Cyberpunk 2077’s Next Update Delayed Following Security Breach

Cyberpunk 2077 Players Will Have to Wait for Further Fixes

Earlier this month, a group of hackers held the source code for Cyberpunk 2077 for ransom from developer, CD Projekt Red, before ultimately selling it to a third-party buyer. Along with the source code for Cyberpunk 2077, the hackers sold the source codes for The Witcher 3 and Gwent as well. Luckily, no personal information was obtained. As you can imagine this has caused a bit of a problem for CD Projekt  Red so it should come as no surprise to hear the developer push back the release date for the game’s next major update.

The developer posted an update to the official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account announcing the delays:

“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.

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.

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.”

Don’t worry, patches are still coming –just not quite as quickly as we would have liked but be patient and hopefully the updates will come sooner rather than later.
