CD Projekt RED has recently announced Cyberpunk 2077 patch 2.01 to fix the PS5 save corruption bug.

It has been circulating online that Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty has a rather annoying problem, specifically on the PS5 console. Currently, it is unclear how widespread this nasty issue is, but there are a lot of posts on Reddit and social media complaining about this.

Players have been reporting that their PS5 save files are getting corrupted for some reason, which prevents them from loading them up. This scares them because it potentially loses them hundreds of hours of playtime. “We are currently investigating an issue for PlayStation 5 where save files may get corrupted after playing Phantom Liberty for some time using the base game save,” the developer writes on its official support page.

“We recommend not to overwrite the existing base game saves when playing Phantom Liberty,” the post adds. “Thank you for your patience while we’re working on a fix.”

CDPR is now working on a fix, but its current status is “coming soon”. Patch 2.01 will fix the PS5 corruption bug, plus a few fixes and more like louder radio audio, the ability to cycle to army weaponry, and improve technical performance.

  • The distorted effect caused by selecting a specific dialogue option when talking to Johnny at the end of Automatic Love will no longer persist on the screen.
  • V will no longer die in The Heist by falling through the elevator when riding to the 42nd floor with low FPS.
  • Fixed an issue where the UI could show controller inputs when playing with keyboard and mouse.
  • Made it possible to properly switch to arms cyberware by cycling through weapons.
  • Gig: Breaking News will be properly triggered after approaching the quest area.
  • Vehicle radio volume will be adjusted so it’s not too quiet when compared to other sounds in the game.
  • Addressed the issue of corrupted saves on PlayStation by increasing the maximum save file size limit. Note: this won’t fix the saves corrupted before the update. If you’re experiencing the issue, keep a working save (e.g. resave it as manual save) till 2.01 arrives.
  • Performance improvements for both PC and consoles, especially in the Dogtown area.

CDPR clarifies these are just the highlights so when the fix drops, more lines of the patch notes will be added.

Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty is now available on PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S.
