Due to a recent cyber attack against CD Projekt earlier this month, the next major update to Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed until the second half of March.
"While we dearly wanted to deliver Patch 1.2 for Cyberpunk 2077 in the timespan we detailed previously, the recent cyber attack on the studio's IT infrastructure and extensive scope of the update mean this unfortunately will not happen — we'll need some additional time," said CD Projekt Red via the Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account.
For those that do not know, the recent cyber attack was a targeted ransomware attack against CD Projekt's systems, and they were able to steal full game source codes of games such as Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher 3, and more. The hackers were also able to steal internal documents relating to the company.
On Twitter, CD Projekt Red goes on to state, "Our goal for Patch 1.2 goes beyond any of our previous updates. We've been working on numerous overall quality improvements and fixes, and we still have work to do to make sure that's what you get. With that in mind, we're now aiming for release in the second half of March."
According to CD Projekt Red, Patch 1.2 will be bigger than previous updates. Assuming that this would be considered a significant patch, it will continue to fix bugs and issues plaguing the game since launch.
Cyberpunk 2077 had a rocky launch that sparked a backlash from its fans. CD Projekt Red has been committed to ironing out these issues with multiple hotfixes and patches.
Cyberpunk 2077 is available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, and Google Stadia.
