Cyberpunk 2077 update 1.06 is out, and this hotfix addresses a few major issues that players have been facing. Unfortunately, as a hotfix, the Cyberpunk 2077 1.06 patch doesn’t bring sweeping changes to the game. Many of the same issues we found during our review remain. However, it is a step in the right direction.
Cyberpunk 2077 update 1.06 update patch notes
The Cyberpunk 2077 hotfix 1.06 update has a brief patch notes list:
- Dum Dum will no longer go missing from Totentanz entrance during Second Conflict.
- Improved memory management and stability, resulting in fewer crashes.
- Removed the 8 MB save file size limit. Note: this won’t fix save files corrupted before the update.
Of particular note is the PC-specific removal of the 8MB save file size limit. Upon launch, the PC version’s saves were a ticking time bomb as they would corrupt upon hitting 8MB. Many players were able to get through the game without issue, but some saw tens of hours lost when the game refused to load their saves.
We haven’t confirmed it yet, but base PS4 and Xbox One players may have a smoother experience upon updating to Cyberpunk 2077 1.06. The patch notes state that memory management has been improved, which should lead to less crashes. It’s entirely possible that the issue facing console gamers may in part be due to a memory leak, a problem with which PC players have been afflicted.
Cyberpunk 2077 update 1.06 is the third patch released since the game launched on December 10. Many feared that CD Projekt Red would take a while to fix the myriad of bugs present in the title. While there are plenty of glitches left in the game, the devs have at least started to get it to a point where it’s playable on all released platforms.
Two large patches are scheduled for January and February, according to CD Projekt Red. These updates should focus on optimizing the game further for last-gen consoles and hopefully lay the groundwork to fix some of the more broken systems present.
