CD Projekt Red has announced that Cyberpunk 2077's Update 1.2 has been delayed until the second half of March. This comes as a result of the cyberattack from earlier this month, which saw hackers obtaining internal documents and source code for the company's games.
"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," reads a tweet from the official Cyberpunk 2077 account.
"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."
The announcement was likely prompted by fans spotting changes to Cyberpunk 2077's internal testing branch yesterday. The RPG's notoriously shaky release left players craving post-launch updates that would fix the plethora of issues encountered so far.
"It’s not the news we enjoy sharing, but we want to make sure we launch this update properly," CD Projekt Red said in its closing tweet, while promising more details about Update 1.2 as work on it gets closer to being finished.
Cyberpunk 2077 is available now on PC, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, and Google Stadia.
