Original Story - Get ready Cyberpunk 2077 fans - the 1.1 patch update that is imminently due at some stage in January.

With CD Projekt Red announcing the update to arrive in the next 10 days (from the 13th January) we could receive it any day now.

Since launch, the game has been littered with bugs and issues that CD Projekt Red has vowed to fix and rectify the rocky launch that wrapped up a dismal 2020.

We've already had six major patches in the space of a month of its launch, suggesting what state the game was in; making the game unplayable on some platforms.

If you're playing on Xbox One or PS4, you may have already refunded the game, but if you're sticking with it you'll be looking forward to the developer's January and February patches which are aimed at fixing performance on those platforms.

The most recent update, 1.06, was much smaller than we've seen previously, solving the 8 MB save file size limit.

Here's what you can expect from Patch 1.1 in Cyberpunk 2077.

Cyberpunk 2077 Is Losing Players FAST - 6th January

Advertisement

Over the course of three weeks, Cyberpunk 2077 has lost 79% of its initial concurrent player count; according to Analysis from GytHyp.

It is worth bearing in mind that the game had over a million concurrent players on the platform at launch.

While it's still at a comfortable 150,000+ concurrent players, CDPR will no doubt want to push out an update fast.

Release Date And Time

The 1.1 patch is scheduled for release in January 2021.

CD Projekt Red confirmed that once they are back after the holidays, they will continue working on game improvements including two big patches.

While many had hoped the patch would arrive before the start of 2021, it's worth remembering that the team is likely working long hours to finish the update.

Still, the patch has been earmarked for January, with another one slated for February. Here's hoping for some news soon.

If we were to guess, we'd expect the update to arrive towards the end of the month. CDPR will be eager to get out a big fix as users are dropping off the game rapidly and they had ample time before the Christmas break to sort something out.

What To Expect In Future Updates

CD Projekt Red have a good track record for post-launch support and they've obviously dedicated themselves heavily to getting Cyberpunk 2077 to a point at which they are happy.

So what have they done in the past?

Witcher 1

With the Witcher, the game released back in 2007 and updated with four major bug-fixing patches.

The free Enhanced Edition released in 2008, incorporating all prior fixes while overhauling many models, animations, and improving translations.

Witcher 2

Three years later, the Witcher 2 launched followed by four patches.

Patch 2.0  introduced an entirely new tutorial, a higher difficulty level, and a combat arena mode.

Fast-forwarding to Patch 3.0, the free Enhanced Edition incorporated prior fixes while adding new quests, cinematics, locations and cutscenes, along with more fixes.

This was then finalised with four smaller patches allowing for mod support.

Witcher 3
