Stolen source code for Cyberpunk 2077, free-to-play card-battler Gwent, and an unreleased version of The Witcher 3 are apparently currently 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 declaring an “unidentified star” had acquired unauthorised access to its internal network over the weekend and collected a variety of data. A note accompanying the attack gave the developer 48 hours to “pertain to an arrangement” concerning source code and documents – relating to accounting, administration, legal, HR, and investor relations – stolen from its servers, otherwise it would start to sell or leak them online.For its part, CD Projekt vowed it would “not succumb to the demands nor work out with the actor, knowing that this might ultimately result in the release of the compromised date.” It likewise stated it was taking “essential actions to alleviate the repercussions of such a release, in particular by approaching any celebrations that might be affected.”
Toms Hardware is reporting (based on details from vx-underground) that source code samples for Gwent have actually currently been dripped online, with full code – along with that of Cyberpunk 2077 and unreleased, potentially next-gen-related files for The Witcher 3 – set to be auctioned later today. The starting quote for the complete cache is set at $1,000 USD.CD Projekt is yet to react to this newest development, however did recommend former staff members take preventative measures following the leakage in an update tweet published last night.
