An unknown individual or individuals have gotten hold of design documents for Cyberpunk 2077 and holding them ransom. These documents are said to be from early development, but the exact time frame is unclear as Cyberpunk 2077 was originally announced at the start of 2013.
CD Projekt Red, the developer of The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077, has refused to give into the demands. Instead they have informed the proper authorities and made a statement on Twitter. In the statement they inform gamers that whatever documents come out are “largely unrepresentative” of the current game. They also state proper information on the game will come when the time is right.
At the time of writing, none of the supposed documents have surfaced and no one has been named responsible for taking them.
