The ordeal for Cyberpunk 2077 shows no sign of ending even after the January corrective patch 1.1, which according to CD Projekt Red should have started to solve the optimization problems on consoles.
From several reports appearing on the net, it seems that the problems with the new corrective patch are not over and that indeed, some users on PlayStation 5 consoles have accused a worsening in the frequency of disabling system crashes. To this is added a further very serious system bug on all platforms concerning the main plot.
A situation of relentless crisis for CD Projekt Red that has found itself in a fire that now more than a month after the release of Cyberpunk 2077, absolutely does not solve it out. Attention, the following in this news contains spoilers on the main story!
While for the crash problems on PS5 the situation still seems unclear, the condition for the very serious bug concerning the main plot present with the new patch 1.1 of Cyberpunk 2077 is more defined but very serious. This appears to be due to Takemura’s quest block, and is considered a bug that can completely ruin the course of a game.
In fact, it has been seen that after the mission “Down on the street” after talking with Fixer Wakako on Jig-Jig street, Takumura will try to contact us via a phone call, and here the game will stop on the dialogue screen preventing us from continuing the story as in a dead-end loop. Loading a previous autosave doesn’t seem to fix the problem because once you get back to that point in the story, the game will crash again.
CD Projekt Red is already aware of the problem and is already working very hard to fix this bug as soon as possible, which is considered a priority target. Meanwhile, the studio invites users who run into this problem to follow the advice that we have summarized below.
Try loading a manual save of the game prior to “V” and Takemura’s entry from Okada’s office bearing in mind that Takemura must finish his dialogue line before leaving the office. Then immediately skip 23-hour playing time forward thanks to the option on the game menu. This procedure should activate the correct execution of the telephone conversation with Takemura and allow the story to continue.
