A few weeks after launch, it appears that Cyberpunk 2077 has become one of the biggest disappointments in video game history. When the ambitious role-playing shooter works, it can be a compelling experience that rivals some of the genre’s best, but it’s that whole getting it to work part that poses the most substantial problems.
Developer CD Projekt Red has had quite a few rough weeks, beginning when folks began lashing out over Cyberpunk 2077‘s handling of trans representation, which some still feel is exploitative and bordering on mockery. As if that wasn’t enough, though, the release of the title only made matters worse. Between an absolutely staggering amount of bugs – from annoying to game-breaking – and console versions that look like a mid-gen PS3 effort, it’s quite clear now that Cyberpunk 2077 simply wasn’t ready to be made available to the public.
If you’ve picked up the game on PC, you’ve likely had a much better time with it, though there are still a bevy of bugs and quirks and there’s been one utterly demoralizing glitch plaguing PC gamers since release. It’s a real doozy, too.
Save files on PC that reached over 8MB have been corrupting en masse, bringing a horrible damper on the fun of thousands of players worldwide who’ve spent hours making progress just to see it all wiped. Thankfully, CD Projekt Red has now issued a fix that rectifies the issue and will allow for larger save file limits. However, if your file was corrupted prior to the release of Hotfix 1.06, the update won’t solve your problems, so you’ll still have to start over and play through everything again. Which is a real bummer.
Cyberpunk 2077 is available right now on PS4, Xbox One and PC, and you can head through here to see what we had to say about it in our review.
