Polish developer CD Projekt Red has released the first major patch for its troubled open-world game, Cyberpunk 2077. The patch 1.1 which is available on all platforms addresses “various stability improvements and bugfixes” according to the developer.
As promised by CDPR last December, patch 1.1 is the first of two large patches from the developer with the second one coming later in February. Cyberpunk 2077 has been notoriously buggy on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with Sony taking the unprecedented move of pulling the game from its PlayStation Store.
In a page detailing the specific bug fixes on different platforms, CDPR states the patch 1.1 addresses “performance optimization of crowds on PlayStation 4 Pro and PlayStation 5” and “various crash fixes on PlayStation 4.” On the Xbox, it fixes a different issue with the page stating “improved memory usage for character creation, mirrors, scanning, camera, remote control, menus (inventory, map) on Xbox One, Xbox One X and Xbox One S.”
CDPR have their work cut-out already to fix its reputation with the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 being arguably the most disastrous in gaming history. Patch 1.1 was introduced to solve major problems but it seems it has added another “potentially game-breaking bug” according to Kotaku.
The Polish studio is pushing behind talks of DLC for now and will be working on a free update to optimize the game for next-gen consoles in the second half of 2021. At the moment, its attention is focussed on making the open-world shooter game bug-free.
