Cyberpunk 2077 is beginning to make strikes relating to its subsequent patch, extensively assumed to be 1.5, with the sport skipping 1.4 fully and doing a serious patch to be launched alongside the PS5 and Xbox Collection X variations of the sport. Or theoretically, perhaps even forward of that.
Eagle-eyed followers have observed that the construct of Cyberpunk 2077 has now been up to date to a brand new model for the primary time since October, and the final precise patch Cyberpunk 2077 acquired was 1.31 in mid-September, which amongst different issues, made reflective surfaces quite a bit higher within the sport.
In idea, I suppose it is likely to be doable that we might get a smaller pre-patch earlier than a serious one that’s going together with the PS5 and Collection X launch, however we’ll see. Right here’s what CDPR stated about its Q1 2022 plans for the patch and next-gen launch:
“We’re arduous at work on the next-gen model of Cyberpunk, scheduled for launch within the first quarter of 2022, alongside one other main replace for all platforms,” CD Projekt Group president Adam Kiciński stated in a press release in November 2021.
So, that suggests the large patch and next-gen launch are on the identical time, which might make sense. As of proper now, nonetheless, the one factor that CDPR has commented on relating to this large new patch is dismissing a rumored leak about its contents, saying that not less than a few of it’s “made up,” though some features have been pulled from datamined information within the sport itself, which accurately predicted different previous free DLC. At minimal (very minimal), I’m anticipating New Sport Plus to launch alongside the PS5 and Xbox Collection X variations, which might give present gamers a purpose to return to the sport and check out the brand new model on these consoles, even when they performed the unique upconverted model earlier than. Different rumored free DLC additions embody new weapons and gigs, together with a couple of different datamined DLC names which can be more durable to establish (mirror? monster?).
The very best estimate for the large Cyberpunk 2077 patch proper now could be February, which at this level is just two weeks away, and this construct replace appears to be laying the groundwork for that. I’d be a bit shocked if this occurred now and the patch wasn’t till March, however we’ll need to see. As ever, CDPR isn’t sharing something in any respect about this, and their technique has typically been to drop patches, even enormous ones, with little or no warning. However we’ll see if that occurs this time round, or if they might have some form of advertising and marketing marketing campaign connected to it, given how main it’s imagined to be.
