[UPDATE November 10, 2020, 2:42 PM PST]: After some speculation due to an unverified leak and the changing around of some assets on Twitter, CD Projekt Red has seemingly confirmed that that the whole “delay” situation was much ado about nothing.

When asked directly by IGN why the release date was seemingly removed from their Twitter account, which happened after the leak below occurred, CD Projekt Red said in a statement to the outlet that it was changing around its assets in order to better reflect the Dec 10 release date.

“As a rule, we don’t comment on rumors or speculation, but I will confirm we were just taking time to update all of our assets to reflect the new launch date of December 10th.”

This statement seemingly reaffirms the December 10 release date. While things can obviously change up until that point, it seems like that’s the official word for now.

Original story follows…


Even though the highly anticipated first-person RPG Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed numerous times, a new rumor has suggested that the game will once again be getting pushed back, this time into 2021, although the details are a bit sketchy.

At this point, Cyberpunk 2077 is known for three things: it’s amazing-looking open world, Keanu Reeves, and it’s many, many delays. Originally supposed to released in April 2020, the game has now been pushed back three times and has had four seperate release dates.

While many fans thought its delay to November would be its last, especially with the game going “gold”, that turned out not to be the case when CD Projekt Red shocked the gaming community and announced its delay to December 2020, with the developer citing problems with the current-gen version of the game. Now, it seems like this might not be the last if a new rumor is to be believed.

Recently, a Twitter user by the name of Tiffany Treadmore hinted that Cyberpunk 2077 may indeed be getting delayed to 2021. According to GameRevolution, who originally reported this story, this user is a reliable leaker and correctly predicted a previous Nintendo Direct date, as well as E3 2020’s cancellation.

The tweet doesn’t outright say that Cyberpunk will get delayed again but rather asks in a very suspicious way what people how people will react if it happens. The way she words the tweet and the subsequent follow-up tweet, hints that the user may indeed have some sort of insider information, stating that they’ve heard “unhappy things.”

That being said, it’s important to take this with a MASSIVE grain of salt. While this person has correctly leaked certain things in the past, they have far from an extremely reputable source who gets everything right. On top of that, previous rumors indicate that the developers at CDPR don’t know about the delays until they are announced, questioning this source even further.

That being said, it wouldn’t be shocking if the game was indeed delayed again. It is very clearly having a troubled development cycle in one way, shape, or form, so another delay, now into 2021, isn’t that hard of a thought to wrap one’s head around. At this point, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Cyberpunk 2077 patch 1.2 delayed due to cyber attack

CD Projekt Red has confirmed that the next major update for Cyberpunk 2077, patch 1.2, has been delayed due to the recent cyber attacks on the developers and will now be launching sometime in the latter half of March 2021.

Cyberpunk was plagued with bugs when it first launched and that came after multiple delays to the release date, so waiting longer than expected for things to happen is not uncommon in this world.

Players were struck with another blow on February 24, as CD Projekt Red announced on Twitter that the release of Patch 1.2 had been pushed back a month, with the “second half of March” 2021 pencilled in as its new release window.

Cyberpunk patch 1.2 delayed

According to the dev team, the recent cyber attack on the studio, which resulted in the source code for major CDPR games getting leaked, is the culprit behind this delay.

“The recent cyber attack on the studio’s IT infrastructure and extensive scope of the update mean this unfortunately will not happen,” CD Projekt Red said in a tweet.

According to the developers, this patch will be an incredibly important one for the game, with the studio stating in a follow-up tweet that it goes “beyond any of our previous updates”. Update 1.2 will makes “numerous” quality of life improvements and fixes, so its delay is definitely unfortunate.

Cyberpunk 2077 still suffers from a number of bugs and issues even three months after the game released, so fans had been looking forward to what this big patch had to offer. Unfortunately, they’ll have to wait just a bit longer.

It’s currently unknown what the exact release date for the patch is now. That being said, based on the timeline they released, fans should expect the patch sometime between March 15 and March 31, 2021.
