With the newly released Cyberpunk 2077 update promising “improved stability”, we obviously had to go and check whether one of the game’s biggest problems has been fixed. We are, of course, talking about the consistent crashing issue that’s been present since day one. It exists on both PS4 and PS5 (through backwards compatibility), with the game crashing roughly every hour and a half of play, pretty much without fail. Some players have it worse than others, though.
Unfortunately, update 1.05 hasn’t helped. Once again, after slumming it around Night City for about 90 minutes, the game crashed on us when we entered a busy area. Very disappointing. We’re currently reading similar reports around the web.
What’s more, the patch did not address the game-breaking bug that currently holds our 65-hour save file hostage, despite the patch notes claiming that it would. In fact, our in-game phone appears to be completely broken — quest givers simply refuse to contact us, even for smaller side jobs and gigs. Unbelievable stuff.
It’s unclear whether Cyberpunk 2077 will receive any further patches before the holidays. CD Projekt Red has stated that two big updates are coming in January and February 2021 respectively, and if they work wonders, then we might see the game return to the PlayStation Store within the next few months.
