Cyberpunk 2077 patch 1.1 is out now with quest fixes and stability improvements

By Heidi Nicholas,
Cyberpunk 2077 latest patch aims to fix a number of problems in the game, but unfortunately, it also seems to have introduced a new progress-blocking bug.

Patch 1.1

One issue the patch had aimed to address was a bug in the quest Down on the Street, where Takemura wouldn't call V, and so the quest couldn't be progressed. However, players are now reporting over in the Cyberpunk subreddit (thanks, PCGamesN) that the patch has introduced a new bug: Takemura will now call V, but won't say anything. This means that the quest still can't progress, but for some players, the bug is breaking the game entirely, as while Takemura is on the phone, they can't interact with NPCs, use the shops, fast travel, or call anyone else. V is left wandering the city with a silent Takemura staring from the corner of the screen.

Players are already suggesting workarounds, most of which involve having another character call V: tracking a quest where someone will call you, for instance, or travelling to an area where a fixer will call, with Takemura's call then occurring correctly afterwards. However, still other players are stuck in a loop where reloading saves doesn't sort the problem. CDPR is aware of the issue too, and has suggested a potential workaround: to load a save from before Takemura and V leave Wakako, finish the conversation with Takemura outside Wakako's office, skip 23 hours as soon as the conversation is finished and the quest updates, and then "see if the holocall triggers and the dialogue with Takemura starts." This might not work for everyone, since some players might not have an earlier save or might have run into the issue with reloading, but CDPR says it is "currently looking into the issue."

Patch 1.1 brought a number of fixes and stability improvements, with solutions for open-world issues and quests including Epistrophy, M'ap Tann Pèlen, Pyramid Song, Poem of The Atoms, The Pickup, The Beast in Me: The Big Race, A Day In The Life, Space Oddity, Automatic Love and Gig: Freedom of the Press. UI and visual fixes were also included, along with a few PlayStation-specific fixes, including "performance optimization of crowds on PlayStation 4 Pro and PlayStation 5" and "various crash fixes on PlayStation 4."
