CD Projekt RED has been readying the next major update to Cyberpunk 2077 for some time now, with Patch 1.2 slated to land in February. However, the studio today revealed that it has changed the timetable, with the update now coming to all platforms in the second half of March, if the new plans don't experience any hitches.

The recent cyberattack on CD Projekt is partly to blame for this delay according to the Polish company. The attack left its internal systems compromised, servers encrypted, and some internal data leaked. The studio was already in the process of restoring the encrypted data when the announcement came through, but the process has obviously affected the development flow.

The upcoming update is reportedly much larger in scope than previous updates as well, which is also a cause for the delay. The studio added that "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."

So far, CD Projekt RED has released one major Cyberpunk 2077 update aimed at increasing performance and squashing bugs. There have also been several hotfixes for resolving urgent issues. The studio's roadmap for the RPG has it pushing out multiple updates, free DLC, as well as the next-gen console upgrade in 2021.
