Patch 1.1 was Cyberpunk 2077’s first major patch, but it brought about a game-breaking bug. Developer CD Projekt RED have responded with a workaround.

The patch, which released Friday, brought about stability improvements to PC, consoles, and Stadia. It’s the first of two major patches announced by CDPR in a recent video. The second patch is set for February sometime.

However, Patch 1.1 brought about a game-breaking bug. In reporting by Forbes, the bug manifests when Takemura gives you a call in the quest, “Down the Street.” He’ll call you…but won’t say anything. Obviously, this means you cannot continue.

CDPR is aware of this and offered a workaround while they look into the issue further:

  1. Load a gamesave before Takemura and V leave Wakako's office.
  2. Finish the conversation with Takemura outside the office right away
  3. Right after the finished conversation and when the quest was updated, skip 23h.
  4. See if the holocall triggers and the dialogue with Takemura starts
