French video game company Ubisoft on Friday confirmed it was a victim of a “cyber security incident,” causing temporary disruptions to its games, systems, and services.
The Montreuil-headquartered firm said that an investigation into the breach was underway and that it has initiated a company-wide password reset as a precautionary measure.
“Also, we can confirm that all our games and services are functioning normally and that at this time there is no evidence any player personal information was accessed or exposed as a by-product of this incident,” the company said in a statement.
The news of the hack comes amid a string of high-profile attacks targeting NVIDIA, Samsung, Mercado Libre, and Vodafone in recent weeks. While the extortionist gang LAPSUS$ claimed responsibility for these attacks, it’s not immediately clear if the group is behind the Ubisoft breach as well.
