What you need to know

  • Cyberpunk 2077 is a great game filled with far too many flaws and bugs to count.
  • The team at CDPR has been working hard to fix these issues with a number of patches and updates
  • The latest patch, hotfix 1.12, is now rolling out to Cyberpunk 2077 on PC.
  • This PC-only patch fixes a couple of issues related to a vulnerability in Cyberpunk 2077.

Cyberpunk 2077 has had a rough existence, to put it lightly, after being released in an unfinished state filled with bugs. Since its launch, the team behind Cyberpunk 2077 at CD Projekt RED has been releasing patch after patch to begin fixing these issues. Today, Cyberpunk 2077 players on PC will see the 1.12 hotfix update. This is a very focused update that does little more than resolve a couple of issues related to a major vulnerability in Cyberpunk 2077, which could've allowed for remote code executions.

The Cyberpunk 2077 1.12 hotfix update changelog includes:

  • Addresses the vulnerability that could be used as part of remote code execution (including save files):
    • Fixed a buffer overrun issue
    • Removed / replaced non-ASLR DLLs

This is a small, but wildly important, update, so be sure to install it as soon as it becomes available on your PC. Other platforms may not get this update because of how specific it is. Cyberpunk 2077's 1.11 hotfix update was the last patch the game saw on all platforms and resolved a specific issue introduced in the update before that. The team is planning a significant update sometime this month, which promises to fix the most prominent problems plaguing the game, especially on base last-gen consoles.

While this update is just for PC, Cyberpunk 2077 is also available on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PS5, Xbox One consoles, PS4 consoles, and Stadia. If you're a fan of the game, there's an astronomical amount of merch, toys, and gifts available for Cyberpunk 2077. We did the hard work for you and singled out the Best Cyberpunk 2077 Merch to make it as easy as possible to choose what you want.
