CD Projekt RED announces a workaround to solve the latest Cyberpunk 2077 glitch

In a blog on its support website, CD Projekt RED announced that there is a workaround that will help players in avoiding the “Down on the Street” bug. It only requires an earlier game save.

The procedure to solve the bug is:

  • Load a saved game before V and Takemura leave Wakao’s office.
  • Finish the conversation with Takemura outside the office.
  • Skip 23h after the conversation finishes and the quest updates.

Following these steps accurately should trigger the holocall and start the conversation with Takemura.

In a recent tweet, CD Projekt RED also announced that a hot fix for the same will be available soon.

Other changes in the game since update 1.1

Even though the aforementioned bug created a lot of trouble, there’s no denying the fact that update 1.1 has significantly improved Cyberpunk 2077. It has enhanced the overall gaming experience across quests/open world, UI, visuals, and achievements. Furthermore, there have been several platform-specific upgrades for PlayStation, Xbox, PC, and Stadia.
