A team of Russian hackers has managed to break Uplay’s security, giving themselves free access to all Ubisoft’s available for purchase through the online store.
More interestingly, the team also managed to swipe a copy of the yet-unreleased and yet-announced Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a standalone retro-style Far Cry 3 sequel that takes place in the near future. Rumors about the game’s existence have been circulating for a while now, but Ubisoft didn’t make any announcement except setting up a weird 80’s styled website.
The hackers posted a 30 minutes gameplay footage on YouTube, but Ubisfot had it taken down promptly. Nonetheless, the game has already made its way to Bit Torrent and other p2p networks. (The game is 2.95 GB in size, in case you are curious for no apparent reason)
Ubisoft acknowledged the hack, asserted that no personal information was compromised by it, and suspended Uplay's PC download service while a fix is implemented. All other Uplay services remain available."
