The studio said it would take more time to put this major update together.
Polish game company CD Projekt said, Cyberpunk 2077 Will be released later than expected.
In a post on TwitterThe studio said that patch 1.2 will be delayed, partly because the company has recently suffered a cyber attack. CD Projekt stated that the upcoming update will “surpass any of our previous updates” and introduce many fixes and improvements.
The studio revealed in early February that someone had hacked into the IT infrastructure and snatched the source code of Cyberpunk 2o77, including two versions of The Witcher 3 (one of which has not yet been released and supports ray tracing) and free Play the card game Gwent. The latter was leaked online, while the first two were auctioned on the dark web. They were quickly sold for about 7 million US dollars.
“Although we very much want to deliver Patch 1.2 for Cyberpunk 2077 within the time we detailed earlier, the recent cyber attack on the studio’s IT infrastructure and the wide range of updates mean that this will not happen. We will need more time,” CD Projekt wrote.
“Our goal for patch 1.2 is beyond any of our previous updates. We have been working on a large number of overall quality improvements and fixes, but we still need to work hard to ensure that the goal is reached. With this in mind, we now plan to do so in the second half of March release.
“This is not news that we like to share, but we want to make sure that we start this update correctly. As time goes on, please stay tuned for more information. Thank you for your patience and support.”
This is the second patch that CD Projekt plans to release in 2021 after the 1.1 patch released in January. The company’s CEO Marcin Iwinski apologized for the video released by “Cyberpunk 2077.”
After patch 1.2, CD Projekt intends to launch “multiple updates and improvements” as well as free DLC and next-generation console upgrades.
While trying to fix certain features of Cyberpunk 2077, patch 1.1 introduced a new game-breaking bug.
