Cyberpunk 2077's issues have drawn investigation from the Polish government

They could ask the developer to issue "digital bonuses" in place of the fine, but what those bonuses could be and how they'd work outside of Poland remains a mystery. Due to the quality issues of Cyberpunk 2077, Poland's Office of Competition and Consumer Protection (UOKiK) has opened an investigation into CD Projekt RED that will continue into observing improvement of the game for the foreseeable future. It would seem that while the investigation will cover Cyberpunk 2077 in all forms, it will also focus more heavily on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, which were particularly issue-laden. 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. Players who purchased the game on last-gen were offered refunds by Microsoft, Sony, and CD Projekt Red.

It is not all bad news for CD Projekt Red, the developers of Cyberpunk 2077.

However, this backseat patching might not be enough to cover the damages. An analysis from a lawyer familiar with proceedings indicated that, even if CDPR provided refunds in good faith and fixed the game promptly it may not absolve CDPR of wrong doing and they could be fined up to 10% of their income, or require they refund part of the sale price of the game.

The February update is also likely to coincide with the release of the first batch of free Cyberpunk 2077 DLC.

UOKiK will await CD Projekt's explanation, and then decide on next steps. CD Projek will produce the Red series. Polish business newspaper Dziennik Gazeta Prawna reports the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection is looking into the shaky and tumultuous launch surrounding Cyberpunk 2077.

Cyberpunk 2077 lets the players venture as a megalopolis in the Night City, an outlaw searching for the key to immortality. Once, the company was held in such high regard that Poland's Prime Minister gave President Obama The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings as a present.
