These Cyberpunk 2077 Patch Notes Are Long Enough to Be a College Thesis [UPDATE]

That's a lot of bugs to squash.

Did you know that if you go to the French version of the Cyberpunk 2077 website, it says the game is “parfaitement jouable,” which translates to “perfectly playable” on Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5? Truly the adverb and adjective you’d want to use for your video game that you’re selling. Well, in some places you’re still selling it. As we’re about three months out and the game is still not available on the PlayStation Network after Sony pulled it from the store.

Anyway, CD Projekt Red has released patch notes for Cyberpunk 2077’s 1.2 patch, and bulleted list of fixes is long enough to hit at least some problems you may have experienced in your respective playthroughs. But the broad strokes are that the team is working on gameplay tweaks like making driving easier and allowing you to alter sensitivity settings, ensuring characters and items spawn as they should so you won’t be caught in game-breaking bugs, and making sure the open world is functioning properly so you can navigate it without getting stuck in a wall or other object.

Check out the exhaustive list of fixes here on Cyberpunk 2077 website. As of right now, there’s no release date, but CD Projekt Red has already delayed it after a hacking situation at the company back in February. The studio also solemnly swore its staff wouldn’t have to crunch to get these updates out, so if it means those folks get some proper work/life balance, the patch can take as long as it needs to.

Speaking personally, playing Cyberpunk 2077 on a PlayStation 5 meant I didn’t have very many bugs, but I did have more than my fair share of crashes. Which, thankfully, are being addressed in Patch 1.2. I don’t know that it’s enough for me to go back and play the game, as I think I had my fill. But I do find myself thinking fondly on some of the good things CD Projekt Red did with this game, only to have the bad come back to the forefront of my brain like an intrusive thought. Weird game to think back on. Rose-colored glasses are a hell of a thing.

Update: Patch 1.2 is available now on PC and consoles, and will follow on Stadia later this week.
