The lights are on
It's unclear exactly what has caused Crytek's family of websites to go offline, but it appears that some kind of security breach has occurred.
Currently, Crydev.net, Crytek.com, Mycryengine.com, and MyCrysis.com are all displaying the message seen above. GFACE.com, Crysis.com, and Warface.com are apparently unaffected and continue to remain active online.
Blue's News is reporting that users will be sent notices alerting them to change their passwords shortly. It's unclear when these websites will go back online.

Our TakeUnfortunately, it seems like these stories are appearing more and more. Stories of users' private information being used in inappropriate ways as a result of these incidents, however, we hear nothing about. Is it just that it is not getting reported on? Or are these hackers content with having private information and doing nothing with it?
Email the author Kyle Hilliard, or follow on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, and Game Informer.
Everything is being hacked lately. Damn all you hackers to Hell!!!
Bummer. Bet it's Aiden and the Watchdogs' work.
Not again. Why cant they just settle for leaving joke status updates on their friends' logged in Facebook accounts?
Another hack! This time i do not have an account with crytek. Wait did they make crysis 3? Oh sh... Gotta change another password. Can someone please tell the hackers to stop following me, I have little money.
DON DON DA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
that's not good whats going on with all these hacks???
I feel like its only a matter of time before a huge gaming site with a substantial amount of private info gets hacked... This is troubling...
HomeFront 2 lol.
People like that just have waaay to much time on their hands
I just think more and more companies need to invest in better security. I know its probably impossible to prevent hacking completely but they need to try!
So I am assuming this isn't just a trick for a new game??? Maybe Blue's News is in on it . "oh your will get an email" **Later this week**
"HAHAHA NEW GAME MOTHERF***ERS!"
A man can dream. I like games.
