Save file corruption issue fixed for ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ players

Polish developer CD Projekt Red has just released Hotfix 1.06 for Cyberpunk 2077, which solves the annoying Save file corruption issue.

According to IGN, Cyberpunk 2077 game, since its launch, is giving a hard time for all the gamers. One of the irritating bugs regarding saving the game files has grown enormously in the last few weeks. But thankfully, CD Projekt Red has now released Hotfix 1.06 that fixes the issue for those facing the problem.

The latest fix removes the 8MB save file size limit used to cause some files to become permanently corrupt. And that used to happen whenever players went beyond this limit.

“Cyberpunk 2077”: Player struggling with gameplay!

Although the new release solves the persisting bug, it won’t fix those files that became corrupted before this update. So with a heavy heart, it seems like gamers will have to start their campaigns from the very beginning if they are way far in the story.

Well, talking about something else that Hotfix 1.06 improves is the memory management and stability on the consoles. And thus, from now on, there will be fewer crashes.

Speaking of the annoying problem that was giving tough time to players, it was mainly about saving the game. Whenever they were going above 8MB, the file was becoming totally corrupt.

However, this is not the only bug people are facing when it comes to Cyberpunk 2077. Since its highly-anticipated launch on December tenth, the title has constantly disappointed gaming fans.

Did CDPR miss the big opportunity?

Meanwhile, despite so many failures and disappointments, CD Projekt Red seems to be having a great time. Why? Because the official sales figures for the game were recently revealed. And as per them, the most-awaited “AAA” title of 2020 has sold 13 million copies worldwide!

But still, the refunds are going on from the side of online stores. Those players who faced severe performance issues in gameplay are demanding total cashback. It also makes sense, as the developer CDPR recently admitted that it didn’t check the title properly on all consoles. It simply means that even after so many delays and “overdrive” hours, it couldn’t make a great open-world RPG.

Overall, it can be said that the Polish developer did miss a huge opportunity with Cyberpunk 2077because it could’ve made it so huge, with a flawless launch and no bugs. But now that it’s out with so many ups and downs, it’s nothing more than a mixed bag, for sure.

However, it will likely attract the players once again due to the future patches and fixes, about to arrive in early 2021. And after that, hopefully, the game will become what everyone wanted it to be.
