While September’s Version 2.0 update was once expected to be the game’s final big update, last week the studio revealed plans for another significant patch.
Set for release on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S on December 5, it will introduce “some of the most-requested features” including a metro system, portable radio player, repeatable car races, hangouts with romantic interests, and improved boss fights.
Update 2.1 will launch alongside Cyberpunk 2077 Ultimate Edition. A summary of the update’s new features follows, via CD Projekt.
Cyberpunk 2077 was billed as one of the biggest titles of the last console generation, but things went badly wrong for it at release.
After three delays, the highly anticipated RPG released for PC and consoles with a host of technical problems, resulting in refunds being offered and the game being pulled from the PlayStation Store.
Following six months of patches designed to improve the game, it returned to Sony’s online marketplace in June 2021, when CD Projekt said it believed Cyberpunk 2077‘s performance had reached a “satisfying” level.
CD Projekt has spent the last two years working to improve and expand the game, and last month it claimed it had sold over 25 million copies.
Its first and only expansion, Phantom Liberty, arrived in September and cleared 4.3 million sales in its first two months, according to the company.
CD Projekt’s next major release will a new The Witcher game, while a Cyberpunk 2077 sequel is entering development at its North America studios.
