Cyberpunk 2077 Hotfix 1.22 Offers Memory Improvements For Consoles
Though the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 wasn’t exactly a runaway favorite, developer CD Projekt RED has since expressed intent to bring the game’s ports up to par and repair its reputation with fans. Starting with the release of several major patches, CDPR’s efforts have continued to be realized as community-requested issues are addressed and the infamously-delisted PlayStation 4 version slowly inches closer to its awaited return to the PSN.
Hotfix 1.22 for #Cyberpunk2077 is live on PC, consoles and Stadia.
This update addresses the most frequently reported issues since the last patch and introduces further improvements to stability and performance of the game. Here’s the list of changes:https://t.co/HUdKlCoQoE pic.twitter.com/NiqNwVR29b

Only two weeks removed from the last one, the studio has now pushed live Hotfix 1.22, offering fixes for a number of issues across Google Stadia, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Highlights of the patch include fixes for a glitch that traps players in an elevator, clothes clipping through NPCs, and various platform memory improvements. The latter notably addresses GPU and ESRAM issues on Xbox One as well as memory management of the PS4 version on PS5. Full patch notes can be viewed below:

Much of the developer’s future efforts are dedicated to fixing Cyberpunk 2077, but CDPR doesn’t appear to be putting all of its eggs in one cyber-basket as of late. The game’s multiplayer component is currently undergoing an overhaul, a next-gen update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is in the works, and an interesting AR mobile spin-off game is about to gear up for release. There’s also the Henry Cavill-led Witcher Netflix series that is now on course for its awaited season 2 return.
Cyberpunk 2077 is out now for PC, Google Stadia, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, as well as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S via backward compatibility.
