The news rarely stops in the world of video games, and today, we’ve got another batch to take a look at. The newest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate characters, Pyra and Mythra, will be shown off in more detail next week, the latest Cyberpunk 2077 update has been delayed, Valheim has reached another sales milestone, and more. Here’s the video game news you might’ve missed on Feb. 24, 2021.
Cyberpunk 2077’s Latest 1.2 Patch Has Been Delayed
In light of the recent CD Projekt cyber attack, the studio is delaying Cyberpunk 2077‘s 1.2 patch — which the team says will go “beyond any of” its previous updates. Patch 1.2 will now launch sometime in the second half of March 2021 and is supposed to offer a slew of additional fixes. It’s unclear if the other updates detailed in the game’s roadmap will also be delayed now.
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

A trailer for Nier Replicant ver.1.22474487139… has just been released, showing off some of the world and combat. It’s in Japanese, but you can still enjoy the video without being fluent.

It’ll launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC and serves as a remake of the original Nier Replicant, which released in 2010 in Japan.
Valheim Has Reached Yet Another Sales Milestone
It seems like each week that there’s a new major sales milestone to report on with Valheim. This week, the survival game has surpassed yet another million sales, taking its total to 4 million copies sold since its launch earlier this month. The news comes by way of a Steam post from the Iron Gate team. It announced that Valheim has now hit an all-time high of 500,000 concurrent players — a huge accomplishment for a game made by such a small studio.
