[Update]: Cyberpunk 2077's biggest bug-fixing Patch 1.5 has now finally arrived alongside an assortment of improvements and quality-of-life tweaks.

If you were hoping that most of Cyberpunk 2077's major issues would be fixed by the time the holiday season rolls around, I'm afraid I have some bad news to deliver. According to the freshly updated roadmap, all of Cyberpunk 2077's patches, improvements and free DLC have been pushed back to 2022.

What exactly the free DLC will be about, CDPR hasn't said just yet, but judging by the previous one I think it's best to dial down your expectations. If I were to hazard a guess, I'd say the next one will likely bring with it a couple of new cosmetics to toy around with, as well as maybe a sidequest or two to flesh out the world.

So unless you're extremely eager to dive into Cyberpunk 2077, I'd recommend giving CDPR some time and simply waiting on next year's big update. Mind you, I don't say that because the current version of Cyberpunk 2077 is broken or unplayable, but rather because it just doesn't have the level of polish one would expect from CDPR. As such, playing through it now would just be a somewhat okay experience, whereas waiting could result in you playing a much more fleshed out game, and one that's closer to the team's original vision.

Whatever the future may bring, I'll make sure to let you know once CDPR starts rolling out the updates once more. Until then, you can read a little bit more about the roadmap over at the Cyberpunk website.
