Baldur’s Gate 3 Xbox Saves Still Broken One Month Later

Expert Verified By

Due To An Issue With Xbox Firmware!

Story Highlights
  • Baldur’s Gate 3 came out on Xbox Series S|X last month, but the game had a save bug that deleted progress for many users.
  • Larian has acknowledged this problem, stating that the issue is being caused due to a problem with Xbox’s firmware.
  • The developer states that the bug might not be fixed for a while despite persisting for nearly a month.

December was a massive month for Larian Studios and Baldur’s Gate 3. Not only did the team take home Game of the Year after setting a new bar for RPGs, but it also released the game on Xbox without any prior announcement.

The game immediately became a top seller on the platform, but it remains a problematic port. Nearly a month after its release, fans are frustrated with a persistent save issue on the platform.

Why it matters: Baldur’s Gate 3 received extra attention on the Xbox platform. In addition to various optimization improvements, the team spent months on other parts of the port, making it surprising that this issue was not found and dealt with earlier.

The game arrived on the Xbox Series S|X on 10 December. Since then, players have reported many issues. Many have been losing hours of progress, but Larian Studios and Xbox are yet to offer a definitive fix.

A new year has started today, so fans expected the issue to be solved by now. However, Larian Studios confirms that this problem is caused by an issue with the Xbox firmware, so the team cannot do much until Microsoft figures something out.

The developer acknowledged that many fans want to play Baldur’s Gate 3. Larian Studios also noted that the issue might last longer than expected due to the holidays, but the team has provided a temporary fix for Xbox Series S|X players.

Relying on Baldur’s Gate 3’s cross-save system is the best course of action for now. The developer has provided a step-by-step guide for this method, providing a temporary workaround until Xbox permanently fixes the problem.

Players can sync their progress to Larian’s servers, but those planning to enjoy the game without an active internet connection might be out of luck. Anyhow, we hope Xbox is quick to address this problem.

On platforms like Reddit, Baldur’s Gate 3 players have reported losing over 70 hours of progress, completely ruining the RPG experience for them. Still, Larian Studios is doing everything possible from its side to get things up and running, asking fans to stay patient as it provides new updates.

For now, relying on cross-saves is the safest method to play Baldur’s Gate 3 on Xbox Series S|X. There is no telling when the game might be fully fixed, but this workaround makes the problem much more manageable.
