An unexpected hotfix for Cyberpunk 2077 has been pushed to address the crash

(Pocket-lint) – While we weren’t expecting any additional Cyberpunk 2077 patches until the new year, CD Project Red has released a hotfix v1.06 to address issues with console owner crashes.

It also lists fixes to prevent problems with games played by computers.

CD Project Red announced late yesterday on Twitter – using the official Cyberpunk feed – that version 1.06 is now available, just days after hotfix 1.05.

The change log claims to have “improved memory management and stability, resulting in a smaller drop” for console players. This is something we have especially experienced on the PS4 and PS5.

The developer also “removed the 8 MB save file size limit” to prevent damage to your computer’s savings. Unfortunately, this will not fix the saves already damaged before the latest update.

Cyberpunk 2077 has had a lot of negative publicity since its launch, especially on the console, due to a multitude of bugs and performance issues. However, we found that each patch addresses many of the issues we found. The two most important upgrades are, in January and February.
