The virus has been a bit of a headache for the developers of popular online games for many years now.
The main culprits for the infections are often software updates and poor maintenance.
But it’s now becoming a problem for all developers, with many of them not getting paid for the time they’re putting in to the games they develop.
A number of prominent game developers, including the makers of the hit title Assassin’s Creed III, are saying that their games are not going to see any major updates until the end of 2018.
The developers also say that they won’t be able to get paid for that time either.
“As of right now, no updates will be released to Assassin’s the series until 2019,” Ubisoft said in a statement to TechCrunch.
“The team is working diligently on this issue and is hopeful to have a patch ready before the end for 2018.”
Ubisoft is not the only game developer struggling to keep up with the virus.
Another popular franchise in the industry, Grand Theft Auto 5, was recently hit with the infection.
The game was one of the first to see an official patch this week.
The games that are still working are not expected to see significant updates for some time.
“In the coming weeks, we will be making adjustments to our game servers and our network in an effort to get our systems up to par with the threat,” the publisher said in the statement.
Ubisoft has not released a statement on what the company is doing to stop the virus spread, but it is not a good sign for its other big game series, Battlefield 4.
The series has been hit with an ever-growing number of new infections in recent months.
The latest game in the series has seen over a million infections since its release last year, with at least 3,500 of those cases happening on the PC.
Ubisoft said that a “number of our customers have been affected by the virus.”
