Cyberpunk 2077 - CD Projekt Red
Cyberpunk 2077 - CD Projekt Red

CD Projekt Red just can’t catch a break. The developers of the recent Cyberpunk 2077 announced that the company has been the victim of a cyber attack. The Poland based gaming studio announced on Twitter that a hacker had invaded their network, encrypting their data in an attempt to use it as ransomware. A note left by the “hacker” threatens to release vital company information, including the source codes to their most popular titles, The Witcher 3, Gwent, and Cyberpunk 2077. 

In their statement, CD Projekt Red also said it reached out to all ex-employees to prepare for potential Fraud attempts and reach out to the company for more information. However, they claim to have found no evidence of such a breach and refuse to cooperate with the hacker. “We will not give in to the demands nor negotiate with the actor, being aware that this may eventually lead to the release of the compromised data,” CD Projekt Red wrote. The company said it has secured its network and is currently restoring its lost data through its back-up servers. 
CD Projekt Red has lately been in the limelight after the troubling release of their highly anticipated flagship title, Cyberpunk 2077. Both Sony and Microsoft pulled the game for the immense backlash it received for poor optimizations on their consoles. CD Projekt Red has vowed to fix the problems with their game with future fixes and patches. The studio continues its difficult path on its road to redemption. Will they make it? We have yet to see.
