Stop me if you’ve heard this one before — CD Projekt Red has announced a delay for Cyberpunk 2077. Patch 1.2, which was the second of two planned major updates for the game, was supposed to release this month but has been delayed.

In a multi-post thread on Twitter, developer CD Projekt Red blamed the recent cyber attack on the studio’s IT infrastructure along with the “extensive scope” of the update for its delay. The new target release for the update is in the second half of March.

"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."

Patch 1.2 was supposed to go out this month as a major update aimed at fixing the many issues and bugs that have plagued Cyberpunk 2077 since launch. As mentioned, it was the second of two large patches CD Projekt Red had planned to fix the game’s most “prominent problems” — especially on last-gen consoles.

Cyberpunk 2077 is a mess on all consoles but ran especially poorly on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. While it ran somewhat better on next-gen systems and PC, it still had issues. The specific PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of the game have not yet been released and probably won’t be for quite some time.

The first update, patch 1.1, was released in January and did address numerous issues. But this second update was still sorely needed. It’s unfortunate that we’ll have to wait until mid-March for it to arrive.

Beyond patch 1.2 — assuming everything is fixed — fans can begin to look forward to free DLCs and eventually the next-gen console update. Of course, at this point, I think we’ll all settle for a playable game. I think we’ve all accepted the fact that those promises of a true next-gen experience won’t ever be realized.
