Once again, CD Projekt Red will not keep its promises. While the Polish studio had promised a roadmap to restore the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Cyberpunk 2077 with fairly specific dates for the deployment of these major corrective patches, we learn through a series of tweets that the agenda will not be respected. The reasons given? The recent cyber attack on the infrastructure that allowed hackers (named Hello Kitty) to steal data from some of the studio’s games. We don’t really see the connection between data theft and being on time to release a corrective patch, but that’s the excuse found on the part of the executives to ask for more time from players to do not fall on them.
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

While we really wanted to launch Cyberpunk 2077 patch 1.2 in the time frame we detailed previously, the recent cyber attack on the studio’s IT infrastructure plus the importance of the next update means that the patch won’t come out on time – we need some extra time.
Real excuse or false pretext to save time, especially when we know that some people had announced that the dates of the roadmap would not be respected, still it is that this patch 1.2 was one of the most important, since it had to correct entire areas of the game and eliminate annoying bugs. We remember that patch 1.1 launched in January resulted in a major bug that prevented players from moving forward in the adventure. If CD Projekt Red reacted very quickly, for 1.2, the studio announces a release between March 15 and March 31, provided that this may change further. We obviously hope that all this is not just a transverse flute symphony, but given the lying liabilities of the studio, we are not immune to a new trick …
