Cyberpunk 2077 Reportedly Getting Massive 38 GB Patch This Month

Cyberpunk 2077

The king of all patches could be headed to Cyberpunk 2077 in the near future if a recent report is to be believed.

As relayed by user PricklyAssassin in a lengthy Reddit post earlier today, a self-developed tool – the Epic Inspector – they claim can be used to data-mine the company’s Epic Game Store servers has revealed a number of interesting details for the RPG, including references to a massive patch. The update, they say, will clock in at a whopping 38.2 GB and is likely to release within the next 2 to 3 weeks, placing its ETA anywhere between late July and early August.

What will be included with this sizable download isn’t specified, though they note that associated files have already been uploaded to both GOG and Steam in addition to EGS. One possible outcome offered by the leaker suggests that this could coincide with a new directive aimed at ensuring all owners of the sci-fi title are compelled to use the latest game version.

Such a move would mean Cyberpunk 2077 being rendered completely unplayable even in offline mode without installation, and a result of CDPR preemptively prepping for the arrival of DLC. While possible, this is contradicted in the very same post when PricklyAssassin says every instance and reference to Add-ons in the EGS will be removed alongside the same update, either signaling that plans to deliver post-launch content have changed or scrapped entirely. Whatever the case, we’d recommend taking all the above with a massive grain of salt, at least until official sources say otherwise.

In related news, Sony recently reinstated Cyberpunk 2077 to the PlayStation Store, immediately topping download charts within a month of its return. See here for the full story.
