CD Projekt RED dropped the first of many upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 patches over the past weekend. The Cyberpunk 2077 patch 1.1 released for all platforms and the developer listed a massive changelog of bug fixes and improvements users can hope to find while exploring Night City. These fixes include performance improvements, engine crashes and many more. Unfortunately, while CD Projekt RED was trying to fix the game, patch 1.1 also broke it by introducing yet another Down on the Street progression bug.
Up to now, many users reported that the Cyberpunk 2077 Down on the Street mission was bugged. Usually, Takemura calls the players which then progresses the game’s story. Prior to patch 1.1, players reported that Takemura never actually called them which was a bug this new patch was meant to fix. Now, instead of Takemura not phoning the player at all, he calls but says nothing on the phone.
This may sound like a simple bug but it is actually a massive issue and can mess up the same game forcing players to lose progress up to that point. In short, it means that everything players do after leaving Wakako’s office is a waste of time because the bug cannot be bypassed if they don’t load a save point before that moment. However, CD Projekt RED has reported on a workaround which is only possible if you have saved quite often in the game. Here’s what you need to do.
Cyberpunk 2077 Down on the Road Progression Bug Fix
CD Projekt RED says that players should first load a save from before V and Takemura leave Wakako’s office. Once V finished the conversation with Takemura outside the office and the next missions step appears, players must skip time for 23 hours. When the time passes the conversation between V and Takemura should begin.
We hope this workaround works for you if the bug has ruined your gameplay session with Cyberpunk 2077. You can read the full changelog of patch notes here.
