In an announcement yesterday, CD Projekt Red, the Polish developer behind GOG.com and The Witcher trilogy, said that they had been contacted by hackers demanding ransom.

The hackers had stolen files pertaining to Cyberpunk 2077, their eagerly awaited (obviously) cyberpunk role-playing game.

In no uncertain terms, CD Projekt said no.

Cyberpunk 2077 is based off of Cyberpunk 2020, a role-playing game released in 1988. Set in an open-world city, the game will have players utilize implants to advance their character’s skill set as they progress through the single-player story. A multiplayer mode will also be released.

It is a 3D, single and multiplayer experience helmed by a team larger than the one behind last year’s The Witcher 3, widely considered to be one of the best RPG games ever made.

The game is reportedly being released in 2019, though no date has been confirmed.

Watch the amazing cinematic trailer, released four years ago, here. Viewers are warned the trailer contains blood and an instance of human mutilation.
