Cyberpunk 2077 patch will fix bug corrupting PS5 saves, improve performance

Cyberpunk 2077 still getting little tweaks after major improvements.

Cyberpunk 2077 is getting another patch just a couple of weeks after the 2.0 update dropped. Despite receiving a slew of gameplay overhauls and bug fixes, it can still be a glitchy game.

CD Projekt Red announced the patch on its website with fixes both platform-specific and across all releases. Most of these aren’t large improvements, ranging from adjusting radio songs’ volume to properly initiating a glitched gig. One now-fixed bug I experienced is the distorted screen effect not disappearing after the Automatic Love quest.

Two notes are particularly notable as fairly big fixes, though.

The first is a nasty bug that corrupts PS5 saves for exceeding file limits, and the studio’s solution is increasing the maximum size for files. Corrupted saves are unfortunately not recoverable, and CDPR recommends you keep a manual save before the corrupted point.

More so on the side of general improvements, performance should see a bump across all platforms, with upgrades to Dogtown, notably. It’s technically an improvement throughout Cyberpunk’s world, but Dogtown was highlighted as a notable area where issues occurred.

The post implies several smaller fixes are also on the way as CD Projekt Red mentions those noted are just the highlights. Another thing missing from the post is a specific release date for the patch other than it’s coming soon.

Cyberpunk 2077 is a far more stable release than in 2020, but it’s great that CD Projekt Red is still regularly rolling out more fixes. It’s not a surprise a content drop as big as Phantom Liberty introduced a few more problems the team is working on fixing. Hopefully, Cyberpunk 2077 will stand as a finely polished RPG by the time it’s last fixes release.
