Someone stole Cyberpunk 2077 information and is holding it for ransom, says CD Projekt Red
Coming up in the 'some people suck' department
CD Projekt Red, the developers behind the 'The Witcher' series and the folks working on the highly anticipated 'Cyberpunk 2077', have revealed that someone has stolen internal files from them that include early designs for Cyberpunk 2077.
The thief is holding the files for ransom and is threatening to release the information to the public if the developers do not comply. CD Projekt Red has contacted the authorities, but it appears as though they won't be paying up for the files.
According to CD Projekt Red, the stolen information are "old and largely unrepresentative of the current vision for the game." While the developers call the information 'old' they suggest that anyone who is looking forward to the game should avoid any unofficial information on the upcoming game.
If the information is no longer applicable to the current game, why should anyone interested in the game avoid it? If the developers moved forward with other concepts, these concepts shouldn't sway anyone's hype - as long as it's made clear that the information is old.
