Capcom's forthcoming Resident Evil: Village continues the zombie apocalypse series

Video game-maker Capcom said its computer systems were hacked earlier this week, in the latest cyber-attack to hit the games industry.

The Japanese firm is behind major franchises such as Resident Evil, Street Fighter, and Mega Man.

It said some of its internal networks had been suspended “due to unauthorised access” from outside Capcom.

But it said “at present”, there was no sign that customer information had been accessed.

It noticed the attack after its internal networks began to have issues that affected company email and the servers where it stores its files, a statement said.

“Capcom expressed its deepest regret for any inconvenience this may cause to its various stakeholders,” it said.

Online gameplay and websites did not seem to be affected, and in investigation is under way. Capcom did not say what had been accessed, or if any material had been stolen.

It is the latest in a series of recent high-profile leaks and hacks of companies in the industry.

Earlier this week, reports suggested that Ubisoft’s game about hacking, Watch Dogs: Legion, may have been hacked, with its source code stolen and reportedly leaked online.

Ubisoft, however, has not confirmed the reports, saying only: “We are aware of the group’s claim and are currently investigating a potential data security incident.”

The same hacker group also claims to have accessed the developer Crytek’s internal information.
