Moreover, Ubisoft has given some handy tips on how to avoid the corrupt save error and what to do if you encounter it.

Do not overwrite cloud storage save

Firstly, to avoid the error, Ubisoft has instructed players to not overwrite cloud storage saves when saving your game manually.

CIRRUS ISSUE: Do not overwrite any cloud storage game saves

You can identify cloud storage saves with the little cloud icon (pictured above) - for the time being, avoid overwriting this type of save.

What to do if your save games are corrupted

Ubisoft has also stated that if all your save games are displayed as corrupted when you try to load your game, don't panic too much...

Simply restart the game and choose 'Continue' on the Title Screen, rather than manually trying to load your game.

This should continue your latest saved game without a problem.
