Cyberpunk 2077 Developers Can't Work Due to Hack Attack Consequences

Due to a hacker attack, some of CD Projekt RED's remote employees cannot return to work for the second week. At the moment, the company is trying to restore systems and eliminate vulnerabilities. The information was provided by sources of the Bloomberg agency.

As a reminder, in the first half of February, the Polish studio fell victim to a hack: hackers gained access to the source code of Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Gwent, as well as the company's internal documents.

Shortly after the incident, CD Projekt RED warned that the situation would affect the speed of development, and did not deceive: the major patch for Cyberpunk 2077 scheduled for February is now expected in March.

Since most of the employees work remotely, after the hacking, problems arose with access to the virtual private network, and without it it is simply impossible to work. As a result, most of the specialists were sent on vacation, their bank accounts were frozen, and the few developers who have already returned to the Warsaw office are slowly working on updates for Cyberpunk 2077.

The hacker attack on CD Projekt RED systems became known on February 9. In addition to accessing the source code of the company's games, attackers also stole personal information from employees, including bank card information and passport data.
