The hacker group also threatens to release the documents to their “contacts in gaming journalism.” In the same ransom note, the hackers reveal that they have obtained the full source codes for all of CDPR’s projects like Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3, including the upcoming next-gen versions of the games.
