- The Cyberpunk 2077 1.2 patch will not arrive until the second half of March
- Namely, due to the recent cyber attack on the CD Project RED
- In return, the patch will fix many more bugs than any update so far
After the rather ambiguous start of Cyberpunk 2077, the developers promised to make two major fixes in January and February this year, which will restore the game’s poor performance on previous generation consoles, but in the end they couldn’t follow this schedule. Although revision 1.1 was still in progress in January, the CD Project RED recently indicated that update 1.2 could not be delivered until March.
The delay, of course, was due to a recent cyber attack on the studio, in which the perpetrators not only looted many sensitive data, but also damaged many files and thus hindered work. In return, the developers promise that the 1.2 fix will be bigger than ever and fix a lot of bugs, or that Cyberpunk 2077 will be thoroughly improved once the update, currently scheduled for the second half of March, expires.
While we’ve been keen to deliver patch 1.2 for Cyberpunk 2077 over the time period we described in detail before, the recent cyber attack on the studio’s information infrastructure and the extensive scope of the update mean this unfortunately won’t happen – we’ll need some extra time. 1/3
