The now infamous hack and ransom of files and source code from CD PROJEKT RED has taken a new turn for the worse. Cyberpunk 2077 really just can’t catch a break. The troubled, but still good, sci-fi adventure has a ton of problems still, months after launch. The developer has been trying to get the game back on track, it’s not going well. CD PROJEKT RED has just announced that the upcoming Patch 1.2 for Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed.
CDPR has already been pumping out patches for the game, although there were some problems. The launch version of the game was obviously extremely problematic. Versions of the game on consoles were rather poor in terms of performance and visual quality. And then you could add to that all the nonsense that came later. The later patches even introduced a major bug that broke game progress.
Another patch was quickly issued to fix a major security issue that was affecting mods and DLLs for the game. And it turns out the bug may have played a big part. CDPR was later hacked in a major breach that led to a ransom involving source code for multiple games. Needless to say, but this has been disruptive, so they delayed the patch that was planned.
The team has been working on numerous changes and quality improvements for the game, to be included in Cyberpunk 2077 1.2. CDPR has been pushing out constant fixes since launch and there’s still a mountain of bugs to tackle. This latest patch will bring out a ton of QoL fixes as well.
The planned launch of Cyberpunk 2077 1.2 being pushed back was something pretty much everyone saw coming, given the nature of the issues. And it wasn’t just the hack-based nightmare that CD PROJEKT has been enduring and cleaning up after causing problems. The major hack was a huge problem and when added on top of the other issues, it’s just crazy.
