CD Projekt Red, a video game studio best known for the game franchise The Witcher, reported yesterday design documents for their upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 have been stolen. It’s unclear if this means they no longer have the documents or just that copies, perhaps even digital, have been acquired by a party outside the company.
The company claims a ransom demand has been made but they will not pay it. The theives claim they will release the design documents to the public if the ransom is not paid. The documents have not been released anywhere online at this time.
According to CD Projekt Red, the documents that were stolen our old and will likely indicate what the final game will be like, should they be leaked to the public.
