Cyberpunk 2077 1.7 Update Release Date

At the time of writing, Cyberpunk 2077 developers, CD Projekt RED, are yet to confirm the release date for the next update. Patch 1.6, called the Edgerunners update, was released on September 6th, 2022. And the previous update, the next-gen 1.5 patch, was launched in February 2022. And the update before that, patch 1.3, was released in August 2021. Judging by this cadence, which is around six months per patch, we can expect the Cyberpunk 2077 1.7 update to be released in late February or early March of 2023. The 1.7 update will quite possibly be the last major patch before the Phantom Liberty expansion arrives later in 2023.

New Features and Content in Cyberpunk 2077 1.7 Update

Not much is currently known about the content we can expect in the next Cyberpunk update. What we do know is based on teasers from the developers. Firstly, the highly-requested overhaul of the police system will be one of the main new features. Another popular feature, vehicle-to-vehicle combat, should also arrive in the 1.7 update. Game director Gabriel Amatangelo says these two new systems will give you “a whole new feel and dimension and immersion to enjoying Night City”.

Furthermore, we can expect melee combat improvements and changes to MaxTac. Finally, new actions in the perk tree and new cyberware are also in development. For now, that’s all we know about the Cyberpunk 2077 1.7 update. Of course, we will make sure to update the article as soon as new information arrives.

Nikola's been playing video games since his father bought him the NES and the Sega Mega Drive in the early '90s. Later, he became a predominantly PC gamer who enjoys narrative-driven RPGs, real-time strategies, and psychological/survival horror games. Nevertheless, he appreciates any game that's worth his time.With over 12 years of experience in esports & gaming journalism, I like to think that my guides once helped a NASA scientist to beat a game. What I'm trying to say is that I should be credited for NASA's Mars missions. (I'm just kidding, please don't shoot me). In my free time, I dream of the day when I will finally start clearing my Steam backlog.
