Hackers are so noble, trying to put everyone at CDPR out of a job. True heros /s.

Im curious who their “game journalists” contacts are. Would love to never support them.

It’s ironic to me that they got hacked… Been playing cyberpunk too much maybe

That ransom note is written like someone trying to sound like a 90’s-cool-spiked-hair-fast-shades-hacker would

Terminology is wrong here. You don’t leak the source code for Cyberpunk, you drain it.

Because it’s spaghetti.

I say Projekt Red calls their bluff / threat.

Those that like the games have likely already paid for them and enjoy supporting the company, and those who would pirate the game weren’t planning to spend the money for them anyway.

Stupid question: I can still play the Witcher 3, right?

They have the full source to CP2077? Maybe they can fix some bugs while they’re in there…

I’m confused what they gain to publicize this?

If they have backups and can recover.. what’s the point in getting media attention on how you failed to protect yourself from a ransomware attack..

All the content he stole probably glitches so bad it’s unusable anyway

Can’t they just find that source code and just have whatever websites take them down lol? I mean if movie websites and torrents can be taken down, surely this kind of thing could follow that same route, right?
