Since the troubled launch of Cyberpunk 2077, games studio CD Projekt Red has been applying patches to fix the many issues plaguing the game. The company has now released patch 1.23, which brings a laundry list of fixes for quests, gameplay, visuals, stability, and more. Announced today on Twitter and the Cyberpunk 2077 website, patch 1.23 seems to focus on the open world quests and missions you complete through the main storyline. In total, there are 17 different missions that have one or more fixes, so we will not list them all, but here are a couple of the big ones: The Heist Fixed an issue where Jackie could go through glass. Fixed an issue preventing some guards from attacking the player.... Read more...
In terms of PR and gamer experience, Cyberpunk 2077 flopped out of the gate with a plague of glitches and multiple undelivered features. On the other side of the equation, the game still made quite a bit of money for CD Projekt Red, even in the face of game returns and Sony refusing to sell the game on its platform. Now, the company executives who pushed this game out the door will receive millions in bonuses, while the developers at the grindstone will get significantly less. Top executives of gaming companies receiving massive bonuses while the employees on the floor get by with less is something of a recurring issue. In March, we reported on Activision-Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick possibly getting... Read more...
As time goes on, Cyberpunk 2077 is slowly working its way toward the game it should have been upon launch. New features are being added, and with them come new bugs and interesting glitches such as the ones we saw earlier this month. Now, CD Projekt Red has released Hotfix 1.22 to bring some much-needed fixes to the game and improvements to stability and performance on all platforms. Quests and Open World Fixes It can become immensely annoying to be stuck in an area or have your character glitch out to where you can no longer use weapons. Thankfully, players report issues as they come up, and CDPR is quashing the most prevalent ones. This hotfix comes with seven new fixes to make quests and open-world... Read more...
Cyberpunk 2077’s Patch 1.2 recently went live, bringing dozens of bug fixes and updates across PC and console platforms  As with Patch 1.1 bringing new game-breaking bugs, Patch 1.2 does the same, and players are taking notice. It seems Cyberpunk 2077 updates have become a horrendous whack-a-mole game where CD Projekt Red fixes some issues, but others pop up elsewhere. While Patch 1.2 may have introduced optimizations, especially for consoles, it certainly has its fair share of new issues possibly stemming from new features. The Cyberpunk 2077 gaming subreddit is the main hub for information (and memes) about the game, and all players can do is post the glitches found with the new... Read more...
While it may have been the most hyped-up game in and before 2020, Cyberpunk 2077 certainly got off to a rather rocky start. Bugs and glitches were rampant, performance was not the greatest (especially on consoles), and many customers were left unhappy. Now, after several patches and upcoming updates, the game is in a fairly solid state. When all is said and done, it seems that CD Projekt Red has learned some lessons for the future. During CDPR’s strategy video shown below, the company went over what went wrong during the development and marketing of Cyberpunk 2077. Adam Kicinski explained that the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 did not meet CDPR's  core values which include quality at the... Read more...
Yesterday, Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red revealed that it would be delaying the highly anticipated v1.2 Patch. Cyberpunk 2077 v1.2 is supposed to bring another round of bug fixes and performance improvements for the troubled game. At the time, CDPR would only say that the cyberattack earlier this month was responsible for the setback. However, we're learning today the full extent of the cyberattack. According to Bloomberg's new report, CPDR locked remote employees out of their on-site workstations ever since the initial February 9th attack. This step was taken by CDPR as a security precaution, as it noted in a February 17th statement to employees:... Read more...
Unfortunately, we have more bad news for Cyberpunk 2077 fans waiting for the planned February release of the next major game patch. Cyberpunk 2077 launched with a wealth of negative attention due to performance issues on previous generation consoles and a plethora of bugs. Developer CD Projekt Red (CDPR) addressed some of those lingering issues with hotfixes and released the massive Patch 1.1 in January. The company promised that the second big update -- Patch 1.2 -- would follow-up in February. Unfortunately, the cyberattack against CDPR that occurred earlier this month appears to have torpedoed those plans, as Patch 1.2 will now be released in March. In a tweet this morning, CDPR explained... Read more...
Back in early February, CD Projekt Red was the unfortunate victim of a network breach, which allowed hackers to make off with source code for some of its most popular games -- including the recently released Cyberpunk 2077. The perpetrators of the heist reportedly sold the source code for Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3 to an unnamed party on February 11th. Since that time, the source code has been leaked to the internet, with several brazen individuals posting links via Twitter. To combat these latest leaks of its source code, CDPR is issuing DMCA takedown notices for the tweets. Motherboard was able to obtain the text of one of these notices, which stated, “Description of infringement:... Read more...
Things have gone from bad to worse for the folks at CD Project Red. As if the company's escapades with the disastrous launch of Cyberpunk 2077 weren't bad enough (along with hotfixes that ended up breaking the game), it was revealed this week that hackers had gained access to the company's internal servers and made off with source code for its most popular games. Yesterday, we learned that the hackers were auctioning off source code for both Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3. They started the auction at $1,000,000 and expected to get the bidding to skyrocket from interested parties. However, the CDPR hackers have permanently closed the auction because an outside offer was made that was... Read more...
Over the weekend, we reported that CD Projekt Red issued its first major patch for Cyberpunk 2077 to address a truckload of bugs and performance issues that have plagued all versions of the game. The Cyberpunk 2077 v1.1 patch brought better memory management, which addressed many crashing and performance issues, along with fixes for glitches that prevented the completion of roughly a dozen missions. But for all the strides that CD Projekt Red made with the v1.1 patch, it also introduced some new bugs at the same time. One such bug involves the "Down on the Street" mission, in which in-game character Takemura holocalls you for assistance. However, the newly introduced glitch kills the... Read more...
Cyberpunk 2077 launched in early December to much fanfare, but that excitement and hype around the game was short-lived after scores of bugs and performance issues cropped up with the game... primarily with Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game. It’s been a wild month for developer CD Projekt Red as it deals with the fallout from the launch (including a couple of class-action lawsuits). Given the negativity that has been surrounding the game over the past month, it should come as no surprise that prices have been steadily dropping. Prices have fallen to the point where Cyberpunk 2077 can be had for just $34.99 from both Amazon and Best Buy. We're normally not used to... Read more...
Things on the Cyberpunk 2077 front have started to settle down a bit after its highly anticipated launch was marred by dozens of bugs and performance/crashing nightmares on previous generation PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. Things got so bad that refunds had to be issued for the game, and developer CD Projekt Red (CDPR) is facing multiple class action lawsuits for allegedly misleading investors. During all the Cyberpunk 2077 launch drama, CDPR affirmed that it would release two major updates to address lingering problems with the games: one in January and one in February. Well, CDPR today confirmed that the first of these updates will land within the next 10 days... Read more...
It never fails that when a game launches, players find a way to play it in ways that the developer never intended. Whether it's perfect Marine splits against Banelings in StarCraft II or rocket jumps in Quake III Arena, the best players can execute some incredible moves perfectly. Once again, the inevitable has happened, this time in Cyberpunk 2077. It seems that speed runners have found a way to get around Night City quick like a bunny without using any vehicles in CD Projekt Red's multi-million selling smash hit.  An in-game cybernetic implant called the Kerenzikov (installable by Victor Vektor the Ripperdoc) allows players to aim and shoot while dodging and gain a 1.5 second time slowdown...

Cyberpunk 2077 has been in the news for a variety of reasons; most of which weren’t by any means good. Most recently, developer CD Projekt Red (CDPR) has found itself the target of two class action lawsuits alleging that investors were misled over undisclosed [show-stopping] issues with the game prior to release. As players start wading deeper into Cyberpunk 2077's Night City, they are beginning to learn more about features that were seemingly cut in order to get the game out to the masses in a timely fashion. One of them is what looks to be an above-ground railway system that would have been accessible by players.  Redditor Sybekul was able to hop onto the tracks and... Read more...
CD Projekt Red (CDPR) is in hot water. The company has been working for the past 8 years on Cyberpunk 2077, only to release the game loaded with bugs, performance issues across all platforms, and graphics that were woefully inadequate on previous generation consoles. Besides drawing the ire of gamers who've had to put up with the shortcomings of the game at release, CDPR is also contending with flak from its investors (not to mention, an influx of refunds). CDPR is now facing multiple class action lawsuits, with one of them being brought forth on behalf of investor Andrew Trampe by the Rosen Law Firm [PDF]. It's alleged that CDPR executives willfully neglected to inform investors of... Read more...
Earlier this week, be brought you news of a rather nasty bug in Cyberpunk 2077 (to go along with dozens of nasty bugs in the game), which resulted in corrupted save game files. At the heart of the matter was a hard limit that developer CD Projekt Red (CDPR) imposed on the save game file size, which was set at just 8MB. Unfortunately for gamers that crafted and collected numerous items in the game, going over this 8MB limit -- through no fault of their own -- would result in the save game becoming corrupted. Once this happened, all progress would be lost and the game would refuse to load the save file. Gamers were understandably furious about the bug, with many having lost hours of work that...

Cyberpunk 2077 has faced its fair share of criticism ever since it launched earlier this month, and rightfully so. CD Projekt Red (CDPR) even admitted that management pushed the game out the door ahead of the holiday rush (which has resulted a litany of bugs), and that it obfuscated how the game looked and performed on previous generation consoles prior to release. That last point ensured that PlayStation 4 and Xbox One gamers had no idea of what they were getting themselves into. The latest problem plaguing Cyberpunk 2077 has to do with save files, or more specifically, how they can become permanently corrupted. If the save file increases to larger than 8MB, it will become damaged,... Read more...
The refund situation over regarding Cyberpunk 2077 is starting to get a bit murkier... at least if you bought the PlayStation 4 version of the game. Earlier this week, developer CD Projekt Red (CDPR) addressed the controversy over poor performance, numerous bugs, and horrible graphics on previous generation consoles by telling customers that they could request a refund. "We'd would appreciate it if you would give us a chance, but if you are not pleased with the game on your console and don't want to wait for updates, you can opt to refund your copy," said CDPR in a tweet on Monday. "For copies purchased digitally, please use the refund system of PSN or Xbox respectively."... Read more...
There's no question that Cyberpunk 2077 is an incredibly demanding game that can bring even the most well-stacked systems to its knees with the resolution and all graphics settings maxed out. But while gamers on PC (with recommended hardware), PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X can at least get decent performance and visuals out the game, those with previous-generation Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles have been subjected to an ugly, bug-filled mess of a game. With this in mind, developer CD Projekt Red (CDPR) has been taking a lot of flak from the gaming community for Cyberpunk 2077 bugs, and how awful is looks on older consoles. Not surprisingly, CDPR co-CEO Adam Kiciński... Read more...
Cyberpunk 2077 may have been one of the most highly anticipated games of 2020 (if not, the most anticipated), but last week's launch was marred by a slew of bugs and performance issues across PC and console platforms. The platforms that were hardest hit, however, were the original Xbox One and PlayStation 4, which don't really have the horsepower to play Cyberpunk 2077 in its full glory. Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red (CDPR) has heard your complaints, and is going beyond its original promise to patch the hell out of the game to make it playable and actually enjoyable for the gaming masses. It posted a tweet early this morning indicating that players can now ask... Read more...
