The source code of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3 have been put up for auction by hackers.
That's according to the malware experts over at Vxunderground – as spotted by Tom's Hardware – which says the source code of Cyberpunk 2077 and both versions of The Witcher 3 – the regular edition and a new unreleased version that supports ray-tracing – are up for auction on a site called EXPLOIT. That's on top of internal documents and.... "CD Projekt RED offenses." Um. Okay then.
The auction opened yesterday (Wednesday, February 10th) at 13:00 Moscow time (10:00 GMT/05:00 EST/02:00 PT) with an opening price of $1 million. Folks can also buy them for a $7 million upfront fee.
Meanwhile, the source code for free-to-play card title Gwent has already been leaked on sites including 4chan and Mega.
It's still not clear who hacked CD Projekt, but whoever is auctioning off source code for the developer's source code on EXPLOIT goes by the name Redengine – a reference to the tech that powers the Polish studio's games.
CD Projekt revealed on Tuesday, February 9th that it had been the victim of a cyber attack and said that whoever was behind it was asking for a ransom. While game data and internal docs – including those relating to accounting, admin, legal, HR and investor relations – the company has said on Twitter that no personal data was stolen as part of this infiltration.
