A ransomware group called Rhysida claims to have gained access to Insomniac Games and stolen internal data. Some of this stolen data is reportedly information about the studio's upcoming Wolverine game and private staff information such as passports.

The initial reports about this ransomware attack on Insomniac Games comes from cyberdaily and TheCyberExpress. These reports say that Rhysida posted limited proof that backed up their claims of infiltrating Insomniac's servers. The data they shared includes a screenshot reported from Wolverine, pieces of character art, and scans of passports for Insomniac employees.

The group claiming responsibility for the attack is attempting to sell all of the data they stole for 50 BTC, or roughly $2 million (USD). The group issued a seven day deadline to purchase this data, with the thought being that they will release the stolen data if they do not receive payment.

Insomniac parent company, Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE), issued a statement that acknowledges the reports.

We are aware of reports that Insomniac Games has been the victim of a cyber security attack. We are currently investigating this situation. We have no reason to believe that any other SIE or Sony divisions have been impacted.
