According to a message received by Twitter user , Ubisoft has confirmed that a save file-corrupting bug found in South Park: The Fractured But Whole will be fixed in the game's next update.

The bug has been discovered by countless players since the game's release last week, with people taking to the likes of Twitter to share their frustrations. Users have noticed that a scene which tasks you with following Wendy into a phone store triggers an eternal loading screen, often corrupting save files in the process.
