The Cyberpunk 2077 patch 1.2 is delayed due to the cyberattack earlier this month. What were the changes, and when will it come out now? Find out here.
CD Projekt Red just can’t catch a break. After the cyberattack that hit the studio earlier this month, the long-awaited patch 1.2 that was supposed to fix even more problems is being delayed.
And we’re not talking about a few days here, unfortunately.
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— Cyberpunk 2077 (@CyberpunkGame) February 24, 2021
As you can see here, CD Projekt Red was seemingly looking forward to releasing patch 1.2 that was supposed to make the game so much better. Talk about saving face and all that. But with the cyberattack, that won’t happen.
When Will Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.2 Be Released?
The devs took to Twitter again to announce that they are now aiming to release this major patch in the second half of March, meaning a release for patch 1.2 between March 15th and March 31st.
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. 2/3— Cyberpunk 2077 (@CyberpunkGame) February 24, 2021
It’s not ideal and those that haven’t given up on the game were probably really looking forward to this patch that was supposed to fix so much. But it’s better this way, since a lot is on the line for the company, even if it’s becoming increasingly harder for them to please their audience.
If you're feeling bad for CDPR, maybe don't look at the replies their tweets are getting...
