Cyberpunk 2077 slow loading times: How to speed up loading screens on PS4, Xbox One, PS5, PC, Google Stadia or Xbox Series X/S

Cyberpunk 2077 is here, and it has arrived with its fair share of bugs, glitches and error codes.

One such problem with the game is its slow loading screens, which, for some players, are causing lengthy gaps between playable moments. This, of course, is always a cause for frustration among gamers.

How to fix Cyberpunk 2077 slow loading screens on PS4, Xbox, PC and other platforms

If you're a PC player that hasn't yet added an SSD to their build, now may well be the time to take the plunge and buy one. Having an SSD and storing Cyberpunk 2077 should make loading times so much faster for PC players.

If you're playing on PS5 or Xbox Series X, make sure that you've got the game stored on your console's internal SSD storage rather than any external optional you may have plugged into the machine yourself. A quick trip to the storage section of your settings should make this fairly easy, and it'll make the loading times on the game quicker.

Another thing that will help PS5 and Xbox Series X/S players is the upcoming next-gen upgrade for the game, which will surely improve the loading times and a lot of other things too.

If you're playing on PS4, Xbox One or Google Stadia, though, it's hard to recommend anything that will massively help. We could offer general tips such as 'don't run any other apps, downloads or games while you're playing Cyberpunk', but it's hard to say how much benefit they'll have.

You could try and install an SSD into your previous-gen console (there are plenty of guides online for that), but that's not really how the PS4 or Xbox One were designed to be used, so we can't promise that you won't cause more problems for yourself in the process.

Perhaps an upcoming patch from the developers at CD Projekt Red will hope speed up the loading, but that could just be wishful thinking on our part.

What other problems does Cyberpunk 2077 have?

This is far from the only problem plaguing Cyberpunk 2077 at the moment: as with a lot of big titles these days, this game has launched with plenty of kinks that need to be ironed out.

Some players keep seeing crashes, accompanied by an error code that says the game has 'flatlined' - not terrifying at all, that.

Other players have seen trees popping up all over the place, which is just plain weird, to be honest.

Over on Steam, meanwhile, some people have reported that the game doesn't want to download at all.

There have also been reports of stick drift and crackly audio, which will not be music to your ears or your thumbs.

There have also been reports of freezes and lag spikes, which is pretty much par for the course with game launches at the moment. But still, we're certainly looking forward to that next patch.
