Insomniac Games Suffers Alleged Ransomware Attack

Insomniac Wolverine Release

Insomniac Games has suffered a ransomware attack, leaking employee personal information and future game plans, it’s been revealed.

First spotted by cyberdaily, the ransomware hacker group ‘Rhysida’ has posted proof of claims that they’ve hacked Wolverine developer Insomniac Games.

As proof of claims, the group has posted some employee (and ex-employee) personal data including passport images, as well as some images for the studio’s next game, Marvel’s Wolverine. Personal documents also include that from Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 voice actor Yuri Lowenthal, who voices Peter Parker.

The Rhysida group has said that Insomniac Games has seven days to make an undisclosed payment before the data is made public. The group, however, is also running a public auction on its website for the data, which states at around $2 million in bitcoin.

Their website reads, “With just 7 days on the clock, seize the opportunity to bid on exclusive, unique, and impressive data.”

In continues, “Open your wallets and be ready to buy exclusive data. We sell only to one hand, no reselling, you will be the only owner!”

Insomniac Games is officially expected to release its next game, Marvel’s Wolverine sometime in 2024.

Insomniac Games are yet to comment on the alledged hack, but we will update once we hear more.
