Cyberpunk 2077 saves larger than 8MB will corrupt, CDPR confirms

Cyberpunk 2077 saves that are larger than 8MB will corrupt and become unplayable, developer CD Projekt Red has confirmed.

Redditors began to notice that PC game saves larger than 6MB will take quite a while to load, while game saves of 8MB won’t load at all. In a support page on, this information was confirmed.

“Unfortunately the save is damaged and can’t be recovered,” the ticket begins. “Please use an older save file to continue playing and try to keep a lower amount of items and crafting materials.”

Further, the site suggests that, “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.”

Thank goodness for autosaves, right? Be aware.

Cyberpunk 2077 is currently available on Windows PC and Xbox One; the game was recently removed from the PlayStation Store.
