A week after the cyber attack on Insomniac Games, hackers have begun releasing data online, including details about the highly anticipated Wolverine game.
- Following the cyber attack, details about Insomniac’s Wolverine were leaked online, including distributions, concept art, and what is believed to be an alpha version.
- The leaked details also hint at potential projects such as a Spider-Verse game and other titles set in the Marvel universe.
- Cyber attacks on game companies continue to increase and the leaked details include personal information about employees and potential future projects, putting Insomniac Games in a difficult position.
Following the latest cyberattack, details about Insomniac’s next game, Wolverine, were leaked online. The massive leak comes just a week after ransomware group Rhysida attacked Insomniac Games and threatened to release a lot of confidential information. The group initially released some documents, but it now appears that all the data has been released.
At the beginning of December, Insomniac Games was hit by a ransomware attack from the Rhysida group. The attackers claimed to have gained access to a large amount of confidential documents, revealing information about employees and future projects. Insomniac Games has yet to comment, but Sony has confirmed that the company is investigating the attack. Unfortunately, recent leaks suggest that the situation for PlayStation developers and studios is becoming more difficult.
So far, most of the leaks focus on the next Wolverine game. One of the details leaked is the cast of Marvel’s Wolverine, suggesting that classic Wolverine characters such as Sabretooth and Deathstrike will appear in the game along with lesser-known characters from the Marvel IP. Among the actors who have been leaked are Troy Baker and Debra Wilson, from Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Test images, concept art, and an alpha version of the game have also been released. Sony and Insomniac have not commented on this heated situation, but these new leaks may indicate that the Rhysida Group is putting pressure on the company to meet its monetary demands.
Of course, the Wolverine game is not the only project affected by the attack. Documents originally leaked by the Rhysida team hinted that Insomniac Games may be working on a Spider-Verse game that runs parallel to Spider-Man 3. Some speculated that it could be a multiplayer project. Some speculated that it could be a multiplayer project. Interestingly, the leak also hints at the possibility that the studio is working on separate Venom and X-Men games.
In recent years, cybercriminals have been targeting major game companies. Last year, details of GTA 6 were leaked online, causing major problems for Rockstar until the official trailer was released, which was also leaked in advance. Unfortunately, it seems Insomniac Games has a similar problem. It is unclear how this situation will play out for Insomniac, especially since the dataset contains not only game content but also the personal information of some employees. It is also possible that the studio’s plans have been ruined, so preventing such a leak will be a complicated scenario for Insomniac Games.
