[Update]: Cyberpunk 2077's Update 1.1 has brought in a brand new batch of bug fixes and improvements.

As you've likely heard by this point, Cyberpunk 2077 launched with quite a few issues in tow. The older consoles seem to be bearing the brunt of these problems, though even PC has its fair share of bugbears, everything from memory-related crashes to the always-fun save corruptions.

While many of the problems still remain, I am pleased to say that your save files are now finally safe thanks to the newest Hotfix 1.06. You can find the small list of changes over at the official website, but the important thing to note is that save files can now be larger than 8MB in size.

Why exactly such an arbitrary limitation was even there in the first place, I honestly have no idea. Whatever the case may be, you should now be able to play for however long you want without worrying whether you'll actually be able to load back in later. Unfortunately, save files that have already been corrupted are still bricked, so if you have been affected, you will need to reload a previous save even after this hotfix.

Once the next update goes live I'll make sure to let you know. For now, however, it might be a good idea to stay away from Cyberpunk 2077 and let CDPR fix all of the major issues before diving in.

If they end up following the example set by Horizon Zero Dawn, things should be in a pretty good place in a month of two. And since many of you have already been waiting for years, I'd say that's a small sacrifice to make for a significantly smoother experience!
