How to fix Steam not downloading Cyberpunk 2077

The Cyberpunk 2077 download error on Steam has been addressed by the Valve platform, with it acknowledging that players are experiencing issues.

According to Steam, the issue isn’t related to the download but is instead a problem with Steam’s display. The platform is telling players  that no download is happening, though it is actually unpacking the encrypted data from your pre-load.

Players can ensure that this is the case by checking the status of their downloads in Steam. In order to do this, follow these steps:

  • Go to View
  • Go to Downloads
  • Check Disk Usage

If you can see disk activity on Steam, this means that data for Cyberpunk 2077 is unpacking, so the game is still installing even if it doesn’t appear as such in your library.

If there is still disk activity for the game in Steam, then you will need to wait it out for the game to finish unpacking. This issue should only affect those who pre-loaded the game ahead of time, as players first downloading the game at launch will instead perform the download in its entirety.

After you’ve finished installing Cyberpunk 2077, you’ll want to ensure that you have the best PC settings selected in order to optimize the game’s performance and visual quality. Additionally, you may want to learn how to speed up the game’s often lengthy loading times and fix some pesky visual issues the RPG is experiencing at launch.
