Activision has denied reports suggesting hundreds of thousands of Call of Duty accounts have been compromised.
Reports of accounts being hacked have spread online this week, with some suggesting over 500,000 had been breached, a claim Activision attempted to shoot down in a statement on Twitter.
“Reports suggesting Activision Call of Duty accounts have been compromised are not accurate,” the publisher said. “We investigate all privacy concerns.
“As always we recommend that players take precaution to protect their Activision accounts, as well as any online accounts, at all times.
“You will receive emails when major changes are made to your Call of Duty accounts. If you did not make these changes, please be sure to follow the steps provided.”
Activision accounts are required to sign in to Call of Duty games like Modern Warfare and Warzone. It had been claimed that hackers were illegally accessing accounts and changing the log in details so the original owners could no longer access them.
Activision unveiled Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s multiplayer mode earlier this month before holding a PS4 exclusive alpha test last weekend.
It will launch a Black Ops Cold War beta on October 8. PS4 pre-order customers will get first access, followed by general PS4 players on October 10, then other pre-order customers on October 15, ahead of general access on October 17.
