Cyberpunk 2077’s Latest Update Fixes Quest Issue and Item Randomization
The update is available for download now.
CD Projekt Red are now clearly hard at work fixing Cyberpunk 2077. After a giant apology video from one of the studio’s co-founders, Marcin Iwiński, the company laid out a roadmap, pledging to fix the issues with the game. The roadmap promised both update 1.1 and 1.2, before further “updates and improvements” and the release of free DLCs.
Hotfix 1.11 restores item randomization to its previous state and also fixes an issue in the Down on the Street quest. Within the quest, players would enter a holocall with Goro Takemura, however, the call would be missing dialogue options and block interactions with different NPCs. This stopped players being able to progress through the game.
CD Projekt Red’s hand has been forced into these apologies and updates due to the state the game initially launched in. A number of game-breaking bugs, horrendous visual glitches and major performance issues on last-gen consoles.
These problems have caused a variety of further issues for the Polish studio. They are facing a potentially massive fine from Poland’s Office of Competition and Consumer Protection (UOKiK), a number of class-action lawsuits and the removal of the game from the PS4 and PS5 stores. Alongside this, CD Projekt Red has been forced into refunding a huge number of copies of Cyberpunk 2077. This myriad of issues caused the studio’s founders to lose a whopping $1 billion between them.
Despite the issues, however, Cyberpunk 2077’s commercial launch was extremely successful. The game instantly recouped its development costs, sold over 13 million units in the first ten days and topped a variety of sales charts.
