In a recent cyber attack, the Ryhsida ransomware gang targeted Insomniac, the developer behind the upcoming Wolverine game. The breach on December 12th led to the release of 1.67 terabytes of data, including level designs, character materials, and undisclosed details about Insomniac and Sony games.

Other leaked projects include a third Spider-Man game, a Venom-based game, and a new Ratchet and Clank entry.

The Ryhsida group, implicated in both attacks, was noted for using VPNs and compromised credentials, as highlighted in a recent cybersecurity alert by the US Department of Justice and Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency.

Sony, Insomniac’s parent company, has yet to respond to the leaked materials. This incident follows Sony’s MOVEit cyberattacks earlier this year, affecting around 6,800 employees.
