Insomniac Games has released a statement few days after a ransomware attack exposed millions of files including sensitive employee information, confidential business information, and assets for in-development games.

“We’re both saddened and angered about the recent criminal cyberattack on our studio and the emotional toll it’s taken on our team,” the statement posted on X read. “We have focused inwardly for several days to support each other.”

The hack was perpetrated by the Rhysida hacker group, who ransomed the data for $2 million in Bitcoin. When the ransom was not paid, hackers disseminated the information that includes Insomniac internal business plans, budget information, in-development assets for the studio’s upcoming Wolverine game, and employee personal identifiable information.

Insomniac’s response has focused on the impact this hack has had on its employees and reassured fans that work on Wolverine continues apace.

“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.”

However, that hasn’t stopped a playable PC build of Wolverine from being discovered in the hacked files. There are warnings for potential game spoilers regarding and to would-be pirates as downloading it could result in legal action from Insomniac as well as the threat of the build containing hacker-implanted malicious software.
