As if Cyberpunk 2077 didn’t have enough problems, now it’s under fire from malicious-intending hackers. At least, if you ask the hackers. Polish based video game creator CD Projekt says that hackers have accessed their systems and now the hackers are blackmailing the company.
CD Projekt says that it will not negotiate in any way with hackers’ demands. CD Projekt says hackers accessed their internal, private network. They believe they encrypted devices and obtained some information from the network. The company claims that private consumer information, AKA gamers, are unscathed in the attack. In other words, the hackers accessed no consumer personal data.
That’s a good thing, so long as it’s true.
As it stands, the hackers claim to hold source code for Cyberpunk 2077, Witcher 3, and Gwent.
