Cyberpunk 2077, an important feature will be disabled due to the “fault” of The Witcher 3

To better manage server traffic “because” of The Witcher 3, CD Projekt deactivates a feature of Cyberpunk 2077.

In a few hours The Witcher 3 Complete Edition will be officially available , the definitive edition of the beloved open world from CD Projekt: its launch, particularly awaited, is however about to create some consequences of no small importance for Cyberpunk 2077 .


CD Projekt has in fact warned fans that it wants to ensure that the migration can take place without a hitch: considering that The Witcher 3 upgrade will be available for free (you can get ready by retrieving it on Amazon ), the developers predict that there will be user traffic with very few precedents on their servers.

As a result, the team decided to make a difficult decision, choosing to temporarily disable the automatic loading of cloud saves for Cyberpunk 2077 : in this way the servers will be burdened as little as possible and any problems due to potential overloads will be prevented.


Of course this is only a temporary measure and designed to better manage the imminent sudden traffic of users, but the feature should be restored as soon as the development team no longer deems this drastic intervention necessary.

For the moment, CD Projekt did not want to reveal when the cloud upload of Cyberpunk 2077 cloud saves will return online, but the studio has reassured all its fans that it will keep them updated as soon as the feature is restored.


The uploads will officially stop starting today, from 12 PM CET : we therefore advise all fans to pay particular attention to their save files, at least for the next game days.



In any case, we remind you that the intervention only concerns the automatic loading of cloud saves: all other types of saves will continue to be loaded on the game servers, just as it already happens up to now.

The update should therefore affect only a small part of players, who could however be greatly affected by this lack: our advice is to keep an eye on the official communication channels of CD Projekt to find out when it will be possible to access the saves again in cloud.


We take this opportunity to remind you that The Witcher 3 Complete Edition will be available from tomorrow: in our review we told you that « the small measures for the quality of life integrate well into the experience and, although they do not change the cards on the table, allow you to better adapt the experience to your needs ».

In the meantime, we remind you that the Polish studio is also working on the Phantom Liberty expansion for Cyberpunk 2077 : the latest trailer shown at The Game Awards 2022 also revealed an important new character played by Idris Elba .

After the release of the expansion, it could also be time for the long-awaited GOTY edition of Cyberpunk 2077 : the studio has already confirmed that the adventure set in Night City will also receive the same treatment as The Witcher 3 .
