Cyberpunk 2077 is notorious for game-breaking bugs and poor performance. These issues have caused the game to be unavailable to PlayStation 4 owners until recently. However, these problems do not seem to have deterred eager consumers. Cyberpunk 2077 was the most downloaded game on the PlayStation 4 during June 2021 in the United States and Europe. Cyberpunk 2077 was pulled from the PlayStation store this past December. The game played decently on the latest consoles and on PC, but was simply a mess on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. CD Projekt Red (CPDR), Sony, and Microsoft all offered refunds to disgruntled consumers. CDPR admitted that they had not spent as much time focusing on the quality... Read more...
CD Projekt Red was unable to make good on many of the promises made before the launch of Cyberpunk 2077. While the team has been working hard to improve the game, some of these promises remain unfulfilled. Many players have wondered whether or not CD Projekt Red (CDPR) will ever release a DLC for the game. Luckily this DLC may be arriving sooner rather than later. A leaked campaign for Cyberpunk 2077 promises players that they should expect more content soon. The leaked ad first appeared on YouTube and Instagram. It not only stated that Cyberpunk 2077 would receive its biggest update to date but that there are also “more things to come.” CD Projekt Red has not issued an official statement... Read more...
We first noticed last week that Sony would lift its PlayStation Store ban on Cyberpunk 2077. The game was booted from the PlayStation Store shortly after its release in December 2020 due to a litany of performance/gameplay issues and a plethora of bugs that made running the game on PlayStation hardware unbearable. Today, the game reemerged on the PlayStation Store, following months of significant updates and smaller hotfixes from developer CD Projekt Red. The last big update, Patch 1.23, landed on June 17th and brought some much-needed fixes (and polish) for missions, gameplay, and overall performance. Users may continue to experience some performance issues with the PS4 edition while we continue... Read more...
Since the troubled launch of Cyberpunk 2077, games studio CD Projekt Red has been applying patches to fix the many issues plaguing the game. The company has now released patch 1.23, which brings a laundry list of fixes for quests, gameplay, visuals, stability, and more. Announced today on Twitter and the Cyberpunk 2077 website, patch 1.23 seems to focus on the open world quests and missions you complete through the main storyline. In total, there are 17 different missions that have one or more fixes, so we will not list them all, but here are a couple of the big ones: The Heist Fixed an issue where Jackie could go through glass. Fixed an issue preventing some guards from attacking the player.... Read more...
The Cyberpunk 2077 launch for PC and consoles left much to be desired after many bugs and glitches ruined the play experiences. However, the company behind the game, CD Projekt Red, has been working hard to recover from the nightmare, and it seems things are now going in its favor. Cyberpunk 2077, which was once removed from the PlayStation store, has seemingly reappeared in what could be a return to grace. On December 17th, Sony decided to pull the plug on Cyberpunk 2077 after game-breaking bugs hampered the initial launch. It is now six months later, and we are several patches deep, like Patch 1.2, which fixed several problems but brought in new ones. Regardless of the new issues, it was thought... Read more...
CD Projekt recently released information about their Q1 2021 and the results are mixed. The company experienced a 2% increase in sales, but 64.7% decrease in net profits. CD Projekt noted that their decrease in net profits is primarily due to the cost of fixing Cyberpunk 2077. CD Projekt net profits equaled $32.5 million PLN ($8.84 million USD) for Q1 2021. This was lower than was initally expected. CD Projekt CFO Piotr Nielubowicz remarked, “Lower than usual net profitability is mainly due to continuing depreciation of Cyberpunk 2077 development expenditures, work on updating the game, and R&D activities related to future projects. These expenses are recognized as current-period costs... Read more...
The release of Cyberpunk 2077 was disastrous. Many, especially investors, were unhappy with the end result. Four class action lawsuits were filed this past winter due to all the issues associated with the game. It was recently confirmed that all four class action lawsuits against CD Projekt Red have been consolidated into one major case. CD Projekt Red (CDPR) noted earlier this week that a lead plaintiff has been assigned and that the consolidated cases will be subject to common court proceedings. The four lawsuits were filed in December and January. At least two of the lawsuits were filed by investors. The investors claim in both of these lawsuits that CDPR did not disclose that the game was... Read more...
In terms of PR and gamer experience, Cyberpunk 2077 flopped out of the gate with a plague of glitches and multiple undelivered features. On the other side of the equation, the game still made quite a bit of money for CD Projekt Red, even in the face of game returns and Sony refusing to sell the game on its platform. Now, the company executives who pushed this game out the door will receive millions in bonuses, while the developers at the grindstone will get significantly less. Top executives of gaming companies receiving massive bonuses while the employees on the floor get by with less is something of a recurring issue. In March, we reported on Activision-Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick possibly getting... Read more...
As time goes on, Cyberpunk 2077 is slowly working its way toward the game it should have been upon launch. New features are being added, and with them come new bugs and interesting glitches such as the ones we saw earlier this month. Now, CD Projekt Red has released Hotfix 1.22 to bring some much-needed fixes to the game and improvements to stability and performance on all platforms. Quests and Open World Fixes It can become immensely annoying to be stuck in an area or have your character glitch out to where you can no longer use weapons. Thankfully, players report issues as they come up, and CDPR is quashing the most prevalent ones. This hotfix comes with seven new fixes to make quests and open-world... Read more...
Cyberpunk 2077 may not have lived up to the monumental hype preceding its launch, because when it did arrive, it came with too many bugs and performance issues. CD Projekt Red still managed to sell 13.7 million copies of the game, however, and despite a refund campaign, the game sold exceptionally well. It was also a boon for CDPR's overall finances in 2020—the developer raked in more than half a billion dollars last year. Full-year revenue came to nearly 2.14 billion Polish Zloty (PLN), which at the current exchange rate is worth around $567 million in US currency. That amounts to a more than fourfold increase in annual revenue compared to 2019, and according to CDPR, the "dynamic growth... Read more...
CD Projekt Red continues to stomp out bugs in Cyberpunk 2077, one of the most hyped and highly anticipated games of 2020, which unfortunately could have benefited from several more coats of polish before it released. It gets another coat of polish today, as well as a commitment from CDPR to work on improving the game in hopes it will sell for several years. First let's talk about the latest patch. Hotfix version 1.21 is mostly focused on further improving the overall stability of the game, in addition to fixing what CDPR says are the most most common issues that could potentially block a player's progression in the game. It gets rid of some show-stopping gameplay bugs, in other words. It's a... Read more...
Cyberpunk 2077’s Patch 1.2 recently went live, bringing dozens of bug fixes and updates across PC and console platforms  As with Patch 1.1 bringing new game-breaking bugs, Patch 1.2 does the same, and players are taking notice. It seems Cyberpunk 2077 updates have become a horrendous whack-a-mole game where CD Projekt Red fixes some issues, but others pop up elsewhere. While Patch 1.2 may have introduced optimizations, especially for consoles, it certainly has its fair share of new issues possibly stemming from new features. The Cyberpunk 2077 gaming subreddit is the main hub for information (and memes) about the game, and all players can do is post the glitches found with the new... Read more...
While it may have been the most hyped-up game in and before 2020, Cyberpunk 2077 certainly got off to a rather rocky start. Bugs and glitches were rampant, performance was not the greatest (especially on consoles), and many customers were left unhappy. Now, after several patches and upcoming updates, the game is in a fairly solid state. When all is said and done, it seems that CD Projekt Red has learned some lessons for the future. During CDPR’s strategy video shown below, the company went over what went wrong during the development and marketing of Cyberpunk 2077. Adam Kicinski explained that the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 did not meet CDPR's  core values which include quality at the... Read more...
CD Projekt Red promised that the next major patch for its bug-filled Cyberpunk 2077 would arrive in late March. Although Patch 1.2 hasn't arrived yet, CD Projekt Red has provided the next best thing: a full rundown of the release notes. Patch 1.2 was initially set for release in February, but the ransomware attack that hit the company delayed that release timetable. To say that the patch notes are lengthy would be an understatement, as we don't believe we've ever seen such an extensive list of fixes. The changes cover various categories, including Gameplay, Quests, Open World, Cinematic Design, Environment and Levels, Graphics/Audio/Animation, UI, Stability And Performance, and Miscellaneous. ...

Back in late January, CD Projekt Red issued the first major patch for Cyberpunk 2077, which fixed a litany of issues with the game. The second patch was supposed to land in February, but the developer got hit by a ransomware attack which put it behind schedule. Now that things are getting back to some semblance of normalcy for CD Projekt Red, it's ready to give us some details on what is coming with Patch 1.2. The way that CD Projekt Red went about announcing the changes in Patch 1.2 is a bit cringeworthy, as it's doing so as if it were an in-game news broadcast by Gillean Jordan. But we digress... The Night City Police Department (NCPD) Quick Response team will now be less frantic... Read more...
Unfortunately, we have more bad news for Cyberpunk 2077 fans waiting for the planned February release of the next major game patch. Cyberpunk 2077 launched with a wealth of negative attention due to performance issues on previous generation consoles and a plethora of bugs. Developer CD Projekt Red (CDPR) addressed some of those lingering issues with hotfixes and released the massive Patch 1.1 in January. The company promised that the second big update -- Patch 1.2 -- would follow-up in February. Unfortunately, the cyberattack against CDPR that occurred earlier this month appears to have torpedoed those plans, as Patch 1.2 will now be released in March. In a tweet this morning, CDPR explained... Read more...
Back in early February, CD Projekt Red was the unfortunate victim of a network breach, which allowed hackers to make off with source code for some of its most popular games -- including the recently released Cyberpunk 2077. The perpetrators of the heist reportedly sold the source code for Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3 to an unnamed party on February 11th. Since that time, the source code has been leaked to the internet, with several brazen individuals posting links via Twitter. To combat these latest leaks of its source code, CDPR is issuing DMCA takedown notices for the tweets. Motherboard was able to obtain the text of one of these notices, which stated, “Description of infringement:... Read more...
The hacker who gained unauthorized access to CD Projekt Red's servers and seemingly stole the source code for several games has already reportedly leaked one of them, after the developer publicly declared it had no intention of paying a ransom or negotiating. In addition, the hacker appears to be trying to start a bidding war for the remaining data. To be clear, CD Projekt Red never outright acknowledged that the hacker stole actual source code, but said the person responsible "collected certain data" belonging to the developer, as well as encrypted some devices on its network. However, reading between the lines of the developer's broader statement on the intrusion, it sure sounds like the hacker... Read more...
Game developer CD Projekt Red announced on Twitter that it has fallen prey to a "targeted cyber attack," in which an unidentified actor (or actors, as the case might be) gained unauthorized access to its internal network and are demanding a ransom. In a ransom note left by the attacker(s), it is claimed they managed to steal the source code for a few prominent titles, including Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher 3, Gwent, and an unreleased version of Witcher 3. It's not clear if the hack did actually result in stolen source as claimed, though CD Projekt Red did acknowledge that the responsible party "collected certain data" belonging to the developer, and also encrypted some devices on the network....

Earlier in the week, user PixelRick discovered a vulnerability in Cyberpunk 2077, leading to code execution on a system via malicious data files. While modders were initially blamed for the risk, it turns out that the issue stemmed from poor coding on CD Projekt Red’s part. Now, the Poland-based games company has released a patch to fix the problem and hopefully make Cyberpunk files safe. Announced on Twitter, hotfix 1.12 is now available on PC, and it fixes a couple of issues pertaining to the vulnerability discovered. First and foremost, CDPR fixed the “buffer overrun issue” or buffer overflow in several places within Cyberpunk 2077. Secondly, yet equally as important, the... Read more...
Thomas Mahler, the founder and chief executive officer of Moon Studios, has issued an apology for a recent rant comparing some game developers to "snake oil salesman," calling them out for hyping and promising absent features for big title releases. He brought up a few high profile examples, including Cyberpunk 2077 developed by CD Projekt Red, and No Man's Sky developed by Hello Games. According to Mahler, this practice of over-promising began with Peter Molyneux, who was the "master" at hyping games and then not delivering on players' expectations. Then he went on to call out Sean Murray by name, the founder and managing director of Hello Games, saying he "apparently learned straight from the... Read more...
Yesterday, we reported that CD Projekt Red sent out a warning that was effectively against "downloading mods", but it appears that we did not have the full story from the developers of Cyberpunk 2077. According to users on the CD Projekt Red forums, the Cyberpunk 2077 devs are partially to blame for what seems to be several vulnerabilities used in conjunction, which led to the outcry. Yesterday, forum user yamamushi replied to the main warning thread, which disclosed a vulnerability in Cyberpunk 2077. He explained that since the announcement, modders were getting blamed for the vulnerability when that line of reasoning was entirely wrong. Specifically, "What CDPR posted [in the thread]...
