The Toughest Boss For ‘Sekiro’ Players On PC Is Save Data Corruption
Sekiro may just be the hardest game put out by Fromsoftware yet and that's without the danger of corrupt save data. Yet, some players on PC are having an even tougher time of it, finding when they log in their data is unusable and they need to start the whole game again.
Until Activision and Fromsoftware release a patch, if you're playing on PC, consider yourself at risk and backup your save - unless of course you want to embrace the challenge and risk of having to replay the entire game each time you load a saved game.
It seems that Steam's Cloud save feature is storing the corrupt version of the save so you can't rely on that to help you out if your save file does break. Instead you should run a manual backup.

You should be able to find your save file by searching for "AppData/Roaming/Sekiro", though you'll need to have hidden files viewable. To do that, right click within a folder, select properties, and select "view hidden files" in the menu.
And, hey, if you do end up losing your save, at least you can tell those scrubs on the internet that you played through the ultra hard mode.
