Cyberpunk 2077 Hotfix on 1.1 resolves game-breaking bug
CD Projekt Red (CDPR) is hard at work in fixing the broken state of Cyberpunk 2077. Recently, they released the Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.1 which fixed a lot of issues. However, it wasn’t able to fix three major game-breaking bugs. With the Cyberpunk 2077 Hotfix 1.1, CDPR finally fixed one of the three.
CDPR FIXES DOWN ON THE STREET BUG WITH HOTFIX 1.1
The Cyberpunk 2077 Hotfix 1.1 fixed one of the major bugs in the game. Other game-breaking bugs prevented players from completing specific quests or corrupted their saves. The bug related to the “Down on the Street” questline prevented players from progressing in the game’s main story.
Previously, there’s a chance that players will not be able to receive a call from Goro Takemura in the quest. Players need to answer the call to progress. In some cases, Takemura will call, but once the player answers their phone, he will not speak. He will linger on the HUD as if he were conversing with the character, staying there even when the player answers call from others. His avatar would meld with the others as they talk to V, and stay there even after the call.
The Cyberpunk 2077 Hotfix 1.1 solves this issue, eliminating the bug that causes Takemura to stay on screen.
TWO MAJOR GAME-BREAKING BUGS REMAIN
We are hopeful that CDPR will quickly fix the other two remaining game-breaking bugs we’ve mentioned. These two bugs are the following:
- In the quest “A Little Help From My Friends,” Panam may get stuck with a conversation loop, making it impossible for the player to progress the story. While this is happening, Panam’s animation will also bug out. Players observed Panam sitting on an invisible chair, and even “walking” in that position.
- In one of the missions involving River Ward called “The Hunt,” some players have reported that the braindance in this quest won’t complete even after all requirements have been met. According to some players, the prompt to complete the braindance may just not appear. Hence, this gives the impression that the braindance can’t be completed. However, others have also reported that they can’t exit the brain dance even when they’ve scanned all relevant objects.
There are also a variety of minor bugs still persisting. Once CDPR completes the fixes for these issues, they’d be able to focus on the quality of life changes. They’ll also be able to start on downloadable content and the planned stand-alone multiplayer mode.
