A class action lawsuit was filed Thursday by the New York-based Rosen Law Firm against Cyberpunk 2077 publisher CD Projekt for allegedly violating federal securities laws, Polygon reports.

The suit, which was filed on behalf of investors who bought securities, such as stock, from January 16 to December 17, 2020, accuses CD Projekt of making "false and/or misleading statements" about Cyberpunk 2077, and failing to disclose that the game was "virtually unplayable" on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, due to its numerous bugs.

Riddled with glitches and a myriad of gameplay problems with the current generation consoles since its release two weeks ago, Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red issued an apology for the game's shortcomings, and promised to deliver updates and patches in the coming weeks.

"Second, we will fix bugs and crashes, and improve the overall experience," the statement read. "The first round of updates has just been released and the next one is coming with the next 7 days. Expect more, as we will update frequently whenever new improvements are ready."

The statement suggested gamers unsatisfied with their Cyberpunk 2077 experience should get a refund. Sony initially discouraged people from trying to get their money back, urging them to wait for the updates to drop because they wouldn't honor a refund request.

A few days later, Sony changed its tune, announcing that the company would offer a full refund to anyone who purchased Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store, while also removing the game from its library.
