Developer CD Projekt Red hasn’t had the best of luck lately. After the disastrous launch of Cyberpunk 2077, a massive cyber-attack happened as Hackers reportedly stole and sold the source code for many of their biggest games online.
Now comes the news that the big Cyberpunk 2077 February update has been hit with a delay due to that very cyberattack. Instead, it will now release in late March.
Official statement via the Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account:
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
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 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— Cyberpunk 2077 (@CyberpunkGame) February 24, 2021
With just four days left in the month of February, I think we all knew the breach would have some kind of impact on the ‘recovery’ of Cyberpunk 2077.
