I see a lot of topics on the web and on this forum about infinite loading screens which appears to be the autosaves getting corrupted. Most of these posts were made months ago and it's now the end of December 2017.

Why hasn't this annoying bug been fixed yet? I'm thinking of ditching this game as when you load an autosave it saves again and corrupts then if you keep trying you have no save games that will load. This forces me to manually save often and even then sometimes they won't load either. Progress bar stays at 100% loading and goes no further in 90% of cases. Sometimes will load if left 10 mins or so which isn't acceptable either.

Happens even on foot (someone suggested it only corrupts save games when in the Nomad) but I can confirm it doesn't. Died after boss fight and could not continue the game without loosing a lot of progress. Happened on Voeld.

 

Even bigger issue even this bug report form does not work on google chrome; no submit button. Only works on Microsoft Edge. Someone is having a laugh.
