Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.2 Delayed Due to Cyber Attack on CD Projekt RED

Oh the irony! Hacking was a very viable way to develop your character and play Cyberpunk 2077, but CD Projekt RED did not think their 2021 would be made worse due to an IRL hack. Not only did they lose out invaluable source code to hackers, but said hackers also sold the codes in a move that jeopardizes the structural integrity of a video game developer. You could make jokes about the 90's meme letter the hackers sent to the company, however they clearly don't see the humor in this situation as this has taken up resources which otherwise were meant to go towards patching Cyberpunk 2077- especially on older gen consoles.

CD Projekt RED took to twitter earlier today to inform us that the patch is delayed, as many speculated, but also that the additional time will also contribute towards increasing the scope of the patch beyond earlier updates. Indeed, in a situation where they simply can't seem to catch a break, perhaps transparency and downplaying expectations would have been the way to go. As it stands, the public feedback to this news is a gentle reminder to the sane TPU reader to keep social media and public comments at arm's length to maintain said sanity. We sympathize with CD Projekt RED and hope that they come out better to do better by their paying customers alike.

Hopefully this is a LOT bigger than the 1.1 patch. The game is extremely buggy still.

1.1 was stopping the fire
1.2 should be rebuilding the house. If 1.2 does not fix the majority of bugs then backlash will happen! :0

Imo alot of people should cut CDR som slack. They are not perfect, far from, but at least they try (like look at what we have left: its ticktock cycles from EA and the others al day long! Having a company that dear to attack a project like cyberpunk and pull it off (somewhat), is not be taken lightly. Lets hope they have learned from their mistakes and becomes an even better developer

They seem to have lost control and I feel sorry for them, tho I'm not sure if it's pity or disdain.
They really need to work on transparency. Let's hope they can come back on track.

I look forward to a well Polished game (at some point.) Still enjoying Witcher 3 GOTY with 75+ mods and RTGI, but can't wait for the native RT update.

Maybe with the source code we can make a competent game because all CDPR has are excuses.

If they fix the one quest I can't complete and add a sharpness setting then I will be happy.

You say that like it's been made public, not sold.

Why are they fixing it then? Pushing dates of DLCs and patches alike. Because they like the bad rep?

I mean, the game was in such a state that they offered refunds no questions asked and you think that they fixed it in two months when they launched it utterly broken after years of development and Youtube has a constant stream of new ludicrous bugs?

Sure, man.

You and I both know the game still has a ton of bugs. There is ample evidence all over the internet. Plenty of YouTubers have already covered the topic.

How many game do you know that are barred from the playstation store due to bugs? That alone is all I need to say.

Are we talking about small bugs that are barely noticeable? Sure there's a few. Not any more or less than any other game, including GTA5 which has been out for how many years and they still haven't fixed them all? Or how about Bioshock Infinite that still has a few bugs/glitches?

I personally think that CDPR kicked ass with this game and has made more progress fixing things than nearly any other dev. It fraking rocks and anyone complaining about bugs/glitches needs to put a cork in their pie-hole, quit whining and just enjoy the game.

CP2077 wasn't taken off the PS4/XBO stores because of the bugs but because of users complaining about performance. Let's not spread disinformation.

To be honest, I finished the game once, before patch 1.1, and haven't encounter any serious bug. Just physics related bugs, but those weren't by any means show stoppers, just funny, and sometimes annoying.
Also the game has so many backstories and 2ndary missions so really appreciate the effort they put in this game.
The only problem I have with this game is the cartoonish graphic, or maybe that's by design?

Maybe the game isn't enjoyable for them. OR, it was enjoyable, but something like HZD is currently MOAR enjoyable?

Yeah it's only like, 20% bugs. First minute really sets the tone with the food vendor's face stuck in one expression. Then there's the flying car that just pops out of existence while you're riding it. Then there's the Delamain vehicle that explodes when you call it, falls through the map, then pops back up as an NPC vehicle missing all its doors that you can't get in. Then ending it all off with food vendor teleporting, talking to the player while the player is in a vehicle, phasing right through the vehicle, getting launched away and sliding back into place. This play session was missing the glitch where getting out of a vehicle next to a wall puts you inside the wall, sometimes clips you through the terrain and makes you fall through the world.

Very few bugs though.

I play both GTAV and CP2077 and yeah, GTAV has a heck of a lot less bugs than CP2077. GTAV also has about 200 more hours of content. Cyberpunk's main story is fairly short and a majority of the side missions are grindy.

I also played Bioshock infinite on launch, I don't remember a single bug. There's really isn't much in the way of news in that regard as well, especially not in comparison to CP2077.

Even if CP2077 fixes all it's bugs, for me it'll still be a massive disappointment due to the broken promises. AngryJoe gave the game a 6, which I personally agree with. I'd bump that up to a 7/10 with the bugs fixed. It needed about 2 more years to improve the quests, add in the promised dynamic weather system (they promised acid rain and unscripted sand storms), vastly improve the romance options and depth, improve the weapon cards (which are currently still bugged and missing information), vastly improve the AI (the game's cop system is not acceptable), and much much more.

You are taking this far too personal. If it rocks for you, that's great. Please go ahead and enjoy the game. That said, do not come out here and say everyone who disagrees with you is wrong or "whinning". That's not a legitimate reason to dismiss anyone's argument, that's an ad hominem attack.


"CP2077 wasn't taken off the PS4/XBO stores because of the bugs but because of users complaining about performance. Let's not spread disinformation."

www.nytimes.com/2020/12/18/technology/cyberpunk-2077-refund.html

"PlayStation’s move to stop distributing Cyberpunk 2077, a role-playing game set in a dystopian crime-ridden megalopolis that was long hyped as the game of the decade, came a week after the game was released and days after complaints from users about its glitches and poor visuals on some platforms drew attention."

www.guru3d.com/news-story/sony-removes-cyberpunk-2077-from-the-playstation-store,3.html

"Things are diving nose down, Sony removed CD Projekt Cyberpunk 2077 from its PlayStation Store and is offering full refunds, taking unusual steps to relieve customers furious about bugs plaguing one of the year’s most highly anticipated games."

It's because of both. Just stop, you are only making this worse.

do cops still just spawn behind you?
does water react to....well anything at all yet?
is AI still not capable of driving around any object in the way?
does ai sitll just walk in circles in the street and straight up vanish when action starts and you are not looking at them?
do cars still get replaced when you dont look at them for a second?

oh wait....those were intentional shortcomings so the game could be pushed out the door for that sweet sweet hype money....

Meh, sucks the game came out the way it dig. Wasn't the first, wasn't the last. I had a great time in the 10-15 hours I played it. People hyped these games up like an AMD product. It could never live up to everyone's hype anyway.

And besides, this for sure means that a Witcher 4 game is coming and they are going to make it good.

No.

Was it ever intended to?

They do and always have on my system.
ZoneDymodoes ai sitll just walk in circles in the street and straight up vanish when action starts and you are not looking at them?
I've never seen that one personally, though there are plenty of video's about it. I think that was an early glitch that people are still whining about.
ZoneDymodo cars still get replaced when you dont look at them for a second?
Not that I've seen.
ZoneDymooh wait....those were intentional shortcomings so the game could be pushed out the door for that sweet sweet hype money....
Riiiight.... Are you and your friends done CDPR bashing? It's getting really, rather annoyingly, old...

I'm personally still getting a lot of bugs like foliage being visible through walls, bodies floating through cars, bugged stats / weapon cards, and bugged attributes. You can apply unlimited armidilo mods but for some reason crit chance mods aren't applying beyond the first (no indication is made of any limitation on it either). Technical ability still doesn't seem to actually give you the extra armor it says it should either. (TBH though it's kind of a joke though given that max technical is only equal to about a single armodilio mod. It's unbalanced for sure.) I play on hard difficulty and enemies were 1 tapping me before I figured out that it was due to a glitch. I stopped playing because my options were: a) cheese the game with armodilo mods b) get 1 tapped. At that point it doesn't feel like an RPG, I have to play the game a certain way.
