Crytek has admitted that some user information may have been compromised during the attack on its websites over the weekend.

Four of the developer’s websites, Crytek.com, Mycryengine.com, Crydev.net, and MyCrysis.com, were all taken offline after it became aware of suspicious activity. According to a statement sent to Polygon by a Crytek representative, the sites “were all subject to a security breach that may have resulted in some users’ login data being compromised.”

“Although it is uncertain whether the incident led to the copying and decryption of email addresses and passwords, it is possible that users with accounts at these websites have had personal data copied,” the rep added. “On Friday afternoon we started to contact all affected users via email and informed them of the potential security breach.”
