Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.2 Delayed Due To Cyber Attack
It was recently revealed that CD Projekt RED had sustained a cyber attack, which eventually lead to source code for some of their games being shared on the Internet. That said, it turns out that the attack is also the reason behind the delay for the next big Cyberpunk 2077 patch.
CDPR has taken to Twitter to announce that Patch 1.2 will not be arriving at the time the devs intended. Instead, they will need to work a bit longer on it, with the new launch being set for the second half of March. “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,” reads the Twitter thread.
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. 3/3

However, due to the cyber attack, they will need a bit longer to work on things and make sure they are where the players need them to be. “It’s not the news we enjoy sharing, but we want to make sure we launch this update properly,” they said.
