Internal Cyberpunk 2077 documents have been illegally obtained, which are connected to early designs for the game.
That’s what CD Projekt Red just confirmed via their official Twitter account. According to the Polish developer, they were contacted by an “unidentified individual or individuals”, who claimed to be in possession of “internal files” connected to CD Projekt Red’s upcoming RPG.
A demand for ransom has apparently been made, but CDPR won’t be giving in to these demands. CDPR states that the stolen documents are “old” and “largely unrepresentative” of the “current vision” for Cyberpunk 2077. You can read the rest of CD Projekt Red’s statement below:
“A demand for ransom has been made, saying that should we not comply, the files will be released to the general public. We will not be giving in to the demands of the individual or individuals that have contacted us, which might eventually lead to the files being published online. The appropriate legal authorities will be informed about the situation.
The documents are old and largely unrepresentative of the current vision for the game. Still, if you’re looking forward to playing Cyberpunk 2077, it would be best for you to avoid any information not coming directly from CD Projekt Red.
When the time is right, you will hear more about Cyberpunk 2077 from us – officially.”
Cyberpunk 2077 has yet to be fully revealed and its release date isn’t known at this point. Recent rumors suggest that it would release in 2019.
