According to the officials, the Polish company sent DMCA requests to delete several tweets through a copyright monitoring firm. At least two posts were deleted following a request to Twitter. They contained links to download the Gwent source code.
After deletion, the tweets received the following message: “Description of violation: Illegally obtained source code of Gwent: The Witcher Card Game. Posted without permission, not intended for publication. ” According to one user, the deleted tweet contained a link to a torrent file to download the code. The user noted that he was not surprised that this happened.
On February 9, it became known that CD Projekt RED was subjected to a hacker attack, as a result of which internal documents of the company and source codes of games were stolen. To show that they were serious, the hackers published the source code for Gwent on the Internet.
Later, the media reported that hackers sold the stolen data to CD Projekt RED, including the source code for The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077. The data could be worth several million dollars.
