Last month, Riot Games suffered a cyberattack that compromised the company’s development environment, leaving developers scrambling and various users looking for answers.
The social engineering attack was successful in stealing a plethora of source code for both League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics, along with the code for a legacy anti-cheat system. This breach caused the delay of several releases for both titles, but a month later, Riot’s release schedule is slowly returning back to normal.
“We’re working to bounce back from the Social Engineering attack, but unfortunately Patch 13.3 will be delayed,” Lilu “Riru” Cabreros said in the patch notes. “We apologize for the inconvenience and want to thank you once again for your patience as we work through these unprecedented circumstances.”
Riot has confirmed that this upcoming patch will be dropping to live servers a day later than originally planned, going out on Thursday, Feb. 9 for all servers except SEA, which will be dropping on Friday, Feb. 10 instead.
