The recent release of Phantom Liberty has seen a major boost in popularity for Cyberpunk 2077, with fans returning to Night City to experience new content, from Solomon Reed to the fixes brought by the free 2.0 update. Unfortunately, the sudden influx of both old and new players means problems are inevitable. CD Projekt Red has just clarified one of them, talking about the reasons for incorrect synchronization of autosaves.
The Cyberpunk 2077 developer mentions the success of the new expansion, saying: “With thousands of players joining Phantom Liberty, we are seeing a lot of traffic on our Cross Progression backend.” CD Projekt Red continues by saying that fans “may experience temporary delays in autosave synchronization.” It appears that autosaves are the only saves that are currently having issues, as the devs write that manual saves, quick saves, and point of no return saves will “continue to sync as normal.”
Considering the recent 2.0 update and, of course, Phantom Liberty, problems with autosave are understandable. The number of players for Cyberpunk 2077 on Steam is simply unimaginable right now, with the game having more than three times the number of players as Starfield.
Fortunately, the current issue with autosaves not syncing correctly is easily fixed and does not harm the popularity of Cyberpunk 2077. If your game is affected by this, simply use manual saves until you notice that autosaves work as usual again.
