CD Projekt Red has confirmed that their upcoming game Cyberpunk 2077, is being held to ransom for “documents connected to early designs for the upcoming game, Cyberpunk 2077”.
They have said in a Twitter post, “A demand for ransom has been made, saying that should we not comply, the files will be released to the general public,” CD Projekt’s message continued. It said it has contacted the authorities and does not intend to pay the ransom, which it acknowledges might result in the files making their way online. It did not say what the ransom entails.
“The documents are old and largely unrepresentative of the current vision of the game,” it said. “Still, if you’re looking forward to playing Cyberpunk 2077, it would be best for you to avoid any information not coming directly from CD Projekt Red.”
