Crytek Websites Taken Offline After 'Suspicious Activity'

Crysis 3 developer Crytek has temporarily taken some of its websites down as a security measure following supposed "suspicious activity." Apparently, the security breach was discovered earlier yesterday, prompting the German studio to take its sites offline.
Crytek.com, Mycryengine.com, Crydev.net and MyCrysis.com have all seemingly been affected and have been temporarily taken offline. Strangely, Crysis.com has not been taken down and is still running as normal. The aforementioned sites however carry the following message:
"We recently became aware of suspicious activity relating to some of Crytek's websites and acted quickly to take those websites offline for security reasons. We thank you for your patience, and expect to have these sites fully operational soon."
Blue's News reports that users on the affected websites have received emails suggesting that they change their passwords to be on the safe side once the sites return to functioning as normal. No details have been disclosed on what the suspicious activity in question is, but a hack doesn't sound all that far fetched given that Konami, Ubisoft and others have all been past victims of such attacks.
