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.
