CD Project Red has released patch 2.01 for Cyberpunk 2077 and Phantom Liberty. The patch is now available on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S.
Patch 2.01 fixes many bugs related to individual quests in both the base game and the Phantom Liberty DLC; fixes some gameplay issues and specific problems for PC and console versions of the game; and improves overall stability.
Among other things, patch 2.01 introduces “Several improvements and changes to the Ukrainian localization, including line corrections, translation lost its original meaning.” This is, of course, about removing references to the current Russian-Ukrainian war, which do not fit the lore of Cyberpunk 2077, because in this universe the USSR still exists.
Almost immediately after the release of Phantom Liberty, the studio apologized for some lines in the Ukrainian localization and promised to fix them in the next patch. This, in turn, provoked another language scandal in the Ukrainian gaming community. While many players support the translators’ desire to reflect modern realities in the game, others believe that the translation should be consistent with the original and fit into the game’s universe, and not change it as translators wish.
