Last night, CD Projekt RED released the first major promised update of Cyberpunk 2077. Although it is larger than previous updates, yesterday’s patch 1.1 focuses more on stability fixes than on a comprehensive overhaul. In fact, it may even have made the game worse – introducing a bug that could hinder your progress.
Patch 1.1 addresses a problem in the “Down on the Street” mission that Takemura would not turn on, thus preventing any progress in the mission. He’ll call now, apparently, but then he won’t say a word. Some users say that reloading old saved files or creating new ones also doesn’t solve the problem.
There is at least one workaround. First, try calling Judy before Takemura calls. When he does, hang up the line and do a side quest (the player who reported this workaround did a Delamain side mission). Wait 24 hours in the game, and Takemura must connect – with dialogue and everything – allowing you to progress on the mission in question.
Cyberpunk 2077 is due to receive another major update in February. The title was a commercial success, with digital sales estimated at 10.2 million.
