Cyberpunk 2077: Players Reporting Save Files Being Corrupted

share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

Cyberpunk 2077 has now been released for over a week.

For those who are playing on previous-generation consoles, it has been an eventful week, to say the least.


After a flurry of refund requests from unhappy players, Sony made a shocking decision to remove the game from their online store.

This doesn't seem to be the end of issues for CD Projekt Red, as a new Reddit post has alerted players about a possible glitch with their save files.

Here it is! 




A new Reddit post has attracted a lot of attention over on the r/pcgaming sub-Reddit.

The post was authored by u/p3ek and reads as follows: 

PSA your cyberpunk saves will become corrupted and unrecoverable if they reach 8mb in size


Basically if you craft too many things. Seems to be effecting people with a lot of hours who have been crafting loads of shit to make money, but how's this for a response from CD project :

Following the link they have posted, which can be viewed here; this is what the support page says.

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.

We will have to see if this problem gets resolved anytime soon, but it appears to be another one added to the list of issues with Cyberpunk 2077!
