Cyberpunk 2077 launches globally later this week. CD Projekt Red has outlined the global release times for the game. Today, review embargos have lifted so there are impressions out in the wild if you want to know what some critics think. One major criticism that has turned up is how buggy the game has been. I say this because some gamers who have gotten the game early may have noticed a new update for the game, prior to the game’s launch. another update is coming on launch as well, A CD Projekt Red developer has revealed that another update is coming as well on launch day.
It’s an update but – fun twist – not the update we’ll have for launch. 😅

DreamcastGuy shared an image of the update which is 43.5 GB large. CD Projekt Red developer Fabian Mario Dohla responded to the image revealing that it’s not even the update that will be coming on the game’s launch. Day One patches aren’t new in this day and age. Depending on the game, it could something simple as an update to the stability of the game, bug fixes, or something else. Two big updates like Cyberpunk 2077 is going to have is more than likely related to all of the issues that many critics pointed out in their reviews. It’s possible that these two big updates won’t be enough to fix everything, so more updates will be coming in the future. It’s important to note that the reviews are related to the PC version of the game. If you’re looking for impressions on how the game performs on console, you’re going to have to wait while outlets try the game out on the different platforms.
The wait is almost over!
