Cyberpunk 2077 players report frustrating game corruption bug

Turns out that Cyberpunk 2077 It has more bugs than a bug museum, except that the first ones are alive and well, causing a great deal of trouble for players.

Cyberpunk 2077 It was released to great fanfare earlier this month, but it soon became apparent that Poland-based CD Projeckt Red’s action RPG contained numerous flaws, especially on legacy consoles, which made it virtually unplayable. on some platforms.

While the company has already been quick to make several fixes in an attempt to make Cyberpunk 2077 more playable, another issue has arisen that is apparently causing more frustration among those interested in playing the game.

It involves permanent corruption of saved files, which can occur if they exceed 8MB, according to Eurogamer.

The bug was initially thought to affect all platforms, but current player reports suggest that the issue is affecting the PC version of CyberPunk 2077as well as Google Stadia saves.

This has yet to be confirmed by CD Projeckt Red, so for now the advice is to keep a small number of articles and crafting materials on whatever platform you are playing on while we wait for more information.

Support site GOG.com, which is owned by CD Projekt Red, posted a note on their site regarding the failure, saying that if it occurs, you will see this message:

GOG said that corrupted saves cannot be recovered, adding: “Please use an older save file to continue playing and try to keep fewer crafting items and materials. If you have used the item duplication error, upload a save file that is not affected by it. The save file size limit might increase in one of the future patches, but corrupted files will stay that way. “

According to PC Gamer, the situation “probably has something to do with the game running out of allotted index space for created items due to players doubling, [for example], a few thousand grenades. Or spend all your time collecting a lot of trash and using it to make ‘hundreds’ of grenades. “

Whatever the reason, the company must solve the problem as soon as possible or risk losing the trust of more players.

As CD Projeckt Red shares take a beating, Sony made the unprecedented decision late last week to withdraw Cyberpunk 2077 from your PlayStation Store and offer customers full refunds.

Digital Trends has reached out to CD Projekt Red, but says it will not speak directly to the press until January at the earliest.

In a statement on December 14, the company apologized for the game’s disastrous release and promised to roll out “two big patches” in January and February.
