It turns out that Cyberpunk 2077 has more insects than an insect museum, except that the first ones are alive and well, causing a myriad of problems for players.
Cyberpunk 2077 was released with great fanfare earlier this month, but it soon became clear that the Polish-based CD Projekt Red RPG action game contained several flaws, especially on old consoles, making it virtually impossible to play on some platforms.
Although the company has already made several corrections in an attempt to make Cyberpunk 2077 more playable, another problem has emerged that apparently is causing more frustration among those who wish to play the game.
It involves the permanent corruption of saved files, which can happen if they exceed 8 MB, according to Eurogamer.
At first, the bug was thought to be affecting all platforms, but current player reports suggest that the problem is affecting the PC version of CyberPunk 2077, as well as Google Stadia’s bailouts.
This has not yet been confirmed by CD Projekt Red, so for now, the advice is to keep a small number of items and crafting materials, regardless of the platform you are playing on, while we wait for more information.
The support site GOG.com, owned by CD Projekt Red, posted a note on its website about the failure, saying that if it occurs, you will see this message:
GOG said that damaged rescues cannot be recovered, adding: “Please use an older saved file to continue playing and try to keep fewer items and crafting materials. If you used item duplication failure, upload a saved file that is not affected by it. The size limit of the saved file can be increased in one of the future patches, but the corrupted files will remain so. “
According to PC Gamer, the situation “probably has something to do with the game running out of index space allocated for items manufactured due to the duplication of players, [for example], a few thousand grenades. Or spending all your time collecting a lot of garbage and using it to make ‘hundreds’ of grenades. “
Whatever the reason, the company needs to resolve the issue as soon as possible or risk losing the trust of even more players.
While CD Projekt Red’s stock suffers a loss, Sony made the unprecedented decision last week to remove Cyberpunk 2077 from its PlayStation Store and offer customers a full refund.
Digital Trends contacted CD Projekt Red, but says it will not speak directly to the press until January, at least.
In a statement on December 14, the company apologized for the game’s dire release and promised to release “two major patches” in January and February.
