Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.1 Breaks the Game

CD Projekt is working hard to fix all the bugs, crashes, and performance problems that shipped with Cyberpunk 2077. But the latest patch for the game has ended up introducing a game-breaking bug.

The first big patch for Cyberpunk 2077 was released late last week and brought with it a host of bug fixes and stability improvements. However, as Eurogamer reports, Patch 1.1 also managed to introduce a new bug that prevents the main story from progressing.

It occurs during the quest called “Down on the Street,” during which the player receives a call from the character Takemura. With Patch 1.1 installed, the call triggers, but Takemura just stares and doesn’t say anything. There’s no way to progress the call and therefore the mission, resulting in a game-breaking scenario.

CD Projekt is aware of this bug and has detailed a workaround, but it does require an earlier game save. Here’s the steps:

  1. Load a gamesave before Takemura and V leave Wakako’s office.
  2. Finish the conversation with Takemura outside the office right away
  3. Right after the finished conversation and when the quest was updated, skip 23h.
  4. See if the holocall triggers and the dialogue with Takemura starts

If that doesn’t work, apparently a hotfix is planned for “as soon as possible.” Seeing as it does break the game, I’m sure it’s a priority with the dev team and will be patched out within the next few days.
