In February, CD Projekt Red announced that it had been subject to a ransomware attack, which compromised some of its internal systems. Initially, the company stated that:
...we can confirm that - to our best knowledge - the compromised systems did not contain any personal data of our players or users of our services.
However, CD Projekt now warns that the stolen data could include details about current and former employees, contractors, and games. It also claims that people are sharing this information online. While it has not disclosed what game-related data the hackers stole, Pre Alpha gameplay from Cyberpunk 2077 leaked last week.
For posterity, we have included the gameplay video below, which differs drastically from the final game. CD Projekt Red insists that it is working with multiple entities, including Europol and Interpol, to aid in finding the hackers. The company stresses that it cannot determine if the leaked data has been tampered with or manipulated.
