The source code for the Cyberpunk 2077 has reportedly been sold at auction

Already yesterday, we learned that hackers really have sensitive CD Projekt data in hand, as they released the source code and assets (graphics, models, skins and other game data) of the Gwent title. Altogether, it was several tens of gigabytes of data, and Gwent was, as a rather less popular card game based on the Wizard’s world, a logical choice to show teeth.

But Cyberpunk 2077 is a slightly different league, and hackers have, of course, kept it for their own enrichment. CD Projekt first received an invitation to negotiate a ransom, but he didn’t care about anything like that. In other words, what was to be expected came and the source codes of Cyberpunk 2077 and probably also game assets were offered in the auction and, as we learn, they were probably already auctioned, according to The Verge server, for an unspecified amount.

It was only announced that the amount paid (probably in Bitcoins) was satisfactory and according to the company Kela dealing with cybersecurity started the auction at (in terms of) per million dollars and the price of “buy now” was seven million.

Due to the anonymity of Bitcoin, it is difficult to know who and for how much he bought the relevant data, unless it came to the surface later in a different way. One can only guess what someone will be able to use it for. In addition, it is not even certain what was sold at the auction, but it is possible that it was everything that hackers acquired and have not yet published, that is, in addition to the Cyberpunk 077 mentioned, also Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, The Witcher 3 plus its RTX versions, copies of internal documents and also REDengine.

The CD Projekt itself has not yet commented on this development.
