Crytek fans around the world are facing yet another security drama, as the developer takes several of its websites offline following a bout of “suspicious activity” late last week.

We recently became aware of suspicious activity relating to some of Crytek’s websites, and acted quickly to take those websites offline for security reasons

Sites affected include Mycryengine.com, Crydev.net, MyCrysis.com and flagship Crytek.com.

The Crysis 3 developer is currently working on getting all websites fully operational again “as soon as possible”, but has not offered a timeframe as yet. Similarly, Crytek has not revealed any further details regarding what user information may have been accessed, or the nature of this “suspicious activity”.

If you have an account on those websites, you will be asked to change your password when you next log in. If you use the same password anywhere else online, Crytek suggests you change it there as well.

Please note: Several Crytek websites remain unaffected, including GFACE.com, Crysis.com and Warface.com.
