The launch of Cyberpunk 2077 has been a nightmare. The game has launched in an incredibly buggy state. The game was so buggy that various retailers even had to offer refunds. This even coalesced into Sony removing the game from the PlayStation Store, that’s a huge deal. So one would think that there would be an onus to avoid more problems.
And now, Cyberpunk 2077 saves are getting caught up in all the mess. There is a bug in versions of the game that would cause saves to be corrupted. It turns out that the game would always corrupt saves if they went over certain file sizes. That limit was only 8 MB, and it was really easy to pass. That meant that players who played the game with tons of crafting and items, it was really easy to screw up and lose your save. You could very easily lose all your progress in the game if this bug struck.
The biggest problem with this has to do with the game itself. The advice from CDPR was that players would have to avoid the bug by not playing too much of the game, yes really. The advice was pretty terrible, but that meant that fans had to wait until the patch came out. The scope of the game and the tons of content means that players will easily eclipse this 8 MB limit. That’s a big problem because it means you cannot experience the full game.
Cyberpunk 2077’s latest patch fixes this issue, finally. That means gamers will no longer encounter the bug. Cyberpunk 2077 saves should be able to go beyond the limit, allowing the full game to be played. There are still plenty of issues though, but at least this one is one less on the pile. So make sure to download the patch to protect your Cyberpunk 2077 saves.
CD Projekt Red are still in a lot of trouble over the game though, as there are rumblings over lawsuits from investors as well. Simply put, folks are not happy pretty much anywhere.
