Following news that CD Projekt Red is again facing more unfortunate news with a class-action lawsuit, Valve‘s Gabe Newell has stepped in to express his sympathy for the battered game developer.

On top of mentioning that Cyberpunk 2077 itself is an amazing game that required a lot of talent of produce, Newell went on to say, “I have a lot of sympathy with a situation that every game developer finds themselves in. There are aspects of the game that are just brilliant, and it shows a tremendous amount of work — it’s unfair to throw stones at any other developer, because just getting something as complex and ambitious as that out the door is pretty amazing.”

This news also comes just a week after CD Projekt co-founder Marcin Iwiński uploaded a video explaining some of the hurdles that the team faced internally before the launch. In the video, he asks for forgiveness and takes responsibility for the rough launch.

In other gaming news, PlayStation 5 scalper shows off his 2,000 pre-ordered units.
