Those playing Cyberpunk 2077 should be aware that if their save files get above 8MB, they may become permanently corrupt and unusable.
Redditor MagicTacoSauce posted a PSA alerting others to the issue, and GOG.com - which is owned by Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red - offered a response that is not overly promising.
"Unfortunately the save is damaged and can't be recovered," The statement reads. "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."
Cyberpunk 2077: Hotfix 1.06 Has Fixed the Save File Corruption Issue - IGN
Cyberpunk 2077's Hotfix 1.06 has removed the 8MB save file size limit that was causing certain save files to become permanently corrupt if they went over the limit. Unfortunately, it will not fix save files that were corrupted before the update.
