 The files stolen by the hackers are for "Cyberpunk 2077", an open world RPG game based on the real life table role playing game Cyberpunk 2020.  


 According to a statement posted on Twitter, the Polish studio who are the makers of the popular RPG game "The Witcher 3" has said that they wont be bowing down to the demands of the hackers. Find full statement below:



Dear gamers,

An unidentified individual or individuals have just informed us they are in possession of a few internal files belonging to CD PROJEKT RED. Among them are documents connected to early designs for the upcoming game, Cyberpunk 2077.

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 about Cyberpunk 2077 from us - officially.

CD PROJEKT RED Team
