A Polish regulator, the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection, has just opened up an investigation into CD Projekt Red over the current state of Cyberpunk 2077. Specifically, they are investigating into the dismal state that the console versions of the game has launched in.

This was first reported on by a local Polish newspaper Dziennik Gazeta Prawna (and relayed via PC Gamer). It was then confirmed to PC Gamer that the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection will indeed be keeping a close eye on CD Projekt's Red to improve the console release of Cyberpunk. Here is what a UOKiK spokesperson said to the website about the investigation.

"We ask the entrepreneur to explain the problems with the game and the actions taken by him. 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 complained and are dissatisfied with the purchase due to the inability to play the game on their equipment despite the manufacturer's previous assurances."
The main focus of UOKiK's investigation lies almost squarely on the base console versions of Cyberpunk 2077. As you may already know, those versions of the game launched in a less than dire state. The game was pulled from the PlayStation Store. There is also a class-action lawsuit against the game over these base console versions. Yes, the PC version of the game did fare quite a bit better, but that version of the game hasn't come under the same amount of fire that the other versions have.

Ultimately, if UOKiK finds that CD Projekt Red has not done enough to make the console versions more playable, they could be fined up to 10% of their annual revenue.
