, Larian Studios acknowledged the bug and said Microsoft hasn't been able to fix it yet because less people are working over the holidays. Instead, it announced the following work-around that lets players make sure their games are saved:

  1. Create a Larian account at

    .
  2. Go to the options menu from the main menu. Under gameplay, activate cross-saves, linking your Larian and Xbox accounts.
  3. From now on, your last 5 saves will automatically be uploaded to the larian servers. It is important that you do not exit the game before the upload is finished. The upload is finished when the message “Syncing cloud save” is no longer visible.
  4. If the firmware bug occurs, you will need to re-activate the cross-save functionality in the options screen. This will give you access to the save games that were successfully uploaded.

Larian Studios mentioned that the issue is happening because of a firmware issue that causes the game to believe a save was completed when it hasn't been fully committed to the disk. It also plans to increase the number of save games that get uploaded via cloud saves to make this work-around easier for players.

"We completely understand that losing progress is frustrating, and unacceptable," Larian Studios wrote in the post. "We’re doing everything we can to ensure this problem - which we understand is unique - is resolved as quickly as possible, and we’ll keep you up to date with progress."
