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

The announcement comes after multiple Ubisoft users had reported issues last week accessing their Ubisoft service.

Data extortion group LAPSUS$, who has claimed responsibility for hacking Samsung, NVIDIA, and Mercado Libre thus far, appears to be behind this incident.

Ubisoft initiates 'company-wide password reset'

Video game production giant Ubisoft states it experienced a cyber security incident sometime last week.

"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."

Headquartered in Montreuil with its studios around the world, the game maker has repeatedly produced hit titles including Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, For Honor, Just Dance, Prince of Persia, Rabbids, Rayman, Tom Clancy's, and Watch Dogs.

On March 4th, users on Twitter and Downdetector did report issues accessing some of the Ubisoft services, that appear to be linked to this incident:
