Cyberpunk 2077's post-launch support has mainly revolved around free updates that add new fixes, improvements, and smaller servings of new content. With the Phantom Liberty expansion also on the way, patch 1.7's release date might end up further polishing the RPG before its first and only planned major content drop arrives.
Cyberpunk 2077's patch 1.7 will likely bring a new batch of improvements and bug fixes as CD Projekt Red continues to polish its popular RPG. The title has seen a resurgence following the release of the Edgerunners anime and, although a new game in series is on the way, work on it will continue for the foreseeable future.
Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.7 Release Date
CD Projekt Red hasn't shared much about Cyberpunk 2077's patch 1.7 release date yet. The RPG's updates haven't stuck to a predictable schedule, either, which makes estimating when it might come rather tricky.
Still, given the lengthy periods of time it takes to push them out, the most plausible scenario would see it launching at some point in the second half of 2023.

CD Projekt Red revealed more details about the Phantom Liberty expansion in June 2023, confirming that it's due out in September, but didn't directly address the next patch.
It would make sense for a major update to launch either alongside or in close proximity to it, so we currently expect patch 1.7 to also release at some point in September 2023.
The post detailing the updated system requirements reads as follows, suggesting that Cyberpunk 2077's patch 1.7 release date may occur in close proximity to the expansion's launch:
"These changes will take effect following the next update to the base game, no earlier than 90 days, and also apply to Phantom Liberty."
The system requirements update post landed on the 11th June, so if we're thinking that the update would arrive 90 days after this, we would be looking at a date of September 9, 2023.
The exact nature of its content is also a mystery, but we'll likely learn more over the course of the coming months.
It is, however, certain that we can no longer talk about a potential Cyberpunk 2077 patch 1.7 release date on last-gen consoles, as those versions of the game are confirmed to no longer receive new updates.
We'll be on the lookout for any news about Cyberpunk 2077's patch 1.7 release date and will update this article as soon as there's anything to report.
