The abundance of issues and glitches in the game only plagued the already stuttering release of Cyberpunk 2077. CD Projekt RED pushed the boundaries of the open-world genre with the insanely detailed action-adventure title, which was one of the most awaited games of the year. However, the studio failed to deliver a satisfactory title.

But as we have said before, devs at CDPR have been working hard and have been releasing regular updates to bring the game to the standard they had promised its fans. Recently, the devs released a major update for the game across all platforms, including Stadia.

The 1.1 update patch has added numerous fixes, including the startup crashes on PC and performance optimizations on PS4. However, the current update seems to have spawned a new set of issues in Cyberpunk 2077.

The Cyberpunk 2077 1.1 update patch offers a lot but disappoints as well

If you take a look at the discussion thread on the latest patch, you will find one recurring comment from fans: disappointing. Sure, the patch brings a lot of stability to the game, and players sure have acknowledged the efforts the devs have put in. There actually is a hoard of comments praising the good work. But sometimes the fans are just not pleased, and they do have their reasons.

A fan, who goes by the name Acropix, wrote, “Sounds good so far, although no fixes on glaring issues like the mini-map or lack of control customization. Those should have been easy to implement.

Another fan, Ravendies, said, “I was really hoping to see something about scanning not working which has prevented my progress in multiple quests.

However, one issue that numerous players seem to be facing is the one regarding Takemura. This is something that players have complained about both on the online forum as well as on Twitter. Apparently, the character Takemura calls V but does not say anything and neither does he hang up. This issue has been preventing multiple players from continuing the mission.

Having said everything, there is very little doubt about the work that devs are putting into Cyberpunk 2077 and improving the current issues. Given the amount of importance that they have given to player feedback, we can expect a much better 2021 for the game.
