Hackers gave CD Projekt 48 hours to start contact prior to “the source code will be sold or dripped online.”
“Investors will lose trust in your business and the stock will dive even lower.”
CD Projekt stated it will not work out with the hackers. It said its aware the “compromised data” may be launched, and the business is “taking essential steps to reduce the effects of such a release.” CD Projekt is dealing with authorities and “IT forensic professionals” to examine the hack.
CD Projekt and other shops were forced to provide refunds for the game, which was later pulled from Sonys PlayStation Store. CD Projekt is also facing numerous class action lawsuits from financiers.
Ahead of Cyberpunk 2077s launch, the company was slammed for “poor management and disregard for individuals who make our video games,” along with a history of transphobic marketing.
Studio executives at CD Projekt have given that excused the struggling launch.
” We ignored signals about the need for extra time to improve the game on the base last-gen consoles,” CD Projekt co-CEO Adam Kiciński stated in December. “It was the incorrect approach and against our company philosophy.”
CD Projekt Red, the developing arm at the company, has been launching spots and hotfixes for Cyberpunk 2077. Significant updates are coming later on this year, the developer said.

CD Projekt, the company behind Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3, was targeted Monday in a major “cyber attack,” according to a declaration released on Twitter. Hackers supposedly took “certain data belonging to CD Projekt capital group,” CD Projekt said. The business stated it is currently securing its servers and restoring encrypted information.
CD Projekt did not verify the data stolen, but said in its statement that no individual user information for any of its services was compromised.
