CDPR Releases Patch 1.1 for Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077 just got its first significant fix in the form of a patch. Earlier today, CDPR released Patch 1.1 for Cyberpunk 2077. The patch is available for PC, consoles, and Google Stadia.

It is no secret that Cyperpunk 2077’s launch was an absolute disaster. The game launched with various bugs and performance issues that the developers allegedly knew about. The situation got so worse that Sony removed the game from their online stores. But now, it seems like things are starting to look up for Cyberpunk 2077. CDPR released the first significant update to the game in the form of a patch intended to fix the buggy game.

CDPR released Patch 1.1 for Cyberpunk 2077. The patch is intended to fix bugs, make various stability improvements to the game, and lay the foundation for further updates.

In the patch’s announcement, CDPR said,

“In this update we focused on various stability improvements, which you can find outlined in the patch notes below.”

The patch is now live and available for PC, consoles, and Stadia. It is roughly sized around 5.4 GB on Steam and a lighter 1.1 GB on GOG.

According to CDPR, the patch intends to make various stability improvements in the game in general. Moreover, it includes platform-specific changes as well.

For the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, there is a performance optimization for crowds. For the Xbox consoles, improvements have been made regarding the memory usage for character creation, mirrors, scanning, camera remote control, and menus.
