The Witcher 3 Next-Gen & Cyberpunk 2077 source codes are now on torrent sites

DSOGaming writes: "In February, CDPR revealed that it was a victim of a targeted cyberattack. As we reported back then, a hacker group was able to obtain the source codes for The Witcher 3, The Witcher 3 Next-Gen, Cyberpunk 2077 and Gwent. And, from the looks of it, the source codes for The Witcher 3 Next-Gen and Cyberpunk 2077 are already on torrent sites."

This is going to hurt CD Project Red, because if their engine source code is out in the wild anyone can make a game with the source code or use it to experiment to be able to make their own rival engine.

I'd advise everyone to stay away from it, because if people that are using stolen code think it would be fun to take a look under the hood, to possibly make their own game or even try to fix the glitches in Cyberpunk 2077, don't the reason why there is a great chance of going to prison for doing that.

Plus even if you'd never be caught, it is wrong. So if I can leave people with any wise words, don't be dumb and stay away.

While I totally agree and that’s a shitty thing to do

It was also wrong of CD Projekt Red to make a buggy game with less content that was marketed and then releasing it, swindling gamers out of money

They are both in the wrong

Just because one person did a wrong that doesn't mean you should do one as well. That's a bad way of thinking.

I don't know why this comment needs to be made. You're essentially just throwing something having nothing to do with the submission into the mix just to remind people of something you want to keep mentioning. It's not like we aren't well aware of what CDPR has done.

"He's a murderer, but don't forget the lawyer prosecuting him got caught drunk driving."

Just a useless comment.

Well were talking about a subpar game vs. stealing. A kid doesn't study and fails a class, should the teacher steal his belongings?

SenorFartCushion107d ago

This is like a Tony Blair comment 😂😂

-Foxtrot107d ago

You know some of you guys comments above...I really hope this happens to EA and see if you post the same type of comments because you won’t, none of you will give a shit

Like I said I don’t agree and it sucks but after the way they went on and what they did. It just makes both look bad.

Popsicle107d ago (Edited 107d ago )

Be clear on this. Are you suggesting to wrongs make a right and that CDPR deserves this? Lastly, as much as I dislike EA I would never wish this on them. Stealing some else's work is wrong. I don't like EA's business practices so I do not purchase their products, but just because I do not like what they do it does not give me the right to steal from them.

enkiduxiv107d ago

I don't really think these two issues are related. The executives may deserve some hardship, but its the low level devs that work 100 hour work weeks that stand to lose the most from this. Honestly, I don't think we should go the extreme of wishing ill will on a developer for screwing up one launch. Everyone has done that at some point. Let's save that kind of negativity for EA.

Wow you comment is just full of it.

anast106d ago

There's a ton of self-righteous BS. Every one thinks they are one of the apostles or something. I know that Jesus game is about to release.

Yes, it was dumb for CDPR to try to steal through misrepresentation and it is equally inane to steal from CDPR. But FFS, these formal logic comparisons are painful. Any way it would be attempting with intent vs stealing.

Didn’t some idiot pay millions for these? Lol

TRY PUTTING THIS EFFORT INTO COMPANIES OBSESSED WITH MICROTRANSACTIONS FIRST, PEOPLE.

It needs to be said. CDPR launched a broken game and the management crunched the teams. They deserve their comeuppance, but it does feel like a lot of gamers are uneducated regarding the bigger issues. Massive companies are stripping experiences for parts and charging for them. That’s bad. Worse than a botched game launch.

Popsicle107d ago (Edited 107d ago )

This is so true. It is obvious that CDPR should not have released this buggy mess, but at least they have been trying to rectify the situation by offering refunds. The paywalls, micro-transactions, and addictive monetization loops utilized by companies like Take Two and EA are what really hurt the overall experience for gamers. One buggy game is bad, but the anti-consumer practices by the companies I previously mentioned are much worse for the consumer on a macro scale.

Edit: To be clear, even though these companies thrive on anti-consumer practices, they do not deserve to be stolen from. The best solution is to just stop buying their games.

This is looking more and more like a hit job engineered by the American corporate mafia. It ties in with the hate campaign against Biomutant.

RosweeSon107d ago

Cannot agree more. At least they were trying something epic original and not yearly churned people wanted it rushed out and didn’t like it when it launched in broken state. I knew it was gonna need some patches just not as many and didn’t think it would be as bad as it was but at least they haven’t abandoned it like most yearly churn devs would have they’d have got it to a barely playable state and be rushing out next years version of assassins creed with 4/5 different versions a unique bit of dlc for each normally parts of the main games, charges for extra modes this used to be free unlocka
Half the team still working on fixing cyberpunk so credit to that, as for others suggesting oh the game was broke so sort of deserve it nah. Doesn’t work like that, sure deserve to be held accountable for releasing broken games and they’ll learn from it but doesn’t mean just go round and help yourself to their stuff ridiculous.
Ubisoft launched an assassins creed you couldn’t even load the game without a day1 online update. That should be boarding on illegal I appreciate they need updates certainly for online components etc but can’t even start the game without their patches, what for those not online who went and bought from a shop. EA, Ubisoft Activision deserve all this serious jumping on their back (not threats etc just a bit of accountability) but they swerve time and time again
Nintendo go bang something that wasn’t even j the original game so it’s an optional make things easier option (for noobs) and it was an utter 💩 storm all those timeless classics they generally release forgotten for an odd choice her and (they’ve done similar couple times) but don’t think it’ll become regular they see the storms it kicks off but literally there’s company’s that this every single year multiple times a year and it’s just 🤷🏻‍♂️😑 🤦🏻‍♂️ Madness.

People are just completely unreasonable.

curtain_swoosh107d ago

no matter how someone screwed up a game, this is pretty scummy.
especially if theres money involved too.

BlaqMagiq1107d ago

Just because someone released a subpar, broken product does not entitle you to steal their work. This is shitty and the people responsible need to be held accountable and taken to court.

RosweeSon107d ago

Unfortunately people have twisted logic like this all the time. It’s like when they do something wrong then when pulled up on it they deflect and throw 💩 at you. How is it on me 🧐😑🤣 jog on 🤣✌🏻
