What you need to know

  • Cyberpunk 2077 still isn't in amazing shape, with further bugs and performance issues plaguing the ambitious RPG.
  • It's been several weeks since the last update, but CD Projekt RED is breaking the silence by releasing the 1.23 patch update on all platforms.
  • The 1.23 patch update for Cyberpunk 2077 includes a solid number of further improvements, especially for Xbox and PC.
  • This update arrives just after the news that Cyberpunk 2077 is returning to the PlayStation Store on June 21, 2021.

Cyberpunk 2077 is the story of great promise and disappointing delivery, with the game being every part a genre-defining masterpiece, but dragged down by persistent bugs, performance issues, and other problems. It's been a while since the last Cyberpunk 2077 update, which was the 1.22 hotfix, but CD Projekt RED is back again with another hefty bug-squashing update. Cyberpunk 2077 1.23 patch update is now available on all platforms, and should bring Cyberpunk 2077 a little closer to the game it definitely can be.

The 1.23 patch update arrives just after the news that Cyberpunk 2077 is returning to the PlayStation Store on June 21, after being removed ages ago for its abysmal experience on PS4 and PS4 Pro. CD Projekt RED has delivered a myriad of updates to Cyberpunk 2077, and the game has indeed massively improved since launch, but it's still an incredibly imperfect experience that suffers the worse on base game consoles.

Hopefully, the 1.23 patch update will continue to bring Cyberpunk 2077 closer to its potential, which would absolutely rank it among the best Xbox games around. CD Projekt RED is filled with talented developers that are likely dedicated to making Cyberpunk 2077 everything it can be.
