Patch 1.2 for Cyberpunk 2077 being pushed back to March

Cyberpunk 2077

Here’s a line that’s sure to conjure up some recently repressed memories: Cyberpunk 2077 is experiencing another delay. No, not the delay which saw its release date pushed to December 2020 (a delay which nonetheless saw the game released with NPC and A.I. issues and an abundance of unfinished content) — the latest delay pertains to Patch 1.2 for Cyberpunk 2077 being pushed back to March.

Per the official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter:

“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.”

The “recent cyber attack” refers to the alleged hack and subsequent auctioning of vital source code taken from developer CD Projekt Red’s internal systems and network. CDPR goes on to explain that the reason for their delay wasn’t solely due to circumstances of the cyber attack, however; Patch 1.2 for Cyberpunk 2077 will be the most substantial update the game has seen in some time.

“Our goal for Patch 1.2 for Cyberpunk 2077 goes beyond any of our previous updates,” CDPR explained. “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.

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.”

While delays can be frustrating in the world of gaming, especially with a game such as Cyberpunk 2077, which has seen its fair share of bad luck and poor decisions, the decision to postpone Patch 1.2 for Cyberpunk 2077 is most likely the right call; that is, we’d like to make sure CDPR launches this update properly too, and we don’t see a repeat of the whole Hotfix 1.1 situation, where a hotfix had to be implemented to fix a game-breaking bug, dubbed The Takemura Holocall bug — a bug which was itself caused by a previous update (yes, we’re confused too).

We’ll keep you updated on the status of the Patch 1.2 for Cyberpunk 2077 update as it becomes further available.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
