    It looks like Polish developer CD Projekt Red just can’t seem to catch a break. The company, which has still been reeling from the messy launch of Cyberpunk 2077, has now revealed that they’ve become a victim of cyberattacks.

    The company revealed that its internal systems have been compromised due to a cyber attack that occurred yesterday. Regarding the hack, CD Projekt revealed the following:

    “An unidentified actor gained unauthorized access to our internal network, collected certain data belonging to CD PROJEKT capital group, and left a ransom note…”

    CDPR has also published the ransom note on public platforms, which shows that the hackers gained access to information from various departments within the company including accounting, HR & investor relations.
