All of us can agree that the launch of the most anticipated game of 2020 Cyberpunk 2077 could have been better. Both players and CDPR management who wanted to release the game as soon as possible are to blame for the state of the game at launch. After the launch, CD Projekt Red came forward and admitted that they were aware of game’s performance on the previous-gen consoles and the bugs/glitches that the game had, yet they decided to release the game. The company also put forward its post-launch plan that aimed to fix the problems and provide a roadmap for the future DLCs and next-gen console updates of the game.
The developer has mostly followed its plan with the exception of the native support on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X consoles. It was delayed to the 2nd half of 2021. Three major Hotfixes that aimed to fix the problems on the consoles and the PC have already been released. A big Patch version 1.1 has also graced the consoles shortly followed by the PC. The game sure is in a much better place than it was before, but it is still not recommended at least on the base consoles. However, on the PC side, things are turning around and the latest Hotfix 1.12 is available to download now.
Hotfix 1.12 is now available on PC!
This update addresses the vulnerability that could be used as part of remote code execution (including save files):

According to the Twitter post, the new updates address issues that may affect how the execution of the game code reacts to the hardware specifically RAM (buffer) and the save file situation. Previously, a bug corrupted the savefiles rendering the progress made by the players unusable. A fix was soon available but the new patch addresses the problem at its core. Other than this they have also replaced non-ASLR DLL (Dynamic-link library) files.
