CD PROJEKT RED, the game publisher behind Cyberpunk 2077 has released an important update. The latest update doesn’t add new in-game items or features.

The latest Hotfix v1.06 for Cyberpunk promises to improve the stability of the game on dedicated game consoles, addresses memory mismanagement, and most importantly, prevents the Game Save file from getting corrupted after crossing 8 MB in size. The Hotfix is about 500MB in size.

CD PROJEKT RED has released hotfix 1.06 for the PC and console versions of Cyberpunk 2077:

Gamers haven’t had a good experience with Cyberpunk 2077. Although the game offers one of the most immersive visual experiences and stimulating environments, there have been several issues with the game.

The latest issue with the game corrupted the critical Game Save data files. The issue was prevalent only in the PC version, but it completely rendered the save files useless. Apparently, gamers who started hoarding in-game items were susceptible to the problem.

Besides the Game Save data corruption, gamers playing Cyberpunk 2077 on game consoles and PC, often experience memory mismanagement. Additionally, the game sometimes misbehaved. Essentially, there was a problem with the stability of the game.

The latest Cyberpunk 2077 hotfix is now live on PC and consoles. Tagged as Hotfix v1.06, it fixes multiple issues and promises to boost the stability of the game, particularly on consoles, by better managing memory.

Cyberpunk 2077 Hotfix v1.06 details:


  • Dum Dum will no longer go missing from Totentanz’s entrance during the Second Conflict.


  • Improved memory management and stability, resulting in fewer crashes.


  • Removed the 8 MB save file size limit. Note: this won’t fix save files corrupted before the update.

As evident from the changelog above, CD PROJEKT RED has merely offered a solution to the most common issues with Cyberpunk 2077. The game development company hasn’t offered any detail about the possible causes.

It is interesting to note that the previous Hotfix for the game, tagged as v1.05, was a lot bigger than the current one. It contained optimizations for AMD CPUs, improved image sharpness, addressed weird looking vehicles, added Telemetry consent owing to changes in the reset of settings, etc.

Cyberpunk 2077 is now reportedly available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia. This evidently means Sony has allowed the game back on its virtual shelves.

Despite CD PROJEKT RED addressing several issues with Cyberpunk 2077, there are a number of complaints about various problems with the same on social media. The most common and pestering issues apparently pertain to the AI that deals with law enforcement spawning within the game.
