Just over an hour ago, the EVE Online
login and website servers became unresponsive and went offline. A Twitter user purporting to represent the group responsible for the major PSN outage
earlier this month is claiming credit
for the EVE
server outage. According to the user, the DDOS is part of a series of attacks today that has also shut down the Minecraft
login servers and The Escapist magazine
released an update on Facebook
stating that the issue is currently under investigation. "EVE Online and related services are currently offline and will return as soon as possible following investigation of some issues."
CCP was unable to comment further on the outage but urges players to watch the EVE Facebook
and Twitter feeds
for further updates as they become available.
