In a bizarre turn of events, thieves have made off with some early files of Cyberpunk 2077, the upcoming open world RPG by CD Projekt Red of The Witcher series. In a brazen move, the thieves have demanded ransom from the developer. They issued the following statement on Twitter:

In the statement, the developer has refused to pay the ransom, saying, “The documents are old and largely unrepresentative of the current vision for the game. Still, if you’re looking forward to playing Cyberpunk 2077, it would be best to avoid any information not coming directly from CD Projekt Red. When the time is right, you will hear about Cyberpunk 2077 from us – officially.”
We haven’t seen much of the game since it’s announcement but know it’s in extensive development. It would be a shame if our first looks were leaked content that isn’t even relevant or representative of the game, especially under illicit means. The game is scheduled to release sometime in the future for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
