Another Bug Reveals Cyberpunk 2077 File Corrupts If Larger Than 8MB

Despite the two hotfixes that developer CD Projekt Red has released for Cyberpunk 2077, players are still reporting bug after bug. Some players are reporting that their Cyberpunk 2077 save files are becoming corrupted if they exceed a certain file size according to Eurogamer.


A corrupt Cyberpunk 2077 file will show an error message like: “saved data is damaged and cannot be loaded”. It is still unclear what is corrupting the file after the save, but it seems it happens when the saves reach the 8MB size.


Multiple players on CD Projekt Red’s Reddit forums report that their files corrupted after exceeding the 8MB size. Reports initially indicated that the issue affects the game across all platforms, but some now suggest it’s only a PC issue.

Cyberpunk 2077’s developer CD Project RedVideo has on game distributing platform, GOG’s website, confirmed the issue.

The developer recommends that you keep “a lower amount of items and crafting materials,” as there’s no way to recover the save.


“Unfortunately the save is damaged and can’t be recovered. 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 message said.


It also says that while the save might increase the file limit in a future patch the corrupted files will “remain that way”. Meaning the files are irredeemable and gone for good.



The studio had previously promised to release two large patches to fix the bug in Cyberpunk 2077 in 2021. Reports say that users will get one in January 2021 and the other in February 2021. It will most likely try to fix the bugs with the patches before the players can enjoy the game.
