The highly anticipated next-gen update for Cyberpunk 2077 has made physical PS4 copies unplayable without a way to fix the error.

Following the abysmal launch of Cyberpunk 2077, the developers at CD PROJEKT RED promised to continually develop the title. Bug-ridden and removed from the PlayStation Store, the game was in need of a major overhaul.

And on February 15, 2022, devs released the long-awaited next-gen update that aimed to solve a lot of problems. Despite minor hiccups during the overview broadcast on Twitch, most players are happy with the update.

There have been multiple reports from comments that CD PROJEKT RED is aware of the issue and is working on a fix. It seems the error could stem from the CUSA code attached to a player’s copy of the game.

This isn’t the only issue with the new update on PlayStation. One user who is able to play on PS5 states that a mission that requires you to shut down cars results in their console turning off.
