Witcher 3 Design Documents Stolen, Leaked on Reddit

June 23, 2014 - GamePolitics Staff

CD Projekt Red has issued a warning concerning the leak of sensitive internal development documents for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt that the developer says will ruin the plot for anyone foolhardy enough to look at them prior to the game's release. The developer says that the leaked documents expose key information, including the ending to the game. The documents appeared on 4Chan and Reddit over the weekend.

"It has come to our attention that some of the production files for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt have emerged on the internet," a representative for the Warsaw-based studio told Eurogamer. "A portion of the files contains information about the story of the game so we strongly advise against accessing them, as this may heavily impact and spoil your future gaming experience."

The cache of stolen internal design documents were taken from one of the developer's Google Drive account by an unknown hacker.

"We also like to reassure everyone that the disclosure of said documents does not affect the development cycle in any way," the company added.

The documents include outline details of the game's ending, character details, production art, and animations. One document is a synopsis of the game's E3 2014 demo which highlights "Boob physics eye candy."

Another details how the game is in beta and can be "played without progression blocking issues on PC, XBONE and PS4 although performance is expected to be worse on consoles."

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is set for release in February 2015.
