CD PROJEKT RED has been hacked. Hackers threaten to leak the source code of Cyberpunk 2077 to the Net.

CD PROJEKT RED hacked. The company announced it this morning in a tweet posted on its official account . The hackers left a ransom note, threatening to release the source code for several games developed by CD PROJEKT RED , including Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher 3 and Gwent. The hackers also claim to have stolen documents related to personnel, accounting, administration, legal matters, and investor relations. However, the company is unwilling to yield to the ransom demand.

Yesterday we found ourselves the victim of a targeted cyber attack that compromised some of our internal systems.

An unknown entity gained unauthorized access to our internal network, collected certain data belonging to the capital group CD PROJEKT, and left a ransom note, the contents of which we publish. Although some devices on our network are encrypted, our backups remain intact. We have already secured our IT infrastructure and started data recovery.


We will not yield to requirements and will not negotiate with the subject knowing that this could ultimately lead to the disclosure of compromised data. We are taking the necessary steps to mitigate the impact of such a release, in particular by reaching out to any parties that may be affected by the breach.

We are still investigating the incident, but we can currently confirm that, to the best of our knowledge, the compromised systems did not contain any personal data of our players or users of our services.


We have already reached out to the relevant authorities, including law enforcement and the President of the Office of Personal Data Protection, as well as IT forensic experts, and we will work closely with them to fully investigate this incident.


This is certainly bad news for a company already busy fixing the console version of Cyberpunk 2077 (ironically, a game that is heavily about hacking).
