Insomniac Games has released a statement on its recent cyberattack.
On Tuesday a ransomware group released more than 1.3 million stolen files totalling 1.67 terabytes, containing information on Insomniac’s future titles and confidential staff information.
Now the studio has officially responded, explaining the effect the attack has had on the staff.
“Thank you for the outpouring of compassion and unwavering support,” the studio wrote on X (formerly Twitter). “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.”
Last week the group threatened to publish the stolen data within seven days, but first offered it for auction with a starting price of 50 Bitcoins (approximately $2 million).
One week later, the group followed through with its threat, reportedly releasing around 98% of the stolen data.
