CD Projekt Hack delays Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.2

From Cyberpunk 2077: "While we dearly wanted to deliver Patch 1.2 for Cyberpunk 2077 in the timespan we detailed previously, the recent cyber attack on the studio’s IT infrastructure and extensive scope of the update mean this unfortunately will not happen — we’ll need some additional time. 1/3"

Lol, now we finally know why they were "Hacked", probably faked that so they could allow themselves more time and save face

Furesis44d ago

Sure and the aliens build the pyramids.Come on man

masterfox44d ago

Holy damn!, the Aliens build the pyramids?incredible! , we learn something new everyday. :D

CobraKai44d ago

They designed it. People built it.

TheCaptainKuchiki44d ago

Somebody watched a lil too much of Stargate

crxss44d ago

everyone's an expert conspiracies theorist these days

Bobertt44d ago

Obviously the Aliens didn't build the pyramids or it would be made out of metal.

...I’m sorry but how did you reach that conclusion? Everything got to be a conspiracy to you guys, I don’t get it.

Ninver44d ago

Unfortunately this is the result of losing consumer trust. Anything CD puts forward will be met with criticism.

GamerRN44d ago

Can you explain any other reason this hack and data dump should delay an update? The data is out there, that's it. Why would this do more than a weeks worth of damage to a team working on a game? PR should be going crazy, HR trying to find the leak, and the CEO getting pissed, but the programmers have only but to continue on the game. Again, why a delay?

JackBNimble44d ago

This was a scam from the very beginning.
Look how much support and sympathy they attracted from this hack . Now they also have excuses why they can't fix their broken game.

"Can you explain any other reason this hack and data dump should delay an update?"

I don't work at CD Project Red so no I can't, and neither can you. But if I were to speculate, as I've dealt with crisis management several times, it's usually a situation where it's all hands on deck. Everyone is dropping what they're currently working on and focuses on dealing with the problem and helping each other across departments. That means that they gotta deal with restoring from back up, creating new security measures, valuing the extent of the problem and tons of other more specific work we as outsiders don't know about.

You gotta be incredibly dumb to try to fake your own hacking, especially when you got employees that are not happy with the management of the company. If it leaks it's going to tarnish their reputation way beyond what it already is, and being hacked in the first place have given them some sympathy but it has also tarnished them because of conspirators and people who think CD Project can't protect themselves. CDPR may not be the smartest developer out there, but they're definitely not without a single brain cell.

These sorts of people in our world are the sorts that think the glass is half empty. We all know it's half full. Good luck to them, they sure need it right now.

Silly gameAr44d ago

Better than having people in our world that are closed minded, and just accept everything they hear as fact. Thank goodness for the people that think outside of the box, or we would be f***ed over everyday.

@Silly gameAr
Very true - as long as people are able to base their opinions on valid arguments and research. But there is also the other spectrum of people that make their own truths based on way less valid arguments than the news first presented. These people tend to disregard anything they don't like and make up a truth that fits their world view, while thinking they are not 'sheeple' and are proud of thinking for themselves.
You need the balance between the two.

DafunkyRebel44d ago

You probably thought 2012 was the end of the world too right?

thorstein44d ago

As bizarre a claim as that is...given the leadership of CDPR lately, I wouldn't be surprised. That doesn't mean I believe you but there is some logic to that: why would a hack that stole a copy of the game prevent them from working on their copy?

I feel bad for CDPR these guys can’t catch a break.

Ash01Live44d ago

They don't feel bad for taking your money.

RazzerRedux44d ago

Well, they offered your money back to you.

-Foxtrot44d ago

@RazzerRedux

Because they were caught

Is that supposed to make people feel better

Imagine that in court

"I know my client Mr Rob stole £250,000 from a bank branch on the outskirts of the city but when he got caught by police he did give it back to them without any hesitation. So I'm thinking we should the poor man go and call it a day, how about it? He's not caught a break since he was caught, don't you feel bad for him"

SDuck44d ago

I don't feel bad for giving it to them.

@-Foxtrot
Ah yes, the broken game almost slipped through unnoticed. What do you mean "they got caught"?

CS744d ago

SDuck, is your brain rotting?

“They got caught” because they were hoping to lie and release their unfinished game and make millions (Like Anthem and countless others)

And Sony said stop your shit and yeeted that garbage game off their store.

RazzerRedux44d ago (Edited 44d ago )

@foxtrot

Giving people their money back? Yes, that is kind of the definition of making people feel better when they are getting refunded. That doesn't mean they didn't screw up. Sure they did. Comparing it to robbery though is idiotic. Every game that isn't perfect at launch (aka "caught") is robbery then. Your made up drama is just stupid either way. Stealing from a bank? Dude....just stop.

ecchiless44d ago (Edited 44d ago )

sure they did the refunds easy for ppl.....

they did send ppl to sony and ms

So no Bloodlines 2, Dying Light 2 and Cyberpunk Patch 2 for now ...
...
Anything with the number 2 attached to it is apparently cursed for 2021.

DivineHand12544d ago

I'm now concerned about horizon and god of war. Since those those are sequels that may be coming this year.

wwinterj44d ago

I guess the plan worked then. Sympathy is what they want here. I don't trust a word they say given the blatant lies the higher ups told and still tell.

Tedakin44d ago

... they did it to themselves. They took your 60 dollars while hiding problems with their game and lying to your face. Don't defend billion dollar companies that treat you poorly.

JackBNimble44d ago

This is why I call bullshit on this so called hack.

Sure cyberpunk sure .) Let's see what will be the next excuse.

metalgod8844d ago

I can understand them taking more time to ensure they don't introduce more bugs while fixing the old ones, but blaming the pushback on a recent cyber attack? I'm not so sure about that. I'm pretty sure they have some sort of security team, and if not, it's like they need all developers on deck to fix their exploitable entry point.

DivineHand12544d ago

I had already anticipated the patch would delay because in the initial report they said their systems were encrypted and they needed to reload everything from a backup. I don't know how often a backup is done there but I would imaging that several days of work were lost. I just hope the delay won't be too significant.
