Cyberpunk 2077’s Patch 1.2 is finally coming — and it’s massive

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.

Patch 1.2 for Cyberpunk 2077 is coming soon! Here’s a list of the most notable changes coming in this update:

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.

CD Projekt Red isn’t slowing down, for better or worse

The past year-and-a-half havs not been kind to Polish developer CD Projekt Red. The studio -- part of CD Projekt Group, a company that also owns the online games marketplace GOG -- faced enormous criticism with the release of Cyberpunk 2077 and has since been busy fixing the game. In the time since, the studio has faced setback after setback, with its announcements leaning more toward a project being delayed rather than good news for fans.

Outwardly though, the company is appearing to shake off the dust of Cyberpunk 2077. While its short-term ambitions are pointed exclusively at past releases, the studio has future plans. It's looking forward -- and in a big way. A recent earnings report from the company revealed that it's working on numerous unannounced projects, one of which is being co-developed by another studio, The Molasses Flood, and will be based on one of CD Projekt Red's franchises.
Flooding the pipeline
CD Projekt Red's current content plans seek to reinforce what the studio already has out there. Cyberpunk 2077 recently received a current-gen update and will get its first major story expansion next year. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is also set to get its own current-gen update, though its release date has been postponed indefinitely following CD Projekt Red's decision to bring development in-house.
