Activision Denies Reports Of CoD Leaks, "No Sensitive Data" Was Obtained




Activision is denying reports that leakers have acquired sensitive data regarding Games and employees. This comes as sources claimed to have accessed Call of Duty's 2023 roadmap, as well as personal information on Activision employees.

In the statement, Activision admits that there was a data breach in December of last year, but is adamant that "no sensitive employee data, Game code, or player data was accessed." This is despite sources saying that they have access to this, including the full names and contact information of workers.

Activision provided this statement to Insider Gaming, who initially reported the breach yesterday.


"The security of our data is paramount, and we have comprehensive information security protocols in place to ensure its confidentiality," says an Activision spokesperson. "On December 4, 2022, our information security team swiftly addressed an SMS phishing attempt and quickly resolved it."

The statement continues, rejecting reports that leakers currently have access to Call of Duty and employee data. "Following a thorough investigation, we determined that no sensitive employee data, Game code, or player data was accessed."

The Twitter account purporting to have information regarding Call of Duty has shared details regarding apparent 2023 updates. It remains to be seen if any of these come to fruition, but Activision seems to remain adamant that the details are not legitimate. Of course, since they would have been acquired in December, it's possible that they would be out of date even if they were real in the first place. As we've seen before, even smaller updates for live services can be pushed back, and roadmaps can be scrapped altogether.

In any case, both the initial reports and Activision's statement agree that player data was not included in the data breach, so Call of Duty players shouldn't have to worry about any passwords or payment information tied to these accounts. Hopefully, the same can be said for Activision workers, although so far their personal information has not been shared publicly, even if the leakers have it.
