CD Projekt Red has just released the latest Cyberpunk 2077 update, Patch 1.1. Unfortunately for the beleaguered Polish developer, the new patch has introduced a serious bug that prevents players from completing the main quest.
The issue occurs during the main story quest “Down on the Street”: Takemura is supposed to call V, and the ensuing conversation finishes the quest. If your quest is bugged, however, Takemura will instead just stare at you awkwardly. If this occurs, the player is unable to progress the main storyline.
CDPR has given a suggested workaround, although it requires loading a save from before you leave Wakako’s office with Takemura:
Load a save from before Takemura and V leave Wakako’s office.
Finish the conversation with Takemura outside the office right away
Right after the finished conversation and when the quest was updated, skip 23h.
See if the holocall triggers and the dialogue with Takemura starts
From the way the workaround is worded, it sounds as though it doesn’t always work, which is concerning for players who are just now starting the main story. A hotfix is almost assuredly on the way, but there has been no word from CDPR as of yet regarding if or when a hotfix for this bug is coming. In the meantime, players should steer clear of progressing the main quest, or at least make sure they save right before they talk to Wakako in “Down on the Street”.
Did you experience this bug? Have you tested the workaround? Let us know in the comments!
