Dead by Deadlight streamers have been dealing with DDoS attacks, and it's causing some problems, including doxxing and, in severe cases, police showing up at their homes on false information.
DBD developer Behaviour Interactive released their statement through Twitter, mentioning that they are now looking into it and conducting their own investigation as well.
"We take these reports extremely seriously. We're actively monitoring the situation internally and with our partners to gather as much information as possible and identify trends.
We are terribly sorry to those who have been affected by these attacks- we understand the impact this has on you. We are taking every appropriate measure to ensure the safety of our players."
Behaviour Responds to Dead By Daylight DDoS Attacks
They also encouraged their players who were attacked or were who experienced any form of "inappropriate or abusive behaviour in the game" to contact Customer Support.
Some streamers and fans from the gaming community criticised the developer because of their late response. Though Behaviour is now involved in trying to resolve the issue, it is still unclear why it was specifically targeted against Dead by Deadlight streamers. One streamer who was both doxxed and had the police show up is Elix, a popular drag queen, and while there's been no official mention whether these incidents are targeted against minorities, Elix said four other targets were also drag queens.
