Remember the famous February patch for Cyberpunk 2077, announced by CD Projekt Red when the studio talked to players about what will be the near future of the game? Here, it will not arrive in February, and the cause is the hacker attack suffered by CDPR in early February.
Earlier this month, the Polish software house confirmed that it has being hit by a hacker attack, which led to the dissemination of the source code of Cyberpunk 2077, an unedited version of The Witcher 3, the Gwent encoding and other important and sensitive information. Since then, the studio has been working to fix the damage from the attack, and this unfortunately led to a noticeable slowdown in handling the Cyberpunk 2077 February patch that didn’t get completed in time.
The studio took to Twitter to announce the postponement to players:
Although we clearly wanted to publish the Patch 1.2 for Cyberpunk 2077 in the time period described above, the recent cyber attack on the studio infrastructure and the importance of the upgrade forced the postponement.
“Our goal for patch 1.2 goes beyond our previous updates”continues the post. “We have worked on a number of general quality improvements and fixes and we still have work to do to ensure the quality of what you get.”
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. 1/3

The arrival of the patch is therefore postponed to the middle of March, and it will be a very important update. The update will in fact address numerous problems of Cyberpunk 2077, and with it the developers intend to significantly improve the game after the numerous criticisms received in December at the time of launch.
Those weren’t easy months for CD Projekt Red, but it looks like the studio is slowly getting back to normal. At the end of January, in fact, the value of the shares of the Polish software house returned to good levels.
