Cyberpunk 2077 did not get off to a smooth start. The release brought with it many technical problems and performance losses. The last-gen consoles in particular had been hit hard. The catastrophic launch condition made cyberpunk almost unplayable on the PS4 and Xbox One, like you at GamePro can read.
The developers at CD Projekt regularly deliver patches and updates to improve the state of the game. A few days ago we started a survey and wanted to know from you how Cyberpunk 2077 is running on your computer with the current patch 1.06.
In this article you can read why CD Projekt is even threatened with legal action:

Cyberpunk 2077: CD Projekt is sued for “misleading”
Cyberpunk 2077 is stable for every second participant
Almost 10,000 people took our survey. Most of you (45 percent of those involved) say the game is stable and there are only a few bugs. Another 15 percent even state that they have no problems at all.
However, every fifth participant also has performance problems to fight and thinks that the state of the game could be better. These field reports are probably also the reason why around ten percent of all participants are still patient and wait for further patches.
Survey mainly reflects PC gamers
Overall, the survey was still in favor of Cyberpunk 2077. Only at least of you are bothered by the current state of the game. Just two percent of those involved consider the game to be unplayable or forego the title entirely.
Such an extremely positive survey result should also come about because the GameStar community consists mostly of PC gamers. Many bugs and crashes were particularly criticized on the LastGen consoles such as PS4 and Xbox One.
So if you also play on the PC and struggle with few problems, but could use a few tips about the game, you will find a lot of help in our guide hub:
This is what our community says about the technical condition
We took a look around in the comments under our survey article and fished out some voices that illustrate the survey result a bit better:
For GameStar reader Herr Hartz, for example, the game runs without any problems and even better since update 1.05, as he reports:
“The game has been running smoothly for me since the release, with the exception of minor graphic errors. Since the patch to 1.05, I’ve also had a noticeable performance boost. I can’t complain.”
For SoBF, the isolated bugs are not very annoying and are more of the order of the day in a freshly released game:
“For me, the game runs on the PC without any major problems. The few bugs in a game of this size are completely normal a few weeks after the release. Everything is OK.”
Gilard has already had a complete run through the game, but kept struggling with problems, which is why he is now a little patient for a second run:
“I played through the game and felt good to very well entertained in the 150 hours or so. There were enough glitches for two games, especially with regard to vehicles and traffic. Smaller bugs that made it disappear with a quicksave and reload also occurred.
There was also a plot stopper bug that cost me about two hours of game progress, as well as an unlockable Cyberpsycho Quest and an unlockable NCPD crime report. I’m looking forward to a second run with a different background for V. However, I’ll wait a few more patches for that. ”
Contrary to all positive reports, there are also players who have only been struggling with crashes since patch 1.06. For them, the situation has turned for the worse- TLink44 writes:
“I’ve had crashes since Patch 1.06. Annoying now and then.”
Despite the many negative headlines and a current lawsuit, Cyberpunk sold millions of copies in 2077. Probably also because it runs (almost) without any problems with many PC players. We explain in a video what the developers still have to tackle:
Criticism of Cyberpunk 2077 – What does CD Projekt have to deliver now?
The last patch 1.06 was released on December 23rd and has fixed one of the most annoying bugs that corrupted your save levels.
It is not yet known when the next patch 1.07 will come. We assume that it won’t come to that until the beginning of next year as the developers are on Christmas vacation.
