LONDON — CD Projekt, the developer of troubled sci-fi video game Cyberpunk 2077, said Tuesday it's been hit with a cyberattack.

The Polish studio said hackers accessed its internal network, encrypted its servers and left a ransom note threatening to release the source code of its games.

"Although some devices in our network have been encrypted, our backups remain intact," CD Projekt said on Twitter. "We have already secured our IT infrastructure and begun restoring the data."

"We will not give in to the demands nor negotiate with the actor, being aware that this may eventually lead to the release of the compromised data," the firm added.

"We are taking necessary steps to mitigate the consequences of such a release, in particular by approaching any parties that may be affected due to the breach."
