Hacker Group May Have Been Behind Disrupted Gaming Over The Weekend.
Hackers use what is known as a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS). Which works by bombarding a system with a huge number of requests which cause the Servers to crash.
Although the group have not officially claimed responsibility, its Twitter account had stated " We're predicting a lot of mad gamers this weekend".
Bungie had issued a statement via their Twitter page after The North American Servers for both games had become increasingly affected.
