During CD Projekt’s ordinary general meeting of shareholders held on May 8th, President and Join CEO Adam Kiciński was asked to talk about the security breach that caused the theft of an unspecified number of Cyberpunk 2077 assets, and a subsequent ransom attempt by the unknown thieves.

Kiciński mentioned that the company took action after the event, even if they did not publicly announce these actions. They’re active on the security front to the best of their abilities. They react to every situation and also take proactive measures. Kiciński concluded mentioning that he wouldn’t want to jinx it, but the company is diligent in protecting its data.

Back in June 2017, the developer announced publicly that they would not give in to the thieves’ demands, and so far there seems to have not been any major leak.

Chief Financial Officer Piotr Nielubowicz also confirmed that CD Projekt carried out “intensive” development activities in 2017, spending 77 million PLN (just north of 22 million dollars) in the development of video games and new technology. This represents an increase by more than one-third compared to 2016, with the largest ongoing development project being Cyberpunk 2077.

You can see the full recording below if you want to enjoy a bunch of votes for this or that resolution. At the moment, we still don’t know much about Cyberpunk 2077 besides what the developer mentioned back in March. While there is no official confirmation, there is a widespread belief that we’ll get the first look at the game at E3 2018 next month.
