CD Projekt Red announced the news on Twitter, also mentioning that this new patch “goes beyond any of our previous updates.”
“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,” CD Projekt Red wrote.
“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 aforementioned cyber attack against CD Projekt Red compromised the studio’s internal systems and the hackers stole documents and the source code for Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher 3, and more.
These stolen files were reportedly sold in a dark web auction that was allegedly set at $7 million.
Patch 1.2 was part of the Cyberpunk 2077 Updates Roadmap that detailed the game’s future after the litany of launch issues. Alongside these updates, there are still free DLCS planned alongside the free next-gen console update that will arrive in the second half of 2021.
