Game news Hackers infiltrate PlayStation Studio, and they have information about one of the most important PS5 exclusives!
Insomniac Games is undoubtedly one of PlayStation’s biggest guns and is currently hard at work (or so we imagine) on Marvel’s Wolverine, which we don’t know much about yet. Unfortunately, the studio has just been hacked.
There is no doubt that one of Insomniac Games’ big strengths is its productivity: since the beginning of the new generation alone, the company has released three games, namely Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales, Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart, and Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. Once again, The studio has confirmed that it is working on Marvel’s Wolverine, a project that is still very mysterious but is generating great excitement.
While 2024 will likely be a proper reveal year, developers are seeing the rug pulled out from under them by Rhysida Ransomware, a group of cybercriminals active only since 2023, which managed to hack the famous Sony studio : Not only did they reveal the identities of employees (including Yuri Lowenthal, the voice actor of Peter Parker), and email exchanges about Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 as evidence of the hack.but they also and above all… released the first images of Marvel’s Wolverine.
In these images, we can see Wolverine from behind – this is preview gameplay – as well as sketches revealing the look of another Marvel character. A real hit ruins the planned communications around the game, and again: Hackers are threatening to release more data in their possession unless Insomniac Games pays a ransom of about $2 million in bitcoins. The company will have seven days to pay, otherwise more data will be published.
What’s moreLeaked documents revealed that Insomniac Games is working on three more games alongside Marvel’s Wolverine., a new Ratchet & Clank game, Marvel’s Spider-Man 3, and even another game in the Spider-Verse (perhaps the Venom-themed title we talked to you about not too long ago?). The company has not yet issued any public reaction to this painful issue.
