Ubisoft has confirmed that it suffered a ‘cyber security incident‘ that caused disruption to its games, systems, and services.

Ubisoft is a French video game company headquartered in Montreuil with development studios across the world. Its video game franchises include Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, For Honor, Just Dance, Prince of Persia, Rabbids, Rayman, Tom Clancy’s, and Watch Dogs.

“Last week, Ubisoft experienced a cyber security incident that caused temporary disruption to some of our games, systems, and services,” says the company in a succinct news release.

“Our IT teams are working with leading external experts to investigate the issue. As a precautionary measure, we initiated a company-wide password reset.”

News of Ubisoft confirming the cyber security incident was first reported by The Verge.

Moments later, admins of what is believed to be Lapsus$‘ Telegram group reacted to The Verge’s initial report with a smirk emoji, insinuating that Lapsus$ is behind the hack:
