Ubisoft’s uPlay has been breached by Russian hackers which provided them with free access to games on the distribution service – including the unreleased Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.

According to the report on Eurogamer, the hack made uPlay “think” the users already owned certain games, and made it available to download for free.

This is apparently where the leaked footage of the game came from.

Gameranx reports that the game is already up on torrent sites.

Everything is, really, so this is no surprise.

Ubisoft has since said it is “aware of the issue and are working to resolve it quickly.”

No personal information was compromised, and the PC service has been taken offline “until the problem is fixed, however all other Uplay services remain available.”

Still, it would be wise to change your password anyway.
