Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.1 Available Now

Cyberpunk 2077

CD Projekt Red have released patch 1.1 for Cyberpunk 2077, the first major patch for the troubled game.

Available across all platforms, the patch introduces with stability (such as memory usage improvements and crash fixes), and numerous glitches across the game. These include quests, the open world, UI, graphical, achievements, and platform specific.  The infamous save-corrupting glitch born from save files becoming too large (usually from crafting items) was also one of the patch fixes.

The patch’s size reportedly [1, 2, 3, 4] is up to 10GB on Windows PC (though much smaller through GOG), and roughly 17 GB on consoles. You can find the full patch notes here. Patch 1.2 is already in development.

As previously reported, the game’s numerous delays and leaked footage were not the end of the woes for CD Projekt Red. One reviewer suffered a major epileptic seizure, and accused the developer on basing the Braindance headset off a medical device designed to intentionally induce seizures.

Despite high praise from initial reviews, users complained of Cyberpunk 2077‘s numerous glitches and bugs; along with poor optimization, and the console version having inferior graphics and more bugs. Even critic reviews that praised the game also discussed those issues.

CD Projekt Red stock value dropped by 29% in a week after the game launched. As aforementioned, the developer also had to recommend fans to complete the game quickly and avoid crafting too many items to prevent save file corruption, which was later patched.

CD Projekt Red apologized for the game’s advertising and launch, and offered full refunds. However, two lawsuits have been launched by investors- one in Poland also being an attorney.

A Q&A investor call reportedly had CD Projekt Red denying they had any special agreements for refunds for Cyberpunk 2077 on consoles, and that they were working on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game “until the very last minute.” The game’s director would later deny claims about development troubles made in a Bloomberg report that cited anonymous employees.

Both Sony and Microsoft stated they would offer full refunds for the game. Sony would remove the game from the PlayStation Store, but there were “no talks” of Microsoft removing it from theirs.

Despite selling 13 million copies, the founders of developer CD Projekt Red were predicted to have lost $1 billion USD. The company also shared their “Commitment to Quality” agenda, and FAQ trying to explain how the issues came about. The Polish Office of Competition and Consumer Protection (UOKiK) is also monitoring CD Projekt.

Cyberpunk 2077 is available on Windows PC (via Epic GamesGOG, and Steam), PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia. The game is also coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S in 2021, and players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One respectively will be able to upgrade to the next-gen for free.
