I very recently received an email about a game called Town of Salem having a data breach and i used the site "haveibeenpwned" and it showed me the same data breach so i am aware of the data breach being real and that my email has apparently been copied from it however i am not sure what this means. Can someone give me some advice on whether i should be very concerned in general or not? i am fairly certain that nothing else shares the same email and password with it and i have only ever played the game once and never purchased anything in it so there shouldnt be any other information to get, should i migrate my emails and create a new account? i have made a lot of different game accounts and used this email a lot so i would prefer it if i did not have to.

i had all of my accounts broken into over the summer. I had literally no valuable info on the accounts, i immediately changed every password and put 2FA on everything. For some reason the hacker is still trying to get into my fortnite account that i changed the password to over 4 months ago, i have no skins or anything in fortnite so i have no clue why he's still trying to log into my account.

Maybe he feels bad for you and wants to give you some skins? Good guy hacker?

Its probably just an automated script doing it, doubt anyone is specifically targeting you. You're probably just on a list of accounts to try.
