Cyberpunk 2077 Hotfix 1.22: Performance and Stability improvements, and more

CD Projekt Red has released a new hotfix for Cyberpunk 2077 today, introducing further improvements to the performance and stability of the game.

The new Hotfix 1.22 for Cyberpunk is now live on PC, consoles, and Stadia. The update mostly focuses on the most commonly reported issues since the last patch.

While the hotfix 1.22 doesn’t seem as big as v1.2, CDPR still introduced multiple bug fixes that players were facing in quests and the open world. The update also features some important memory management optimizations that aim to reduce the number of crashes. Some console-specific improvements have also been made to improve the overall experience.

You can read the full patch notes down below.
