Cyberpunk 2077 “Asset Theft” in 2017 Led to CDPR To “Take Action”

Thankfully, the game was not leaked!

Cyberpunk 2077

CD Projekt RED’s Cyberpunk 2077, their first new game since The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt brought them into the big league, is hopefully due out soon. But it ha been a long time coming, and anticipation for it has been running rampant- which I imagine some unsavory type thought to take advantage of, because speaking to shareholders recently, CD Projekt President and Join CEO Adam Kiciński revealed that the game had been victim of an asset theft last year- something that we had already known of, with the thieves holding the assets to ransom.

According to Kiciński, the asset theft led to CD Projekt RED to take action against the thieves, and that the company has become even more proactive about and dedicated to security now than it was before.

Thankfully, nothing was leaked- something like that may have done a lot of damage after all. CD Projekt RED are masters of their craft, who deserve to be able to show off the labors of their love on their own terms. Cyberpunk is due out on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, presumably next year, with a reveal anticipated for this E3.
