Phantasy Star Online 2 has been hacked, and Sega is investigating.
Free-to-play online game Phantasy Star Online 2 was hacked, with non-player characters moved out of reach on high structures and behind glass, making it impossible for users to interact with necessary NPCs.
While Sega today announced it was investigating the apparent hack, the publisher confirmed no player data was compromised.
Japanese websites are reportedly placing blame on English-speaking players upset at the lack of global servers in the game, Kotaku reports. Players who find cheaters in the game are asked to report them through the wicked user form.
Phantasy Star Online 2 is currently available in Japan for PC, with versions for iOS and Android devices later in the year. A version is expected on the PlayStation Vita next year, while a downloadable PC version will also release in North America and Europe in 2013.
