AS the title states. Got the patch 3.0 and all my career progress was lost. It wasn't corrupt but all of the progress had reset itself to 0, zero to hero was back to zero. Favourite car was a Ford when before the patch it was the BMW 1M. Total play time jumped from 65 hours to 117 hours and my season that I was in pre-patch was halfway though suddenly said I had abandoned it.

Not impressed. 3rd time I've lost career progress because of a patch.

If it wasn't corrupted before it sounds like it probably is now.

Wasn't corrupted before. All was fine yesterday. Pissed off is an understatement. Every single patch so far has fucked up my career.

FM6 can't come soon enough IMO. I've been more than patient with this game. Fuming.

Sorry to hear that, I wish I could help you. Feel a bit responsible by giving you a hint how it worked for me.

Is there a possibility to save the game save to an USB-stick or sd-card on the Xb1? I did this now and then on the 360. After resetting it to factory settings I was able to put the saved data back to the cloud.

try deleting the save file from the console, but not the cloud, then re sync the game. it will re download the save from the cloud back to the console. may work.

I've never seen a game with the percentage of patches that corrupt saved data as PCARS.

I feel your pain.

Tried all of the above. Didn't work. Had to start a new career and now PCars is frozen on the launch screen where the SMS/WMD Logo shows. This is ridiculous.

Are you loading via disc or digital? The reason I ask is that I had that a couple of months ago and I took the disc out gave it a little clean and worked a treat. Even though the disc never left the Xbox in that time.

If you must start over again, maybe it's best to delete your player file (everyware) and reinstall the game and start with a fresh game save, a computer program rarely works optimally when doing a major upgrade, a new fresh installation always works best, it is the same with Windows.
