Cyberpunk 2077 PC saves become corrupted because they’re too big
Following reports of Cyberpunk 2077 save files becoming corrupted, CD Projekt has advised that people effectively try to play the game less.
While Cyberpunk 2077’s overall launch has been an unmitigated disaster, with Sony going so far as to delist it from the PlayStation Store, the PC version has got away with the least amount of problems.
However, reports have begun to crop up that the PC version has quite possibly the worst bug discovered so far.
Multiple players on CD Projekt’s own forums, and on Reddit, have reported that their save files have become unexpectedly corrupted and, thus, no longer usable.
What’s especially bizarre is that the bug is tied to the size of the save files. Basically, if your save file gets any larger than 8GB, it corrupts and you can’t continue your game.
As for what causes a save file’s size to increase, it seems to be tied to the number of items a player owns in-game, with one player discovering this after spending a lot of time crafting.
Naturally, this has upset players since it effectively wastes all the hours they’ve spent on the game and has made others anxious about continuing their playthroughs.
In a post on GOG, CD Projekt acknowledges the bug, confirms that there is no way to recover the files, and provides a solution, though said solution has not gone down well with players either.
‘Unfortunately the save is damaged and can’t be recovered. Please use an older save file to continue playing and try to keep a lower amount of items and crafting materials.
‘If you have used the item duplication glitch, please load a save file not affected by it. The save file size limit might be increased in one of the future patches, but the corrupted files will remain that way.’
What CD Projekt is essentially saying is that, in order to avoid corrupted saves, players need to play the game less, which is doubly ironic considering how much content there is in Cyberpunk 2077.
This is only the latest string of disasters for both Cyberpunk 2077 and CD Projekt. Not only are fans extremely disappointed with how the game turned out, but the company’s own investors are considering a potential lawsuit against CD Projekt for issuing misleading information.
Cyberpunk 2077 is available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Stadia. PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S versions are still planned for 2021.
