Cyberpunk 2077 Asset Theft Led To CDPR Taking Legal Action

CD Projekt RED 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 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.

The company released its latest meeting of shareholders online which can be watched in the video below. It’s a bit on the chatty side but provides more information about the company as a whole. And if you watch carefully, you’ll find out that CD Projekt Red president and joint CEO Adam Kicinski wasn’t too pleased when some of the game’s assets were stolen last year.

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.

We’re hearing great things about this new project — and if it’s anywhere on the same level as the team’s previous work with The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, we’re in for something truly spectacular.

Cyberpunk 2077 doesn’t currently have a release date but it’s expected sometime in 2019 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, along with possible next-gen hardware that has yet to be confirmed.
