CD Projekt Red has announced that the upcoming v1.2 patch for Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed as a result of a recent hack suffered by the company. The upcoming patch is expected to be a significant update to the game and was announced in early January as part of CDPR’s commitment to the game.
The recent cyber attack on the studio’s IT infrastructure and extensive scope of the update means there just isn’t enough time to release the update as planned. Instead, the update is now aiming for release in the second half of March.
A statement on the delay was posted on twitter in a series of tweets:
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.
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.
It’s not the news we enjoy sharing, but we want to make sure we launch this update properly. Stay tuned for more information as the time draws closer. Thank you for your continued patience and support.
The hack is also likely to affect the development of the next-gen version of the game, which has already been pushed back to the second half of 2021. New DLC for the game is also expected later this year, according to the development roadmap revealed in January:
