Cyberpunk 2077’s last big Patch 1.2 is live now. Here’s everything we know about it. And boy, it’s a lot.
Cyberpunk 2077: Patch 1.2
We knew about Patch 1.2 for some time now when CD Projekt Red founder Marcin Iwiński played out the companies plan for the future of Cyberpunk 2077 in their apology video. The Patch was actually delayed due to yet another cyber attack CD Projekt Red has suffered over the past few months. Just two hours ago, however, the official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account announced that the patch is now live on both consoles and PC.
Patch 1.2 for Cyberpunk 2077 is now live on PC and consoles! A version for Stadia will follow later this week.

This one is huge. It has over a hundred listed patch notes which you can read here if you’re up for that sort of thing. They even fixed the misspelling of “Night City” at a very important location pointed out by many players.
Is this a typo, or did I miss some lore that explains how Night City's real name is actually Nigth City? pic.twitter.com/DQgRFrtjGj

There is so much ground covered with this one that CD Projekt Red even gave us a Development Insight some ten days ago. Overall, Cyberpunk 2077 should start shaping up into a much more stable and flushed-out experience than it was at launch. That doesn’t mean it’s nearing its finish line any time soon.
Going back to that apology video roadmap, the game is still lacking those free DLC’s and that free next-gen console update everybody’s been waiting for. All of this means that it might be some time before we get to see what Cyberpunk 2077 was actually supposed to be all about. We know we’re getting all of these things later this year, but seeing what a rocky development Cyberpunk 2077 has had, including the all too rough start and subsequent messy months the game and gamers alike have suffered, it might be a full year before we get the game that we were expecting. That’s even more true when we consider next-gen versions.
