Apparently, as a result of the recent cyber attack, the studio has no choice but to delay the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 patch until sometime in March.
CDPR broke this unfortunate news via Twitter.
In the said Tweet, the studio said that their goal for the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 patch went any updates they previously made to the game. They say that they still have more work to do to make sure that the players get the "numerous overall quality improvements and fixes". Because of this, they are now aiming for a March release.
Just to recap, CDPR was subject to a terrible hacking incident earlier in February.
This resulted in hackers getting their hands on numerous sensitive and confidential information. This includes company documents, as well as source code for their multiple titles, including but not limited to, Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher series of games.
With that said, such an attack would be devastating for any developer. Even more so for a studio that's trying to make up for the botched initial release of Cyberpunk 2077.
Can Cyberpunk 2077 Still Turn Things Around?
Cyberpunk 2077 has unfortunately been subject to much scrutiny since its release, although the studio is partly to blame.
However, CDPR has been working hard to try and fix the mess they've created.
Since the release of Cyberpunk 2077 back in November, the studio has been hard at work trying to fix all the multiple issues going on with the game. This includes dropping patch 1.1 in January, as well as drumming up excitement by releasing a detailed timeline of what's coming to Cyberpunk 2077 over the next couple of months.
Having said that, time is still on Cyberpunk 2077's side to turn things around.
Many games before have suffered from disastrous launches only to bounce back even stronger. However, even though they still have time to satisfy disappointed fans and draw in even more players to the game, CDPR will want to do as much as they can as soon as possible.
