Cyberpunk 2077 Quietly Pushes Out First Update of 2022
CD Projekt Red’s ambitious sci-fiction action RPG Cyberpunk2077 has just received its first update in 2022. However, it was not celebrated by the studio. This update is ahead of Cyberpunk’s next-gen upgrade. However, there has yet to be a definite release date.
Cyberpunk2077’s legacy has been fraught with controversy. The game’s launch was a disaster. There were many refund requests and scathing criticisms from its consumers. It was also removed from the PlayStation Store. It did not return to the store for six months. The game’s glitchiness, poor performance on the last-gen consoles, and cut content were the leading causes of most of the problems players experienced with Cyberpunk.
The negative publicity around Cyberpunk was exacerbated because CD Projekt Red didn’t allow review outlets to view footage from the console builds of the game. The lawsuit brought about by CD Projekt Red against the Polish developer culminated in less than $2,000,000 to its investors. Although the studio has made some progress, many gamers still feel that much is to be done.
CD Projekt Red has not abandoned Cyberpunk, as demonstrated by a patch that Reddit user *ssCrack_42069 noticed. This patch, which will mark the first time Cyberpunk has seen it since October, was added to the Steam Database on January 14, without any announcements from CD Projekt Red. The build contents are not public, so it is important to note that they are not available for download.
This quiet update is noteworthy for two reasons. It is the first update of the game in months and the first update in the new year. CD Projekt Red had previously stated that next-gen Cyberpunk2077 would be available in Q1 2022. Many fans hope for a larger patch to increase the excitement for the upcoming update. No details regarding his patch were made public at the time of writing.
It is easy to speculate after hearing this news. Cyberpunk2077 suffered greatly for many players due to its tons of cut content like car customization and wall-running, so a patch that reintroduces some of these features would be welcomed. Cyberpunk2077fans need to remember that CD Projekt Red would want the most excitement possible behind any significant update. Therefore, the studio’s silence suggests that this patch will be more focused on stabilizing performance.
