Marvel's Wolverine Footage Leaked by Ransomware Group

The ransomware group has posted an estimated 98% of the stolen data online worth a total 1.7 TB of information. This content includes game development files alongside employee information. Multiple sources on Instagram have posted leaked in-game development footage.

 

The footage involved some traversal, combat, and cinematic set pieces where Wolverine can be seen fighting hoards of enemies inside a development sandbox. Furthermore, the clip also showed how Logan will be traversing the map and taking on various enemies in hordes. The footage showed different enemy types and climbing mechanics.

 

Another set of footage from the Instagram account included in-development footage from 2021 where the developers recorded a 'Senses Investigation' session for Wolverine. In the map, Wolverine climbed and entered a building as he investigated the belongings of the resident. Investigation mode, according to the footage, is similar to the Arkham games, where one can see silhouettes/X-rays of targets. 

 

The ransomware group also leaked an Insomniac timeline from a presentation slide, featuring unannounced games like Venom, Rachet and Clank, and a new IP. According to rumors, the leaks also feature a bootable version of Wolverine. However, data miners are still working to verify this claim. The heaps of data leaks by Rhysida are hinting to many upcoming titles from Insomniac games in the coming years.
