As it happened to Valve when they were about to launch Half-Life 2, today CD Projekt RED confirms through a press release that an unknown group claim to have the development files related to Cyberpunk 2077. These individuals are demanding a ransom to prevent the development files’ release to the public.

“An individual or unidentified individuals have informed us that they have in their possession some internal files belonging to CD Projekt RED among other documents related to the initial designs of our next game, Cyberpunk 2077.
A ransom demand was made, saying that if we fail, the files will be released to the general public. We are not going to get carried away by these demands of the individual or the individuals who have contacted us, which may eventually result in those files being published. The appropriate legal authorities will be informed of this situation.
The documents are old and do not represent at all the current vision of the game. Anyway, if you expect to play Cyberpunk 2077, it is best to avoid any information that does not come directly from CD Projekt RED.
When the time is right, they will know more about Cyberpunk 2077 from us – officially. “
The documents are old and largely unrepresentative of the current vision for the game. Fans have been waiting for new details on Cyberpunk 2077 since the game was reported in 2012. CD Projekt Red studio head Adam Badowski said not long ago that improvement on the game was “very best in class,” with a few hundred individuals are now working on the Cyberpunk 2077 title. We trust in the quality of CD Projekt RED works, so in this case we will wait to see what they have to show.
