After waiting patiently for Halo Infinite for the last six years, Master Chief is back and better than ever. Yet despite its glowing reviews and the countless players enthralled by Infinite’s multiplayer, a new save corrupting glitch has started to ruin the fun. Reported by players on Resetera and the Halo Waypoint forums, the glitch seems to cause players to reload the game in third person, before eventually proceeding to lose their save file entirely.
Both Xbox and PC players seem to be affected, it seems that there is a log-in related issue that erases your save file entirely.
