Insomniac Has Issued A Statement On That Devastating Ransomware Attack

"Like Logan...Insomniac is resilient."

Insomniac has broken its few days of silence after a devastating ransomware attack exposed nearly 2TB of its data to the internet including working builds and footage of the upcoming Marvel’s Wolverine, internal presentations, company records, sensitive personal employee information and more.

In a note posted to social media, the studio thanked folks for their support, while underscoring the deep burden and distress this attack has caused its developers. It shows a hesitant appreciation for the enthusiasm that fans have for Wolverine, which has of course resulted in the stolen material circulating like wildfire, but unsurprisingly stresses that it’ll share information in an official capacity when it’s ready and in a position to do so.

The full note reads:

“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.”
