I'd really be surprised if there was anyone willing to offer more than a few hundred for it as it's nothing but an oddity. It can't actually be used for anything without getting your ass fucked with lawsuits.
Simply viewing something like that could jeopardize your gamedev career as a programmer. e.g., refer to wine not accepting contributions from anyone who has seen windows source code(leaked or otherwise)

They got Cyberpunked for real.

They attempted to immerse us by playing the corporate lies and greed then a netrunner went in after the outrage and stole all their data.

I was wrong this is TRUE CYBERPUNK!...

Shame has nothing to do with that crappy game and the situation unfortunately for them is very real!

I keep seeing people on reddit etc saying, people will copy parts of the source code.

None of them seem to have any understanding of how hard it would be to actually copy complex sections of engine code into another engine. Let alone that it's likely spaghetti code with polish comments.

Also what does Red Engine do so well that other engines don't?

"Group of hackers invade the servers of evil corporation that lies to the public, with the objective of exposing their lies to the world and as result they are being chased by Interpol."

"Interpol agent, Adam Jensen is in charge of the operation in finding those hacker terrorists. On his investigations however, he gets more and more suspicious of Marcin Iwinski, the owner of CDPR corporation."

"Marcin, tell me the truth, why did you release the game on this way? I saw the source code, that thing was dangerous for anyone that tried to play it. It was pratically gaming terrorism."

"It is them Adam, in the begining I thought I was only doing something good for my company but things grew out of control."

"Them? The illuminati?"

"Some call them that... look, it was never my intention to release the game that way, I wasnt aware of the issues, they forced my hand."

[Professional] Marcin, you are the CEO of this company for almost 20 years and you made three big games already, how can you claim that you werent aware of the issues? There is something you are not telling me Marcin, the stock price of your company is going down by the minute, if you dont tell me the truth, how can I help you?

"You are right...They said I needed to include a social re-education app, the game was to be an experiment to bait underground alt-right groups after they were censored on social media, they would think the game was good and we would use that opportunity to brain wash them into social justice with subliminal mensages, this was Zukerberg idea and Bill Gates gave the approval. If I wanted to grow bigger than Poland, I had to play their game."

"Then why you didnt go accordingly with the plan? The game was a mess and wouldnt work as a bait."

"The game was a mess because I couldnt stand it, I felt it was wrong, so I sabotaged my own game, people wouldnt be engaged by it because it was a mess."

"Why didnt you tell the truth?"

"That isnt how it it works, those people, Adam, they are always in the shadows, working behind lies."

Without the SDK and offline REDKit in particular there's no interest in source code beyond memes, especially without used by these games middleware. As in, the code wouldn't even compile without its dependencies

It's Reddit. What do you expect? The average reddit user doesn't know shit about programming and the average reddit programmer has probably made a religion out of copy & pasting source code, however stupid that may be.

Let alone that it's likely spaghetti code with polish comments.
English comments are more likely. CDPR has been hiring from western Europe, US, and Canada for a while now.

Also what does Red Engine do so well that other engines don't?
Yeah, I'm having a hard time seeing why anyone would want to buy the Red Engine's source code. Everything about CP2077 screams "we have really shitty programmers."
