Recently, developer Insomniac Games suffered from a severe criminal cyberattack, unveiling unprecedented information. The upcoming in-progress build of Marvel’s Wolverine game for PlayStation 5 and personal details of Insomniac Games employees was made public, with the latter being especially concerning, to an immensely distressing extent.
Naturally, we did not cover any of this leaked content and will continue not to.
Insomniac Games finally made a statement on the matter, expressing their sadness and anger about these events but emphasizing their resilience in continuing Marvel’s Wolverine development as planned.
We will share more information regarding Insomniac Games and their projects as it’s shared through appropriate, official avenues.
You can view Insomniac Games’ full message to fans below:
“Thank you for the outpouring of compassion and support.
We’re both saddened and angered about the recent criminal cyberattack on our studio and the emotional toll it’s taken on our team. We have focused inwardly for 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 details about Marvel’s Wolverine for PS5. 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. However, Insomniac is resilient. Marvel’s Wolverine continues as planned. The game is in production and will no doubt evolve throughout development, as do all our plans. We will share official information about Marvel’s Wolverine when the time is right.
