The Witcher 3 developers CD Projekt RED have had their forums hacked, with almost two-million users' details stolen.

For a break from this world, head to our list of the best space games. Nobody can hack you in space. 

According to the data breach notification site ‘Have I Been Pwned’, the breach happened back in March 2016, with usernames, passwords and email addresses were compromised. 

The data breach site notified those affected this morning, when the data was made available. 

"Whilst the breach occurred in March 2016, sometimes there can be a lengthy lead time of months or even years before the data is disclosed publicly," says email seen by IT Pro

"Have I Been Pwned? will always attempt to alert you ASAP, it's just a question of how readily available the data is."

If you ever had an account of the official CD Projekt RED forums, now would be a good time to change your passwords on everything, just in case.
