CD Projekt RED has announced that they have been hacked, and attackers have demanded a ransom or private documents, source code and more will be leaked online.
is it me or does this seem like a marketing stunt
A wild guess here, but are you American by any chance?
?? I don’t agree with him but that’s a bit Xenophobic don’t you think?
@gamer7804 He’s probably not wrong though 😅
@gamer7804, lol never go full snowflake!
As an American....that was a legit question. I mean we have QAnon here, skeptics plague the country.
Curiosity and skepticism are foundational for learning and evolving. Labeling runs counter to that and shuts people down. Ask questions and be willing to accept when you're wrong.
How is that question even relevant?
lol a year ago I would have thought you were a dick for saying that. Now my resentment probably exceeds yours as an American myself. Dumb people.
The same thing happened to Capcom last year. Was that also a publicity stunt? Lmao
""And in the company’s latest earnings report, it saw a 32.2-percent increase in operating income year-over-year, marking “the highest profit at all levels for the end of a third-quarter in company history.”" Capcom did have a record quarter/year, not agreeing but maybe not the best counter example. https://dotesports.com/busi...
"Unreleased version of Witcher 3" 👀
That’s obviously the original e3 demo version that the shitty hardware of the Xbox one an PS4 couldn’t handle so they had to scrap it an rebuild.
Or maybe the work-in-progress "next-gen" version they announced for PS5 & XSX, due for release this year?
New gen version I reckon. Also includes an upgrade for PC as well as Series X/PS5.
The question on everybody's mind: will this potentialy lead to full insight what they knew prior to release? (Yes, obviously the hack is wrong.)
Seems like it since attackers said they are leaking source code and documents that will make CD Projekt look more evil or something..
Yowza. We all hear of that happening but rarely see it.
That info was bound to get out there anyway. I'm actually genuinely surprised it hasn't already. Playing CP2077 is a bit like walking into a house with blood all over the walls -- it's very obvious that something badw was happening in CDPR, likely on a management level.
The game was pretty broken but even they don’t deserve this.
Yes they do. They lied to consumers "The game plays great on base PS5/Xbox One", which is exactly what they said. We all know the end product. They deserve this and more
you have got issues.
Just a game bro. Doesn't have to be like this over a videogame
You sir have a lot of growing up to do. They're hardly going to say don't buy this game on consoles, it's below par are they. Every game company has released a dud once in a while. They don't deserve for their personal info to be breached because of it.
And what do you deserve sir?
It does play great on PS5 though. I'm playing through at the moment and loving it.
Get a refund. Stop pre-ordering. They’re also getting sued. No, they don’t deserve to get hacked.
They are scammers.
@ufo 100% agree. These sorry saps that are siding with cd are exactly the type of gamers businesses are cultivating. Oh poor company that lied to everyone 😢.
There are far worse game companies out there. EA and other sport game publisher are literally selling you the same game over and over with Microtransactions. You literally have to gamble your money to win in a game that you paid for. I personally don't like what they did to Cyberpunk2077 and probably not going to buy that game in a foreseeable future. But that doesn't mean they deserve this at all. They have released good games like Witcher series in past. One mistake don't define the entire dev team.
If this exposes more lies then I'm all for this. This goes for ANY company. Normally I do not condone hacking, but if the reason for the hack is to expose a company that has been lying to consumers/anti-consumer practises, GO FOR IT.
Hm, yeah but it's hard to play the morally righteous card when you're demanding a ransom.
If this was true then the so called hacker's would have released it already. This seems like another CDPR con job, I feel like we are being scammed again.
Jack, if this was a con job, they wouldn't get the authorities involved. They would be shooting themselves in the foot.
End justifies the means huh? Not really good way to live your life...
There is clear proof of mismanagement but there is yet to be any proof of intentional deception. Otherwise refunds wouldn't have been offered how they were, they wouldn't be offering free next gen upgrades, free dlc similar to the witcher in scope, they also wouldn't have priced their game at 60$ and would have gone the famous anti consumer route of $70, etc. They are one of the most pro consumer devs.
Bro, Chill out, we get it you mad that the game dev didnt give you the game of your dreams. Now go outside take a deep breath and repeat "Life is worth it and I will get past this" until you feel better.
Now this actions IS something that CDPR’s mainstream normie azz will never be...Cyberpunk. CDPR can afford this fall from grace. Maybe after they scrape their face off the pavement they can start combing the dregs for peeps that hold their same moral/ethical standards. Way to stand out guys and oh boy does it. $$$ ambitions and direction run amok. As long as the treats remain limited to exposing wrongdoing, lies or scandal. Put some well deserved cyber-squeeze on ‘em.
Hopefully this won't be used as an excuse to not fix their game...
I can't believe that almost every reply tweet is making fun of them and joking about it. Pathetic. I hope they catch the culprit and punish them to the full extent of the law.
i mean these people are criminals plain and simple. they stole something and now demand a ransom. i would even go as far as to call this cyber terrorism. if you support and/or condone this then you need to take a hard look at yourself in the mirror and think what you are supporting here.

Don't understand why people are complaining about Cyberpunk... since most console gamers claim to have gaming PC's. Ask for a refund from the console version, and, get the PC version.
Wt a shame. Will never understand the gamers obsessive rationale to the point of breaking laws over a game. It's really not that serious and if it is for you then I would suggest re-evaluating your life choices. Everything down to the ransom note screams angry teen or man-child.
This is wrong. Anyone who thinks this is okay has an insane, warped sense of entitlement.
That's to bad.

I've read a lot of these comments bashing CDPR for CP2077 and it amazes me bc most of these same people had their mouths full of CDPR's cock before launch. Did they mislead, yea, did they give you an opportunity to get your money back if the game was unplayable for you, yea. Yet most of you people continue to bash them. Forgive but don't forget. Give them the opportunity to make things right with this game and future games. What's funny is some of you are saying they deserve this but I'd venture to say if you were in their shoes you would want a shot at redemption. It seems that some/most have never lied or fucked anything up. Ever heard the saying "some times the hardest lessons are the most important to learn." My guess is they (from CEO to dev team) wont try this shit again.
Hopefully we get a Dedsec level of incrimination XD
Maybe the hackers can do a better job at fixing Cyberpunk
Now they have the source code, can it be fixed. The game is awful. NPC'S are awful buggy mess, Theres fire under the water. no water splashes, There's no realism at all with the physics. The game needed another 9 years.
thats really awful, they didnt deserve that at all.
These poor guys. I’ll always remember this whole debacle started, by in large, because impatient gamers started with the death threats. Imagine threatening to kill a painter because they haven’t quite filled up their canvas yet. Now they’re getting kicked while they’re down. Maybe these impatient gamers will get their just dessert when CD Project Red folds.
Ugh they don't deserve this shit.
Looks like someone got to level 20 Intelligence in Cyberpunk.
Cyberpunk hacked by... Cyberpunks?
Deserved. They want to lie and take peoples hard earned money and deliver a broken product, well, suffer.
Anyone who has pity for CDR is a fool. Plain and simple.
