IN A NUTSHELL:
- It looks like testing of a new patch for Cyberpunk 2077 has begun;
- Major patch 1.2 is due to be released in February, aiming to eliminate most of the major issues with the game (primarily on consoles).
It looks like the developers from CD Projekt RED started testing the latest update for Cyberpunk 2077 several hours ago. The patch was discovered on Steam by a Reddit forum user known as Aresenic_Touch (below is a screenshot showing the so-called branch with the new patch).
It's worth reminding that another big patch is planned for February, numbered 1.2, which - according to studio's representatives - is supposed to fix most of the game's major problems and, most of all, bring the console editions to an acceptable condition. A recent hacker attack forced the devs to restore data from backups and probably had a negative impact on the work schedule, but it looks like the developers are determined to keep their promise to the players. Let's hope they succeed, because dropping player ratings on Steam suggest that the title in question really needs a good patch.
Cyberpunk 2077 launched on December 10, 2020 and met with mixed reception from gamers and reviewers. The PC version of the game was praised and performed really well, but the condition of the console editions left a lot to be desired, mainly due to poor optimization. Users of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions encountered the biggest problems.
