The Cyberpunk hits just keep on coming.

Click image for larger version  Name:	Save_damaged.png Views:	0 Size:	87.2 KB ID:	3507571Adding to the ever growing list of issues for Cyberpunk 2077 is one that could strike at any time and without warning. It has the potential to completely corrupt your save game with no way to recover it once it happens. This is a save game corruption that can, and will, happen to players if they allow their Cyberpunk 2077 save file to exceed 8MB in size.

This issue was initially reported as a problem across all platforms (Xbox, PlayStation, and PC), but may now just be a PC issue. There is no confirmation from CD Projekt Red either way on this, so all we have to go on right now is a notice that was put up by the folks at Of course, as GOG is owned by CD Projekt, this is about as close to an official response from the developers as we have seen to date.

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 warning goes on to say that this save file size "might" be increased in a future patch. However, even if that does happen, the corrupted files will remain corrupted and unrecoverable.

How can you avoid encountering this issue? You will have to keep a lower number of items in your inventory. This includes weapons, gear, armor, and even crafting materials. If you have an excess of any of these items, either sell them or drop the items that you no longer want nor need.

If you are on PC and want to check the file size for yourself, you can find your save files at
%userprofile%\Saved Games\CD Projekt Red\Cyberpunk 2077
From there, feel free to sort those folders by date modified and go to the latest save directory. You're going to want to look how big the "sav.dat" file is. If it's under 8MB in size, you're fine. If it's at or near 8MB in size, it's time to quickly thin your inventory if you can still access your game.
