Cyberpunk 2077, smart working stopped due to the cyberattack

The wait for Cyberpunk 2077 patch 1.2 unfortunately ended with bad news from CD Projekt RED, with the development team announcing the postponement.

Originally expected by the end of the month of February, the update will reach the shores of Night City only in the second half of March. To cause a new delay in the roadmap of the Polish authors was the cyberattack suffered in early February, identified by CD Projekt RED as the main reason that led to the need to postpone the 1.2 patch of Cyberpunk 2077. On the effects of the hacker attack, the software house has not offered many details, which Jason Schreier has instead tried to investigate.

According to reports from the Bloomberg journalist, who cites anonymous sources close to CD Projekt, the criminal action would have had a very significant impact on development activities. In particular, the assault on the team's servers would have cut most of the employees engaged in smart working out of the system. The latter would still be the overwhelming majority, due to the persistence of the international health crisis. For a good two weeks, then the remote work would have effectively stopped. In addition, CD Projekt RED would ask many of its employees to send their hardware to the Warsaw office in order to check the systems for malaware. This is obviously not official information, but if confirmed it would amply explain the need to proceed with the postponement of the Cyberpunk 2077 patch 1.2 debut.

Cyberpunk 2077 – Developers Were Locked Out Of Work Computers Due To Cyber Attack

A new report shows more woes from the recent attack on the Polish developer.

Despite being a massive financial and sales success, the saga of Cyberpunk 2077 is something else. The game launched with major technical issues that developer CD Projekt RED has been trying to address with updates. Now, though, a new chapter of craziness is being written which will delay that further.

The game’s next major update, 1.2, was recently announced to be delayed due to a recent cyber attack. Well, it seems the impact of that is more far reaching than you’d expect. According to a new report from Bloomberg, developers from the company have been locked out of their workstations. Since CDPR is refusing to comply with ransom demands, they have frozen accounts in order to stop more compromising of personal information over the last two weeks. While it’s obviously the best course of action, it also seems that for many, it means that work on the game’s updates have largely stopped.

At the beginning of the year, the company outlined plans for updates and native versions for the PS5, Xbox Series X/S. With this situation, however, it seems that most likely will be pushed back.
