CD Projekt Red released a full list of patch notes for Cyberpunk 2077‘s upcoming 1.2 fix. While it still doesn’t have a firm release date, the studio says the patch is coming “soon.”
Patch 1.2 is the second of Cyberpunk 2077’s major overhauls meant to fix the game’s most glaring issues. The original release was so buggy on last-generation consoles that Sony removed the game from the PlayStation Store entirely. CD Projekt Red planned to release two patches at the start of 2021, but a cyberattack against the studio delayed the 1.2 patch.
The fix seems to be imminent. A blog post on CD Projekt Red’s website notes that the fix is coming soon on all platforms. The post includes a full list of patch notes which cover everything from quest updates to platform-specific fixes.

The most notable overhaul is to the game’s overall stability. CD Projekt Red says that the improvements will affect the experience on all platforms, but make the biggest difference on the last generation of consoles. Ten performance fixes are coming in total, which look to cut down on crashes through better optimization.
Other changes will affect gameplay more generally. The update makes a big overhaul to vehicle handling with a sensitivity slider and adjusted code that better deals with different framerates. Night City’s police have been tweaked too and will be better at responding to crimes.
That’s just a small snippet of what’s in store. The list of fixes is gigantic and CD Projekt Red says there are “many more” included in the update.
