A new Cyberpunk 2077 hotfix is available across all platforms right now, which includes fixes that were missed in the last major patch for the game. According to CD Projekt Red, this includes several glitches involving Johnny Silverhand’s appearance, tweaks to NPCs’ clothing, and memory management improvements on PS5.
Cyberpunk players can also find a retrofix for a problem that was fixed in patch 1.21, which caused Takemura to get stuck in Japantown Docks during the Down on the Street mission. Other major quests issues were also adjusted within this patch.
Most of the fixes did involve problems related to missions, alongside just general stability and performance improvements. You can see the full list of changes below:

Although Cyberpunk 2077 had some backlash at the start of its life, CDPR still managed have record sales numbers in 2020, selling 13 million copies of the game. This is even factoring in refunds. While, CD Projekt Red should have been celebrating, it was met with frustration from the players, since last-gen users felt they were sold a lemon. Sony even pulled the game from being sold on PSN.
