CD Projekt Red has unleashed Patch 1.1 for Cyberpunk 2077 on consoles, PC, and Stadia. The new update introduces stability improvements and more.
CD Projekt Red just released the latest update for Cyberpunk 2077 on consoles, Google Stadia, and PC, introducing a host of stability improvements and bug fixes. The new update, Patch 1.1, is right on time, too. Upon announcing a delay for Cyberpunk 2077’s free DLC, studio co-founder Marcin Iwiński promised another patch would go live within 10 days. Lo and behold, the team managed to deliver the update on day nine.
The open-world sci-fi title received quite a few major patches following its release last month. A litany of notable fixes were necessary to bring the experience to a stable state across multiple platforms. However, PS4 and Xbox One consoles suffered the worst at launch. Subpar graphics, dismal frame rates, and regular crashes plagued many a Cyberpunk 2077 player on last-gen hardware. Before long, CD Projekt Red found itself mired in controversy, complete with refund-related drama that caused Sony to remove the long-awaited title from its PlayStation storefront. While CDPR and Sony are working to return Cyberpunk 2077 to the PS Store, there’s still no word on when such a change will take effect.

CD Projekt Red’s latest patch for Cyberpunk 2077, Patch 1.1, lays the groundwork for future fixes. It also ushers in a wide range of stability improvements and bug fixes. In terms of stability, Patch 1.1 specifically tackles crashes related to loading saves and opening/closing the game. Stability improvements additionally center on tweaking memory usage within various game systems, such as AI, street traffic, the minimap, in-game videos, and so on. Myriad bug fixes should be resolved now, as well. According to 1.1’s patch notes, a number of hitches concerning the UI, visuals, and open-world/quests were addressed. Platform-specific issues feature in the latest update, too. For instance, PS4 users should experience fewer crashes, while Xbox consoles received “improved memory usage.”
Since there’s at least one more major update set to arrive fairly soon, Patch 1.1 probably won’t solve every lingering issue. Still, things should be vastly improved now. Players aren’t the only ones interested in whether these changes move the needle, either. The Polish Office of Competition and Consumer Protection (UOKiK) is keeping a close eye on Cyberpunk 2077’s updates, too. A translated statement from agency spokesperson Małgorzata Cieloch indicates the studio will get an opportunity to address what went wrong. Should the agency’s decision not favor CDPR, though, the company could receive a hefty fine.
A couple of class-action lawsuits may land the Cyberpunk 2077 developer in even more hot water. Like the first, the second civil suit filed against CDPR accuses the company of misleading its investors about the state of the project on last-generation hardware. CDPR maintains that it will vigorously defend itself against all such allegations.
