Cyberpunk 2077 is a mess, but a recent update makes up for some of the most persistent problems.
Cyberpunk 2077’s launch was anything but smooth. This led to refunds and even a lawsuit. But aside from the terrible performance on last-gen consoles, all the hatred seemed a bit over the top. After all, the most recent update fixes some of the most persistent bugs that have plagued the game.
Cyberpunk 2077 update 1.06
The most recent update, hotfix 1.06, fixes some annoying bugs for Cyberpunk 2077. Most importantly, the bug that caused saves to corrupt games. Before you party, the game is still not where it should be. But it is certainly good news.
It was all due to the save files, which were larger than 8MB and Cyberpunk could no longer read the file. The update removes the restriction of save files, keeping you safe from losing all your progress. Small drawback; if save files are already corrupt, this update cannot do anything about it.
Furthermore, the update also fixes performance issues for Cyberpunk 2077 on consoles. The way the game uses RAM has improved somewhat. As a result, crashes should occur less often.
This has solved some very persistent problems for both PC and console. That does not mean that CD Project Red still has a lot of work to do. Last-gen consoles can still hardly handle the game and performance optimizations are also more than welcome for next-gen and PC.
