[UPDATE] "We strongly advise against accessing" the leaked files, CD Projekt Red says.

by

[UPDATE] The Witcher 3 developer CD Projekt Red has responded to the leak, issuing a statement to Eurogamer on the matter.

"It has come to our attention that some of the production files for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt have emerged on the Internet," marketing boss Michal Platkow-Gilewski said. "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."

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

The original story is below.

Several design documents from CD Projekt Red's upcoming open-world game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt have allegedly been leaked online.

Posted on Reddit by user Kromgar in a series of screenshots, the images show concept art from the game, as well as some of the game's bestiary. The various game endings are also reportedly revealed in the design documents.

According to DualShockers, the documents list 64 different monsters and 174 music tracks for the game so far. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will allegedly feature five areas for players to explore.

Following the leak, PS4 Daily has reported that the files were obtained via a developer's Google drive which had been hacked.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is scheduled for release on February 24 next year for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Developer CD Projekt Red has confirmed that it will not be offering platform-exclusive content.

Concerns about spoilers are petty and selfish notions, in my eyes. If there are any leaks on the Internet, you owe to yourself not to look at them if you are so concerned - but complaining that these leaks shouldn't have happened in the first place and that they should not be highlighted?

I am not sure whether those of you who are complaining are aware that you might be making demands that go against the notion of freedom of information on the Internet or not.

Oh yeah? Big f***ing deal. Stuff about GTA V was leaked weeks before it's release. it doesn't f***ing matter. This game is gonna be awesome and I will gladly wait for it rather than read parts of it which might not even make sense (due to incompleteness). So yeah, February, you're my b****. Come to daddy soon! :D

GS, where is the other leak of the day - from developer about how Ubisoft is downgrading PC versions of games so they look similar to console versions?

I haven't seen any leaked files, but why does the Nilfgaardian throne room look like Foltest's throne room from 1? Too much alike.

@day3002 

You have only yourself to blame if you take the bait.

Also, don't shoot the messenger.

@vadagar1  I made that mistake with Game of thrones, I went and read the books, and it KILLED a fantastic show for me.

@hitomo Dude, play Watch Dogs. It will give you the very basic idea about how hacking works and how nothing can be truly protected on the Internet.

@hitomo it's secure enough and if developer wants to do some work at home - it's the best way.

@Saidrex They said they downgraded "The Division" lately. Pathetic lie machine.

@Silithas Same throne room appeared in the first Witcher though, 4 years before GoT premiere.

@kevinvegda It doesn't look like it..it is it. You can notice it quite easily if you played Witcher 1.

@kevinvegda Ahem, you don't need spoilers for that. Just rewatch the TW2 epilogue again and reconsider. ;)

@Saidrex @Geertvdheide Blablabla...I'm also an anonymous developers and I also claim stuff all day long. This is just sensationalist crap without any actual proof of any kind.

@RC-Sev @LordCrash88 If you wouldn't mind, could you link the file(s)? I'm insanely curious, and I figure spoilers don't matter cause there's a 1/36 chance that whatever ending I read will actually happen to me in the play through. 

RC-Sev

@ItsRainingTrees @RC-Sev @LordCrash88 There's actually no 36 endings in the files, just few parts of the ending. And I'm afraid I don't know where to find a link, everyone who could offer it are down now.

Go ahead and flag the other person's post then

I doubt that he/she would be taken action on though - I don't see anything terribly spoilery other than a bunch of numbers which don't even convey any narrative substance.
