Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.6 Release Prediction
Cyberpunk Patch 1.6 is expected to be the main feature of Night City Wire on September 6th. Night City Wire is CDProjekt’s regular web show that reveals updates on Cyberpunk 2077 and is scheduled to be broadcast at 8 AM PT, 11 AM ET, 4 PM BST and 5 PM CEST on the Cyberpunk 2077 YouTube channel.
While it’s unclear when the patch will release, we can take a decent, educated guess. The last update, version 1.5, was discussed in a live stream on Feb 15th, 2022. CDprojekt released the patch that very same day.
With that in mind, the Cyberpunk 2077 1.6 patch will likely release on September 6th after the live stream. There’s always a chance that it’ll be delayed, but with any luck, we should see more bug fixes soon.
Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.6 Expected Release Time Prediction
As we said above, there is no official word on when the patch will go live. That said, we can base our expected release time on past patches and episodes of Night City Wire.
The last update dropped at the same time as the reveal video. With that in mind, the Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.6 expected release time is probably around 8 AMPT/11 AM ET.
Cyberpunk 2077 Patch 1.6 Expected Size Prediction
While it’s tough to gauge just how big this update will be, there are a few clues. We know that 1.5 was a massive update to the game, making it playable on older systems for the first time, and that update was around 50GB.
With that in mind, this update could easily be similar but will probably be slightly smaller. We don’t know exactly what will be changing about the game, but unless there are some dramatic changes to the world and game, it’s probably going to be closer to a few gigabytes.
Cyberpunk 2077 Potential DLC
There has been a lot of talk about DLC being released for Cyberpunk 2077. So far, there’s been no official word about when or what to expect, but that hasn’t stopped fans from coming up with theories.
Even as far back as January 2022, fans on Reddit have been speculating about what the DLC will contain. Right now, the main fan theory is that 1.6 will be the big setup for the first major DLC release, though no one is sure what the DLC will include.
CDProjekt made it clear in the tweet that one of the subjects up for discussion will be ‘the future of Cyberpunk 2077,’ which many have taken as a sign that DLC will be a big topic of the presentation.
Cyberpunk 2077 New DLC Fan Response
While many see the announcement as a good thing, it has also triggered some less favorable responses. Some users on Twitter found the mention of the upcoming Cyberpunk Anime to be a particular thorn in their side.
Story DLC when??? Honestly, after everything that’s happened with this game, the launch, controversies, one would think CDPR would focus on the game itself, fixing and adding story content to redeem it, rather than making spin-off animes.
The high level of frustration is understandable, with the game prompting controversy on its release. Many fans weren’t happy with the state of the game, and many are still unhappy with what they perceive as false advertising.
To this day, many features shown in trailers still aren’t in the game. While the 1.6 updates may fix some of that, to some, it’s too little, too late. Still, other players may be happy to get the game they’ve been waiting for.
Hopefully CDPR is working towards developing the game they promised, along with the DLC they promised over 3 years ago.
What was Cyberpunk 2077 1.5?
Cyberpunk 2077 1.5 acted as a HUGE update for Cyberpunk 2077. The patch brought with it the next generation update, creating a Cyberpunk 2077 experience that worked on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
The patch added Dualsense Controller Features for the PlayStation 5 version, ray-traced shadows, improved crowd reactions, and much more. To many, this was the game that Cyberpunk 2077 should have been way back when it was launched, and it marked the game finally being finished to a degree that they could recommend it to other people in good conscience.
