Minecraft Sells 500K Copies, Now Has 1.6 Million Users

Updated: 12:47PM PST: In a tweet, LulzSec has promised to "lay off" Minecraft while preparing for a new target. Another tweet, posted a few minutes later,names that target as League of Legend's login servers.

Minecraft, EVE Online and the Escapist Magazine servers were targeted by hacker group Lulz Security as part of their #TitanicTakeoverTuesday, the group announced via their Twitter account.

While we've been able to play Minecraft single-player in browser, the multiplayer servers cannot be accessed. This was done purposefully, the hacker group claims. No official announcements from anyone on the Minecraft teams.

EVE Online is meanwhile completely down, having shut the network off themselves to investigate the attack which LulzSec is claiming responsibility for. The CCP Games' massively multiplayer space sim announced their breach via Twitter and Facebook.

The Escapist's website likewise cannot be accessed at all, though they're mum on why. No updates on their social media sites.
