2K Games confirms they were hacked, tells customers to change passwords

2K Games

Not long after a massive breach and leak for Grand Theft Auto VI, Rockstar parent company 2K Games has confirmed they’ve been hacked, too.

2K confirmed they “became aware that an unauthorized third party illegally accessed the credentials of one of our vendors to the help desk platform that 2K uses to provide support to our customers.”

The company added that the scammer “sent a communication to certain players containing a malicious link” and that naturally you should not “open any emails or click on any links that you receive from the 2K Games support account.”

2K said any players that clicked those scam links should immediately reset their passwords stored in their web browsers and that 2K, like other official vendors, will never ask for your password or personal information.

Due to the severity of the issue, their support portal will stay offline until it is fully addressed. 2K’s support system has been used for various NBA and WWE games, as well as other non-sports titles like the Borderlands series.

2K and Rockstar’s other breach saw tons of early gameplay footage for Grand Theft Auto VI leaked, which Rockstar then confirmed is legit – and illegal.
