The next big Cyberpunk 2077 update has been delayed, with developer CD Projekt Red citing the recent cyber attack it suffered and the scale of the patch itself as causes.

Cyberpunk 2077 update 1.2 never had an official release date set, but CD Projekt Red said back in January that it would be released "in the following weeks" after update 1.1, which arrived on January 23. According to the studio's revised timeline, version 1.2 is now scheduled to arrive some time in the latter half of March.

The studio is still keeping quiet about what the next big update will add or change, though it did note that it "goes beyond any of our previous updates" with "numerous overall quality improvements and fixes". Here's the full message CD Projekt Red shared on Twitter.

CD Projekt Red pledged that it would refuse to pay the hacker's ransom demands along with sharing the news of the cyberattack on its servers earlier this month. It seems the hackers made good on their threats of proliferating internal files and documents, as the company has started issuing DMCA takedown requests in an attempt to cut down on the spread of stolen source code for its games since then, according to Vice.

Even without the hack, CD Projekt Red would be in a tough spot after the troubled launch of its most-anticipated game. Hopefully Cyberpunk 2077 update 1.2 helps mark a turning point in its story - we'll keep you updated as we learn more about what it will include and when it's set to arrive.

Fans aren't waiting - this 11 GB mod is meant to fix Cyberpunk 2077's audio quality issues.
