May it be a new bug to the old bug? CD Projekt RED even seems to have made a bug worse with update 1.10. We’ll show you some possible workarounds to make progress in the story.
Cyberpunk 2077 was also unable to restore patch 1.10 to such an extent that it runs error-free. One bug in particular, which should have been fixed, is currently making it impossible for players to advance in Night City. But there is also good news, because you can use some workarounds to fix the problem.
The original bug prevented Takemura from calling the player. This made it impossible to make any progress at this point in the story during the “Wait a day for Takemura’s call” quest. The patch fixed the problem, but led to an equally frustrating bug: Takemura calls, but doesn’t speak to you anymore. If you want to continue playing at this point, you should be somewhat frustrated to find that it won’t go on like this for the time being.
On Reddit, however, some users have tried to find solutions. One user recommends calling other NPCs first to “reset” Takemura so to speak. Call Judy first before receiving the call from Takemura. Then you stay on the phone until he calls. When you end the Judy call, your call notification will not appear on the screen. Then you should play another part-time job and wait 24 hours (in the game). At some point, Takemura will call and the quest will work properly.
Another Reddit user describes another Workaround: “When Takemura called, I was driving to one of the undiscovered locations on the map that was near a side job I’d never interacted with before,” he explains. “The phone hung up on Takemura when Regina Jones called about the undiscovered location. Immediately thereafter, Dakota Smith called about the part-time job. Takemura didn’t call back, even after finishing the other two calls and tracking the search to wait for his call. I walked around a bit, made a couple of little attacks and a side quest that I’d sat on for a while, made a new save, reloaded the same save and Takemura called as soon as I reloaded. This time, however, he went through his dialogue and he brought the search to the next step. “
CD Projekt RED is aware of the problem and has also provided a workaround. You can also try these four steps:
- Reload the game before Takemura and V leave Wakako’s office;
- End the conversation with Takemura outside of the office from the start;
- Right after the conversation ends and the quest is updated, skip the next 23 hours in the game;
- Then you should double check that Takemura’s conversation is being carried out correctly.
As we are unfortunately used to from CDPR at the moment, we must first wait until the bug is patched from the game. You can at least continue to play with the workarounds.
