If you were holding out for the next big patch to release for Cyberpunk 2077, you’ll have to wait a bit longer. CD Projekt Red has announced on Twitter that the next big patch has been delayed due to the cyber attack the studio faced earlier in February.
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. 1/3

“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.”
If you remember the roadmap the studio revealed last month, there was no date listed for patch 1.2.
“It’s not the news we enjoy sharing, but we want to make sure we launch this update properly,” the official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account states. “Stay tuned for more information as the time draws closer. Thank you for your continued patience and support.”
After the cyberattack, the source code for Red Engine, as well as unreleased code for The Witcher 3, Cyberpunk 2077, and free-to-play Gwent were sold at an auction on the dark web.
Just in: #CDProjektRed AUCTION IS CLOSED. #Hackers auctioned off stolen source code for the #RedEngine and #CDPR game releases, and have just announced that a satisfying offer from outside the forum was received, with the condition of no further distribution or selling. pic.twitter.com/4Z2zoZlkV6
