The release of CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077 has resulted in what was quickly becoming inevitable: a class action lawsuit.

But what did CDPR know and when did they know it?

Why is the filed complaint not likely to be indicative of what CDPR is really facing?

And just why are lawyers always in such a hurry to file these kind of actions anyway? (Hint: The answer is 'money'.)

Let's dive in.

Yeah, that's a 'BINGO'...in Virtual Legality.
