CD Projekt faces a second class-action lawsuit over Cyberpunk 2077

Firm says content, subject and scope is same as the first suit, reiterates it will "undertake vigorous action to defend itself"

CD Projekt has confirmed receipt of another class-action lawsuit from a law firm representing its own investors.

The Polish studio previously confirmed it was facing legal action from the New York-based Rosen Law Firm, which claims the company misled investors over Cyberpunk 2077 -- in particular, the state of the game on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Now a regulatory notice reveals a second lawsuit has been filed in the US District Court for the Central District of California.

CD Projekt says the "content of the claim, including its subject and scope, is the same" as the aforementioned class action.

As with the other case, CD Projekt notes the complaint "does not specify the quantity of damages sought" and adds that it will "undertake vigourous action to defend itself against any such claims."

The studio is also being investigated by Poland's Office of Competition and Consumer Protection. A Polish attorney previously said he was considering a suit against CD Projekt on behalf of investors.

The news follows the most recent apology over technical issues with the game, this time delivered via a video from co-founder Marcin Iwiński.

Earlier this week, a report emerged claiming that members of the development team believed Cyberpunk 2077 was not ready for a 2020 release -- something studio head Adam Badowski disputed.
