Cyberpunk 2077, Witcher 3 source code reportedly already up for auction following CD Projekt hack

Stolen source code for Cyberpunk 2077, free-to-play card-battler Gwent, and an unreleased version of The Witcher 3 are reportedly already up for auction after developer CD Projekt refused to cave in to ransom demands by hackers following a breach of its servers.

Yesterday, CD Projekt released a statement claiming an “unidentified actor” had gained unauthorised access to its internal network over the weekend and collected a range of data. A note accompanying the attack gave the developer 48 hours to “come to an agreement” regarding source code and documents – relating to accounting, administration, legal, HR, and investor relations – stolen from its servers, otherwise it would begin to sell or leak them online.

For its part, CD Projekt pledged it would “not give in to the demands nor negotiate with the actor, being aware that this may eventually lead to the release of the compromised date.” It also said it was taking “necessary steps to mitigate the consequences of such a release, in particular by approaching any parties that may be affected.”
