Black on yellow didn't appear today as CD Projekt Red seems to have realized that the meme associated with their past Cyberpunk 2077 news is not positive, but a sense of the same dread should fill you as a Cyberpunk 2077 update 1.2 delay has been announced.
Why is the Cyberpunk 2077 Update Delayed
In a statement released in a Twitter thread instead of their trademark image style, CDPR says that Cyberpunk 2077 update 1.2 won't be making its previously announced February release window. They say that this is because of the recent cyber attack that stole a lot of code from the company, allegedly including the Gwent source code which was released as proof, and the hackers then allegedly auctioned off content related to Witcher 3, and Cyberpunk 2077. This was in addition to information potentially on employees and other sensitive data. They also state that Cyberpunk 2077 update 1.2 is going to be the largest, and the "extensive scope of the update" means they cannot deliver it in the previously announced timeframe.
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. -- CD Projekt Red
When is Cyberpunk 2077 Update 1.2 Releasing?
While we don't have a firm release date for the next Cyberpunk update, we do have a new window of the second half of March 2021. This means that the patch has been delayed essentially a month, because of the size of the update and the hack according to CDPR. They state that this is "not the news we enjoy sharing" but that they "want to make sure we launch this update properly", something most people can appreciate given that the original game wasn't released properly, especially on last-generation consoles. That does beg the question if they will judge it correctly this time, as they failed to in the past.
