CD Pro­jekt Red is delay­ing the planned 1.2 patch for Cyber­punk 2077. A series of tweets from the stu­dio explained the recent cyber­at­tack and the “exten­sive scope of the update” means the team will need addi­tion­al time.

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.”

This update seems to be that major patch that was pre­vi­ous­ly slat­ed to release in Feb­ru­ary, mak­ing the new late-March date a delay of around a month.

The stu­dio con­clud­ed their state­ment by say­ing, “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.”

Since the game launched in rough shape, the stu­dio com­mit­ted to fix­ing the issues with a num­ber of patch­es. How­ev­er, a few weeks ago the com­pa­ny suf­fered an attack from hack­ers, who demand­ed a ran­som for source code to their games. To fight back, CD Pro­jekt used DMCA take­downs to slow the spread of the stolen code. The code to Cyber­punk 2077 was report­ed­ly put up for auc­tion online by the hackers.
