If you’re playing Batman: Arkham City on the Xbox 360, you may want to make a note to create save backups as often as possible, as a significant amount of users have discovered a rather nefarious bug that can corrupt your save data.
Bugs of this nature are typically uncommon in games, and when they do occur it generally only effects a small number of players, but as you’ll see if you head on over to the thread on the official Batman: Arkham City forums, this bug is a little too common.
Warner Bros. Interactive said in a statement that it was aware of the issue and is working hard to fix it, but there’s currently no timeline on a fix, nor is there word of a workaround other than obsessively backing up your save files as often as possible.
If you believe you’ve been hit with this nasty bug, you can head over to this thread to read the reports of others or provide a report of your own. We’ll let you know as soon as Warner Bros. Interactive sends word of a fix being inbound.
