My Settings Keep Resetting to Default

I recently installed Fallout 3 on my Xbox One. I figured the cell load times would probably be shorter than on my 360. They are. Much shorter. That's great.

What's not great is that every time I load up the game I have to set my settings again. All settings reset to default. I have to change the difficulty, re-invert the look, change the audio settings, turn on subtitles, and remap VATS, change look, and sneak. That's annoying.

The game indicates that it is "Saving..." the settings, but they still disappear next time I play.

Why do my settings keep resetting, and how do I make them stick?

I fiddled around with this for a while last night. I have no idea why it's happening, but I did find a workaround.

If, from the main menu, I first open the Settings menu, before pressing Load or Continue, the Settings menu opens with my saved settings. I can then leave the Settings menu without changing anything, load my game, and the settings are saved.

If I Load or Continue without first opening the Settings menu, then my settings are reset to default.

So, open the Settings menu from the main menu before loading your saved game.

I downloaded the game on xbox one about 3 days ago and I'm getting the same problem with my settings defaulting. Only mine reset within 2minutes. I know this from the dialogue colour. I've changed them from the main menu but they don't apply to my continued game. I've deleted the game and reinstalled it and still happens. Anyone got any suggestions?
