Massive Witcher 3 Leak **SPOILERS**

There has been a huge leak of Witcher 3 details, thanks to files that were reportedly stolen from a CD Projekt Red employee whose Google Drive was hacked into, then posted to 4chan and Reddit.

CD Projekt Red has confirmed the leak to Eurogamer and advised fans against accessing the files due to their spoilerish content.  The official statement is below:

“It has come to our attention that some of the production files for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt have emerged on the internet,” CD Projekt Reds 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.”

I will post the spoiler details that I was able to find below the “read more” line:

First off, let’s start with the map of one of the areas that was revealed.  It’s 64 kilometres squared.  This area is not the only area you will be traversing in the game.

The leaked design document apparently reads, “After establishing the regions of Ard Skellig, we had a startup layout to begin scattering points of interest that make consistent sense and serve as gameplay and/or navigation spots.

“The density allows for a constant nav. assistance for the player while leaving enough room for “extracurricular activities”. The POI [point of interest] grid also takes the “offshore section” into consideration by populating the sea around the eastern-mountains with POIs.”

The map can be seen below:
