Fans on Twitter, Reddit, and beyond quickly picked up on the odd spelling. Some even questioned whether it might be deliberate – not as far-fetched an idea as it might seem, given that the developers have said one alleged typo is actually an intentional play on words.

In the case of the Nigth City sign, however, the most recent patch notes have made clear that it was not intentional after all, and will be seeing a fix. In the Environment and Levels section of the notes, a small note reads, “Fixed the misspelled Leaving Night City sign.”
If you haven’t already, it might be time to head to the tunnel and take a selfie with the sign, as it’s about to be consigned to the Recycle Bin of history. If you need to find it, check out our interactive Cyberpunk 2077 map – it’s right by the Border Checkpoint fast travel point.
As we said, it marks one small note in an avalanche of changes seemingly coming with the long-awaited 1.2 patch for the game. While it still doesn’t have a firm release date, CD Projekt Red has previously said that this patch would “fix the most prominent problems gamers are facing on last-gen consoles,” after the game launched with major issues, particularly for PS4 and Xbox One. Whether it then returns to the PS Store after more than 100 days remains an unanswered question.
