Cyberpunk 2077 Delayed Major Patch Reportedly Happened Due to Work PCs Getting Locked Out

According a new report, the reason for the delay of patch 1.2 release of controversial video game Cyberpunk 2077 was due to result of the recent cyberattack.

The report came from media outlet Bloomberg stating that after CD Projekt Red suffered its recent cyberattack, developers have been locked out of their work PCs. This has happened for the past two weeks apparently.

Sources state that the developers could not log into CDPR’s private network, which meant they were not able to gain access to certain tools that are needed for developing patches and improvements to the game. Most of the team members were affected since they are working from home. The people from the office were not affected because they could directly gain access to the tools right away.

CDPR has also asked their developers to send their work PCs to the office so that the IT personnel could check them up for malware or other malicious stuff that could harm the company. This did not do anything at all.

Expect the delay to be longer this time as CDPR will be looking for a workaround for this issue.

Cyberpunk 2077 is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Xbox Series X/S and PS5 versions might be released later this year or later depending on how things go.
