Cyberpunk 2077 Gets Big Patch Ahead of Return to PlayStation Store

The patch comes four days before the game is available to download on PSN again.

If you hadn’t heard, Cyberpunk 2077 is coming back to the PlayStation Store next week after being delisted following its bug-ridden launch. Sony said it fully expects anyone playing on a base PlayStation 4 will still run into technical issues and recommends anyone looking to download Cyberpunk 2077 do so on a PlayStation 4 Pro or a PlayStation 5. But developer CD Projekt Red is still working on fixes for various glitches and is releasing another patch ahead of the game’s relisting on June 21.

Patch 1.23 is live today, and like previous patches, its update notes are pretty lengthy. Much of the breakdown is dedicated to quest fixes, but there’s also a handful of PC and Xbox-specific changes at the end. Interestingly enough, there’s nothing about any PlayStation-specific changes considering this is before the game comes back to the PlayStation Store.
