One of the world's largest gaming companies has been hacked, and unreleased game features might become public as a result.
Riot Games posted a story today regarding a social engineering incident that exposed the source code of several of its most popular games. The source code, which acts as the foundation for League of Legends, TFT, and an anti-cheat, was compromised.
Riot said it is "confident" that player data and personal information were not obtained as a result of the intrusion, but it isn't that confident in game features.
Riot stated that any features that were previously offered to the public via the attack would not be released.
Riot said in a statement that the illegally obtained source code includes a number of experimental features. While some of these game modes and other changes would be available to players, most of this content is still in prototype and there is no assurance that it will ever be released.
While the League community is anticipating future game modes for the Rift, players may have to wait longer as a result of the illegal intrusion.
The intrusion is likely to not disrupt the release of the League's next two-vs-two-vs-two-vs-two deathmatch game mode, which will be released later this year.
When it came to the attack, Riot did not include the title VALORANT, its first-person shooter.
