Personal data of players Fallout 76 leaked

The personal details of people who play Fallout 76 have been leaked by a software error.


The personal details of people who play Fallout 76 have been leaked by a software error.

That acknowledges publisher Bethesda in a message on Twitter.

"Due to an error on our customer service website, customers could accidentally see someone else's tickets," the company writes. The tickets contained complaints and questions that players had submitted to Bethesda.

The tickets also contained personal details of players, including user names, contact details and purchase receipts.

It is not known how much data was clear. Bethesda says that only a "limited number of customers" had access to the data. A spokesperson for the company could not immediately tell whether data from Dutch people could be seen.

The data leak follows after several problems around the game. Recently Bethesda still suspended players who actively hunted homosexual players. In addition, the company is under fire because an expensive, limited edition did not contain the bag promised to buyers.
