Cyberpunk 2077 patch 2.01 is on the way and will fix common issues like corrupted saves on PS5 and improve performance on both PC and console.
Most importantly, the patch prevents memory corruption issue on PS5. However, this fix does not repair already corrupted saves, so you will need to keep an undamaged save before the patch is released. As for performance improvements, CD Projekt Red only stated that the patch will improve performance in general, but particularly in the Dogtown area.
Additionally, the patch fixes some of Phantom Liberty’s strangest and most persistent bugs. For example, selecting a specific dialogue option in the “Automatic Love” quest no longer results in a distorted effect that remains on screen longer than intended. Another absurd solution is that in The Heist, V doesn’t fall through the floor of an elevator and die when the frame rate is low.
The update also brings some quality of life changes. You can upgrade to weapon cyberware by cycling through weapons. The volume of the vehicle radio has also been changed so that it is not too quiet compared to other ambient noise.
CD Projekt Red confirmed that it will now focus on the sequel to Cyberpunk 2077, codenamed Project Orion. The full patch notes for 2.01 will be released at launch, but CD Projekt Red has listed some of the key changes. You can find this list below and on the developer’s official website.
