CD Projekt has announced that Update 2.02 for Cyberpunk 2077 is “coming soon” and includes a handful of bug fixes and other challenges.
The update revealed on CD Projekt Red’s support website will potentially fix the two biggest remaining issues with the Phantom Liberty and Update 2.0 versions of Cyberpunk 2077. The developer didn’t announce when update 2.02 would be released, but the latest update came a week after CD Projekt Red said it was “coming soon.”
The first issue addressed in Update 2.02 is the passive skill progression fix, as some players were not receiving the passive buffs that came with upgrading each skill level. The other major gripe for players will also be resolved soon, as CD Projekt will be rebalancing the timers in courier missions.

As part of the Phantom Liberty expansion, players will occasionally find a car that needs to be driven from the new Dog Town area to another part of Night City. However, the distances often don’t correspond to the time limit and the mission sometimes only gives players 30 seconds to traverse the entire huge map.
Here’s everything else CD Projekt Red highlighted in update 2.02, although these are just the “key fixes” and don’t necessarily represent all the changes coming.
- V no longer becomes flat after entering the Delamain AV in Path of Glory.
- Fixed shutters blocking access to Black Sapphire in Run This Town.
- Fixed an issue where Cyberware could be downgraded to level 1 after updating the game to 2.01.
- Fixed passive skill progressions.
- Timers in Courier Missions have been rebalanced.
Xbox Series players who do not receive the Phantom Liberty pre-order bonus of a Quadra Sport R-7 Vigilante are also still under investigation by CD Projekt and Microsoft, and a resolution will arrive “as soon as possible.”
Phantom Liberty was released on September 26th, with Update 2.0 laying the foundation a few days earlier. It completely overhauled Cyberpunk 2077 with features like a new perk system and improved AI, while also bringing closure to an Elon Musk fan theory, a nod to late racing legend Ken Block, and bizarre additions to the game’s biggest mystery.
CD Projekt even offered players the option to opt out of the paid expansion’s events entirely, with certain dialogue options permanently locking out the missions.
In our 9/10 review, IGN said: “Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty marks a huge turnaround for CD Projekt Red’s future role-playing game, which began with the anime spin-off Cyberpunk: Edgerunners and its latest 2.0 update.”
