New Cyberpunk 2077 patch enables Ray Tracing on AMD graphics cards

AMD, Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red

CD Projekt Red encountered many problems in the past few months which impeded their ability to work on Cyberpunk 2077. The infamous futuristic RPG found its way to a playable state despite several hurdles close to its release. However, several fixes still need to be made to the game. CDPR hoped to deliver Patch 1.2 for Cyberpunk as planned but nefarious forces got in the way. Now, finally, Cyberpunk players finally get a glimpse of the incoming changes bound for the Cyberpunk version 1.2.


The biggest update from the 1.2 Patch comes for the benefit of AMD graphics cards users. Cyberpunk  2077 will finally support real-time ray tracing on AMD RDNA 2 graphics cards. The ray-tracing update will offer better graphics for players rocking Team Red PCs. The release of the update indicates that CDPR finally got back to working in their games after the massive hack. The company remains silent on the future of console ports of the massive game after its rough launch period. Given that the 1.2 Patch applies for all versions of the game, there may be hope in a fix heading for the console players.

Recently, CD Projekt Red suffered a massive targeted cyberattack. The Polish game developer stood its ground despite losing a lot of valuable data to hackers. CDPR declared that it would not negotiate with the hackers holding the data hostage. Subsequently, CDPR source code found its way to seedy websites where the hackers sold the data. Eventually, CDPR could do nothing but go after the social media accounts pushing sales of their stolen content.

It’s good to see CD Projekt Red overcome the brutal cyberattack it just suffered. However, many players still feel betrayed by the utter mishandling of the console versions of Cyberpunk 2077. The new 1.2 Update helps a little bit but there remains no word about potential solutions to the broken console experience.
