it’s going to be an arduous journey from here.
