Hotfix 1.22 for Cyberpunk 2077 promises increased performance and enhanced stability

CD Projekt Red has just released Hotfix 1.22 for Cyberpunk 2077, releasing the update on PC, consoles and Stadia. This update focuses on addressing quest/Open World bugs and adding new performance optimisations to the game. 

With patch 1.22, Cyberpunk 2077 has received memory management improvements on all platforms, reducing the number of crashes that can occur during gameplay. These changes have also optimised the game's codebase to deliver optimised performance across all platforms, resulting in minor performance improvements. 

Update 1.22 also promised improved GPU performance by improving the game's cloth skinning and rendering. On top of this, a bug has been addressed that prevents many instances of "clipping" on NPC clothing.

Xbox One users should see the largest improvement with patch 1.22, as it delivers new platform-specific GPU and ESRAM performance improvements. Memory management on PlayStation 5 is also said to be improved. 

Full patch notes for Hotfix 1.22 are available at the bottom of this article.
