Cyberpunk 2077’s latest patch introduced another game-breaking bug, here’s how to fix it

1 min read

Cyberpunk 2077 is a glitchy mess. There’s no need to belabour the point, we all know and understand that now. Yet what’s a little disappointing is that the latest patch for the game, version 1.1, was meant to at least fix some of the bugs.

Based on player feedback it hasn’t done much of that. While the framerate may be smoother in some cases, plenty of the game’s faults are still present and there are even some new game-breaking bugs. One involves a phone conversation with the secondary character Takemura… a conversation which just doesn’t happen.


When you’ve finished the Down in the Street quest, you should receive a call from Takemura. The only problem is, once you’ve downloaded patch 1.1, Takemura give you a ring and then doesn’t talk. This essentially soft-locks the game as no other quests can be taken on until he’s finished chatting with you.

There is a fix for this problem though, and it’s not even that much of a pain (you shouldn’t need to use it but at least it’s not too difficult). First, reload a save of the game before V and Takemura leave Wakako’s office. Just after stepping outside, the quest progression will update and you’ll need to wait for 23 hours. Not in real time, fortunately. Just pull up the wait menu and have V stand around for nearly a day like a nutter.


If you do this, the phone conversation at the end of the mission should play out as normal. There’s a chance it might not work, as this is a jury-rigged solution to the problem but given that it was the solution provided by CD Projekt Red’s technical team over on the game’s forums, one has to hope that there’s a least a little consistency to the method. Good luck!

    Do you guys know anyone that works for CD Projekt Red ? If you do, kindly tell them to fix the god damn game crashes. I waited a full month after putting in 30 hours into the game, And I stared fresh, to play this masterpiece again. But now the game crashes have moved from when I am traversing to any time, be it mid gun fight to riding around the city or mid mission. It would go a long way to temper peoples angst if we could play longer than 30 minutes without a crash………..

      Best advice, park that game off for at least another year.

      Finish your backlog

        Delete it, make space for your backlog and only bother with it in a year or so. If it’s still broken, launch the disc like a frisbee and watch the disc shatter as it hits a hard surface.

          From what I’ve played to what the so called critics are raving about, the content in this game is far superior to anything out there. Trust me. I am trying my best to read more websites, but hell, when you see what’s out here, it’s best just to stick your head in the ground and wait for the inevitable nukes or AI to turn on us….

    Waiting around for a phonecall seems very this decade

      It’s kind of appropriate for 2020/21…
