A new Cyberpunk 2077 hotfix is available on PC, consoles, and Stadia. According to developer CD Projekt Red, the update fixes the most frequently reported issues that the last big patch didn’t catch and adds further improvements to the stability and performance of the game. Some of the issues that have been addressed include fixing the glitches around Johnny Silverhand’s appearance after buying the Nomad car from Lana, various tweaks related to clipping in NPCs’ clothes, and memory management improvements on PS5.
Players can also find a retrofix for an issue that was fixed in patch 1.21, which caused Takemura to get stuck in the Japantown Docks during the Down on the Street mission, a glitch that prevented a player from using weapons and consumables after interacting with a maintenance panel in the Riders on the Storm mission has been resolved.

Despite the controversy surrounding a less than optimal launch, CDPR still saw record sales last year. Cyberpunk 2077 sold more than 13 million copies in 2020 alone after refunds were factored into its sales figures, making it one of the most successful RPG launches in history. That celebration was tainted by a number of issues that were especially pronounced on last-generation consoles, resulting in Sony pulling the game from sale on PSN.
CDPR has since then explained the game’s numerous technical issues while continuing to support it with numerous patches, and has also promised to change how it operates in the future.
