According to Vice, on Thursday February 18, two different Twitter users were notified of a DMCA code release for the Gwent card game. At least one of the tweets in question contained a link to the game’s source code.
Hackers left a ransom note after committing the attack on CD Projekt, but the company said it would not give in to those demands when it initially shared the news as it knew the data could be released if it didn’t agree.
The memo itself states that the source code for four different projects was stolen, including the three games mentioned above, as well as an unreleased version of The Witcher 3. Other administrative data was also stolen. It didn’t take long for many to joke about how the hacking interface in Cyberpunk 2077 made everything possible.
CD Projekt Red continues to work on updates to improve Cyberpunk 2077 as its public image had a huge hit in December when the game was released in Limit State. The game has even been withdrawn from PlayStation Store sales, and refund programs have been introduced for unhappy customers. Real next-gen releases are slated for later this year, and a multiplayer experience is on the way too.
