Cyberpunk 2077 Releases Hotfix 1.06 to Squash More Bugs
After starting out with more issues than a magazine archive, Cyberpunk 2077 receives a number of fixes. Creator CD Projekt Red is diligently implementing patches to ensure that frustrated gamers don’t end their gaming session by throwing their PC or console out of the nearest window.
Hotfix 1.06 for PC and consoles landed on Wednesday, December 24th. It fixes random crashes on consoles and saves file corruption for PCs. Here are the changes according to CD Projekt Red:
Quests: Dum Dum will not have disappeared at the entrance of Totentanz during the second conflict.
Console-specific: Improved memory management and stability, resulting in fewer crashes.
PC-specific: The maximum file size of 8 MB has been removed. Note: This will not fix corrupted backup files before the update.
Hotfix 1.06 is available for PC and consoles!

The highly anticipated role-playing game was released earlier this month. However, it quickly found out that it had numerous shortcomings, especially on older consoles that made it virtually unplayable on some platforms.
The situation was so serious that late last week Sony made the unprecedented decision to pull Cyberpunk 2077 off its PlayStation Store and offer full refunds to customers.
Despite the disastrous launch and negative publicity that followed, the company recently announced that it had sold a whopping 13 million copies of the game from its launch date through December 10th to December 20th. There are no publicly available numbers as to how many customers have returned the game for a refund.
In a statement on December 14, the company apologized for the game’s problematic start and promised to release “two major patches” in early 2021.
