    For those having difficulty completing saved games after downloading the latest (July 2020) patch, Carl Harrison, Firaxis QA, has posted the following instructions about how to roll-back to a pre-patch "legacy" build of the game:
    These instructions are also contained in a sticky thread in the Civ 6 - Technical Support forum.

    Where did he post this? Are all games from prior saves now broken?

    He posted it in a Bug Report thread. I’ve no idea whether all pre-patch saves are broken by the patch.

    The problem of using the legacy branch is that if you have a save that's saved by the updated version (1.0.3.301) then it won't load. You have to roll back to a save that is saved by 1.0.2.39.

    I can say that at least two of my prepatch saves are still functioning.
