According to MCV the game servers for Hammerpoint Interactive's The War Z game have been the target of a DDoS attack over the last couple of days. Earlier this week Hammerpoint's Sergey Titov apologized to the community for his comments about fans complaining about the game's lack of promised features, but apparently individuals upset over the online-focused zombie apocalypse game are still angry. In a post on the official forum for the game, the developers of The War Z explained why owners of the game might be having trouble connecting with game servers.
"Guys over the last few days we have been under attack by various forums of malicious attempts to shut down our servers," the studio said on its forums. "First we were hit with an attack that would rest our DNS IP so that you could not connect. This was solved a couple days ago early in the morning but took time to actually resolve worldwide once the fix went in."
"This morning we are being hit, again, with a DDoS attack on our login server," the post continued. "We are implementing additional DDoS protection and hope to have this resolved asap. Unfortunately with these types of attacks it is very difficult to give a good time frame of when it will be resolved."
We will have more on this situation as it develops.
