In recent years, leaks have plagued the excitement surrounding the majority of video games. We observed GTA VI facing a similar issue, and while it didn’t suffer as much, it appears to be something that is damaging not only to the audience but also to the people who worked on it.
Today, a similar incident occurred with the developer of Spider-Man 2, Insomniac Games. Allegedly, they were hacked by a ransomware group known as Rhysida. What’s more, the group is demanding an amount of almost north of $2 million in Bitcoin through a public auction for the data they claim to possess.
They claim to have personal information about Insomniac employees, including internal emails, passports, addresses, and more, which they are willing to expose.

The Wolverine Leaks
As evidence of having Insomniac’s data, the group has purportedly released screenshots of the unreleased “Wolverine” game. The leaks do not reveal anything about the story of the game, but the posts do showcase character art for the game. Moreover, Rhysida has disclosed details about PlayStation employees and collaborators, including Spider-Man Peter Parker’s voice actor, Yuri Lowenthal.
Here at Appuals, we do not endorse any form of leaks, so we will not be featuring any of them here. But this is a situation that is different than other leaks in the sense that the hacker has access to employee information including passports and addresses, which is a lot more dangerous in terms of its long-term effects.
With seven days’ time limit, it seems as if more information would be leaked if the hackers’ demands aren’t catered to. This is all we know for now, but rest assured that we will keep you updated as new information becomes available.
