CD Projekt RED recently updated Cyberpunk 2077 with its latest patch 1.2. The update which came in at around 50GB on each platform contained hundreds of fixes that revolved around performance, quest bugs, glitches and so much more. No, for real. The patch notes were the longest we have ever seen for a video game ever. However, according to players, the game is still a mess.
Social media has been alit with loads of videos and posts of players sharing their Cyberpunk 2077 experience post update 1.2 and things don’t look good. These issues range from the ability to spawned multiple cars on top of each other at once which causes them to bash together and explode to even more driving glitches. One video I watched related to new NPC glitches where the player makes them all despawn by just turning around. This being something that was meant to be fixed.
Even the police, which were a big focus for Cyberpunk 2077 patch 1.2 seem to be bugged out. During some car chases, the police instantly vanish into thin air. Other times, they completely ignore the crime which the player is committing. Players are also reporting that the cops spawn out of nowhere and get in the way of progression.
When it comes to the performance, players are also reporting major stuttering and texture load issues across the board. Visual bugs such as invisible weapons are still a thing. This is an issue that has been around since its launch back in November.

There are also reports of horrendous Cyberpunk 2077 loading times on PS5 whereas players would be driving through Night City only to have the game pause and load in the middle of a car chase. This is after players report that the initial game load takes double the amount of time compared to before the patch.
Players are also reporting that the game has been visually downgraded on PS5 and Xbox Series X. This is most likely to increase the overall performance but that has yet to be seen.
Keep in mind that the Cyberpunk 2077 patch 1.2 is one part of two major updates coming our way so let’s hope the second one fixes these issues. It is not looking good for the game right now especially given that it is still delisted from the PlayStation Store. Until these issues are fixed, PS4 and PS5 owners won’t be able to purchase it digitally.
