Cyberpunk 2077 source code sold at auction

CD Projekt RED behind the theft of the source code of the games sold the archive with the data. This is reported by The Verge with reference to social media users.

The publication refers to a Twitter blogger under the nickname Intel_by_KELA, who followed the auction for the sale of likely archives with stolen data from CD Projekt RED. The author posted a screenshot from the auction forum from the creator of the lot, which stated that the archive was no longer available for sale.

“We received a proposal outside the forum, which satisfied us,” said the initiator of the auction. The author clarified that the lot was withdrawn from sale due to the risk of further dissemination of data. At the same time, it is not known for sure whether the owner of the archive with the codes of Cyberpunk 2077 and other games received a cash payment for the sale of information or withdrew the offer for other reasons.

Journalists suggested that the hackers could have received a lucrative offer, but it is not known what eventually happened to the data archive. Before the start of the auction, unknown persons offered CD Projekt RED to return the stolen data for a ransom.

Earlier, the alleged archive with data from the Polish studio was found at one of the online auctions. Anonymous organizers offered to start bidding with one million dollars or sell the archive at once for seven million dollars.

On February 9, it became known about the hacking of CD Projekt RED servers and theft of studio data. Apparently, anonymous hackers stole the source code of Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher 3, Gwent, as well as the code of the unreleased version of The Witcher 3. Representatives of CD Projekt RED said they would not contact the criminals and turned to law enforcement agencies.
