This is especially true for players on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and a report by Polygon points out that a number of these players have faced crashes, freezes, choppy gameplay, geometric issues with NPCs, and more. Some PS4 players have also experienced screen tearing, missing textures, frame rate drops, low resolution, and other bugs that are ruining their experience. Several of these issues are reportedly persisting even after the Day One patch.

Further, some PC players are getting ‘Whoa! Cyberpunk 2077 has flatlined’ error when trying to start the game. The cause for this issue is unclear but restarting the PC, updating GPU drivers, and shutting down unwanted programs seem to fix this issue for some players.
