We thought we were safe. We were wrong. We were so wrong. Cyberpunk 2077 has had a disastrous launch since its launch, and given that the game has now reached its beloved 2.0 update and the Phantom Liberty DLC, players are happy that the bugs and glitches are gone. The hellish days have been left behind.
The future of Night City lies ahead, and even though the developers aren’t paying much attention to Cyberpunk 2077 that we have, save for bug fixes, we still have a lot to explore in the new content on offer. And thankfully, we’re mostly bug-free. Unfortunately, a bug is returning…tough.
Cyberpunk 2077 has a bug that corrupts files.
He stings. A new bug seems to have come out of the woodwork in Cyberpunk 2.0 on PS5, causing players to completely lose their saves. You were warned to start a new save file before starting the Idris Elba-led DLC, and while it wasn’t your choice, it’s a mistake that has cost you dearly.
It is believed that this bug is caused by players trying to save on the base game to play the new Phantom Liberty DLC, but there is no real proof of this. CD Projekt Red suggested that this might be the case, but there is no official report yet. And it gets worse. Much worse.
You cannot recover your corrupted PS5 files
CD Projekt Red claims that the bug has been fixed in a new patch dubbed Cyberpunk 2.01And while others have been put out of their misery, it’s now been confirmed that PS5 users won’t be able to recover their damaged saves.
The patch notes read, “Fixed a corrupt save issue on PlayStation by increasing the maximum save file size limit.“It comes with an unfortunate warning that explains,”This will not fix saves that were corrupted before the update. If you’re having problems, keep a working save (eg re-save it as a manual save) until 2.01 comes out.“
A patch is supposedly coming soon, but for many, that’s not enough. In a massive RPG like Cyberpunk, missing out on such a huge development is a fate worse than death for some. It seems that little cyberpunk isn’t quite over yet.
