Earlier this month, CD Projekt Red was the victim of a large-scale cyberattack, which led to hackers stealing the source code for Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, among sensitive PR documents. As part of the fallout, the studio now says that the need to update its security has led to another delay for the patch.
“While we dearly wanted to deliver Patch 1.2 for Cyberpunk 2077 in the timespan we detailed previously, the recent cyberattack on the studio’s IT infrastructure and extensive scope of the update mean this unfortunately will not happen — we’ll need some additional time,” says CD Projekt Red.

The studio reaffirms that patch 1.2 is more significant than previous updates to the game, bringing overall quality of life updates. Due to the size of the patch, CD Projekt Red has decided to delay it until the “second half of March.”
The news is unfortunate for Cyberpunk 2077 fans who have been waiting for the update for months. The game’s last major patch fixed some of the game’s more immediate bugs and glitches but left fans who wanted more sweeping changes underwhelmed. CD Projekt Red did not mention if the delay will also shift the rest of the game’s 2021 plans, including its next game upgrade. Digital Trends reached out to CD Projekt Red for comment and will update this article when it responds.
Cyberpunk 2077 remains removed from the PlayStation Store and likely won’t return until after the game receives its planned updates.
