Witcher 3 for Xbox One is Experiencing Save Bug
The Witcher, while receiving many favorable press this week, has one large problem. There is a bug that deletes large amounts of progress on the Xbox One. Game Informer’s Andrew Reiner has experienced these save issues himself. Having mentioned this bug on Twitter, he received a response from CD Projekt Red suggesting the following fix:
Please try clearing the cache as instructed below:
– Power down your console
– Unplug the power cable from the back of the Xbox One.
– Wait for two minutes
– Plug the power cable back into the back of the Xbox One
– Monitor the power brick, waiting for it to cycle from a white light to an orange light
– Turn the power on.
This will perform a hard reset of the system.
WARNING! There is another possible solution, however, this may result in losing progress if cloud saving s not on (for more information on cloud saving please consult http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-360/games/game-saves-in-the-cloud-faq )
– Go to the console’s settings / system / clear local saved games.
Upon re-starting the game should re-sync, become functional, and progress should be retained as long as the cloud is on.
This is a temporary solution to the problem and there are lots of players who are feeling very frustrated at the game currently. You can find Reiner’s full account of his situation at Game Informer’s website. In addition, if you want to read more solutions or report your issue to CD Projekt Red, you can visit their forums here.
