CD PROJEKT RED has released hotfix 1.06 for the PC and console versions of Cyberpunk 2077. The release notes are rather short, but the patch does address the recently reported issue of save files being corrupted after exceeding 8 MB. According to GOG’s support document (and the testimony of annoyed players), this issue would occur if the amount of item and crafting materials got too high.

GOG has pointed out that damaged save files, unfortunately, cannot be saved, but it is continuing its investigation into why save files are bigger than expected. Hotfix 1.06 should also reduce crashing in the console versions thanks to improved memory management and stability.

Hotfix 1.06 Changes


  • Dum Dum will no longer go missing from Totentanz entrance during Second Conflict.


  • Improved memory management and stability, resulting in fewer crashes.


  • Removed the 8 MB save file size limit. Note: this won’t fix save files corrupted before the update.

“Unfortunately the save is damaged and can’t be recovered,” GOG previously wrote. “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 save file size limit might be increased in one of the future patches, but the corrupted files will remain that way.”
