The problems just keep coming for CD Projekt Red and the embattled Cyberpunk 2077. You may think you are safe while playing the adventures of V and Johnny Silverhand on the best platform available, the PC, but that is far from the case. A new Cyberpunk 2077 save corruption bug has been discovered. The scariest part is that it can stop you dead in your tracks with no solution.
All it takes for the Cyberpunk 2077 save corruption bug to occur is a save file exceeding 8 MB in size. Sure doesn’t sound like a lot, but its ramifications are huge. Corrupted files are not recoverable, and that is progress forever lost.
Currently, there are no explanations as to why this is happening. According to an official help page from CD Projekt Red, there is only a stopgap solution for this. If the unfortunate bug happens, you have to revert to an earlier save to continue. More importantly, you will need to keep your items and crafting materials low in number.
This Cyberpunk 2077 save corruption bug will definitely affect a large number of players. Even as the developers look to solve this issue, things may still be irrecoverable. While the save file size limit may get increased in the future, your corrupted files will not be saved.
You may want to lay off that crafting. Don’t overdo it lest your save game gets nixed.
The discovery of the bug follows the latest patch for the game that brings with it plenty of hotfixes. As more of the community shared their issues with the Cyberpunk 2077 save corruption, some began to speculate about just what might have caused it. The common consensus is that the game is running out of index space for crafted items.
Whatever is causing this Cyberpunk 2077 save corruption, CD Projekt Red is going to be working very hard to deal with the issue. Of course, it is not the only one they have to deal with when it comes to its latest game.
