We have new information about the Cyberpunk 1.2 update and wether it's due to release this month or not.
Cyberpunk 2077 has gotten off to a rocky start, with the game being removed from the PlayStation Store shortly after launch and it still hasn't been added back.
More recently, CD Projekt Red was hacked and the source code for Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher 3, and other games were stolen and sold on the dark web.
With all that being said, is the 1.2 update still coming to Cyberpunk 2077?
LATEST - Update Pushed Back
Yep. Sadly, Cyberpunk developers CDPR have released a statement on social media detailing their decision to push back the 1.2 Update until the second half of March.
You can check out what they said below:
This tweet is followed by the following statement:
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.
Unfortunately, we don't have a specific release date yet but we expect there to be further mention of that over the next week.
When Will The 1.2 Update Be Released?
Ahead of the Cyberpunk 1.1 update last month, CDPR released a roadmap for what to expect throughout 2021.
On the roadmap we can see that both the 1.1 and 1.2 updates were set to release close together.
The 1.1 update released in January 2021, with players then expecting the 1.2 update to release the following month.
While this may have been the plan for CDPR, things have changed.
Hack Delays Cyberpunk 1.2 Update
CD Projekt Red being hacked earlier this month will have understandably put the company into damage control mode, rushing to secure their servers and also assess the damage caused by the hackers.
It's since been confirmed that there will be some delay around update 1.2 in response to the hack and time lost dealing with it.
Cyberpunk Needs Fixing
While the 1.1 update fixed many issues in the game, the game is still incredibly broken as a whole, especially when it comes to the console versions of the game.
The game is still missing from the PlayStation Store, meaning many console players have yet to have an opportunity to jump into the game, although right now that might not be a bad thing.
CDPR desperately need to get the performance issues fixed with the game so players can have a stable experience while playing and then they can address all the other issues in the game.
But with the source code being stolen it is possible that we will see the community fix the game and release unofficial mods that improve a lot of the performance problems.
We have already seen the community fix the game with mods such as the Heavy Customization mod, and we will likely continue to see many more of these in the future.
