Insomniac Responds To Ransomware Hack

Insomniac Games Hacked Ransomware Attack

Days after a ransomware group released over 1 million files it had stolen from Insomniac Games in a recent hack, Insomniac has published a full response to the matter.

The statement was released via social media, but you can read the entire message below:

“Thank you for the outpouring of compassion and unwavering support. It’s deeply appreciated. We’re both saddened and angered about the recent criminal cyberattack on our studio and the emotional toll it’s taken on our dev team. We have focused inwardly for the last several days to support each other.

We are aware that the stolen data includes personal information belonging to our employees, former employees, and independent contractors. It also includes early development details about Marvel’s Wolverine for PlayStation 5. We continue working quickly to determine what data was impacted.

This experience has been extremely distressing for us.

We want everyone to enjoy the games we develop as intended and as our players deserve. However, like Logan….Insomniac is resilient. Marvel’s Wolverine continues as planned. The game is in early production and will no doubt greatly evolve throughout development, as do all our plans.

While we appreciate everyone’s enthusiasm, we will share official information about Marvel’s Wolverine when the time is right.

On behalf of everyone at Insomniac, thank you for your ongoing support during this challenging time.”

PlayStation Studios and Sony, the parent company of Insomniac Games, have yet to release their own statement on the hack and subsequent data leaks. Insider Gaming has reached out multiple times for comment, but no response has been received.
