The film co-stars Gordon Lam, Simon Yam and Megan Lai.

Principal photography for Cyber Heist began on 12 June 2020 in Ho Man Tin.

A high tech office set for the film costed HK$2 million to build. Production for Cyber Heist officially wrapped up on 14 October 2020 after filming its final scene in a forest in Nam Sang Wai.

Cyber Heist was theatrically released on 9 March 2023 in Hong Kong. Edko Films has picked up the worldwide distribution rights for the film.
