Back in December following the backlash and reaction to the release state of Cyberpunk 2077, especially on legacy consoles Xbox One/X and PS4 and PS4 Pro, CD Projekt Red said that 2021 would begin with two large udpates to fix and improve the quality of the game experience, in particular for the last gen consoles. But today following the recent Cyber-Attack at CD Projekt Red which saw source code for their games as well as internal files stolen and servers hijacked, it has not been confirmed that the large 1.2 update that was planned for February has now been delayed until at least March:
This twitter thread, CD Prokekt Red explained:
“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.“
Now all of this sucks, and no matter how you feel about the launch of Cyberpunk 2077, the company and its employees certainly did not deserve this new problem very much making things worse for them and for fans who are still after 2 months, waiting to play a game they may have purchased on release. At time of posting, Cyberpunk 2077 is still not listed on the PlayStation store for PS4 or PS5.
