‘Black Butterfly’ Hackers take over ‘Atlas’ game, Servers Now Offline

Update: a 5 1/2 hour roll back was implemented to address the issues.

Official Atlas servers have been taken offline while the developers look in to reports of hacking/cheating by a group known as Black Butterfly.  Reports come after popular streamers recorded users spawning in items and creatures like giant whales, airplanes, and army tanks.

Check out footage of the cheating in progress from BurkeBlack.

Even stronger evidence can be seen here, as a player spawns a tank!

And even better, an airplane! 

Here is another angle of the whale spawning on their boat in the first video:
