Leaked documents from Insomniac hint at the development of a Spider-Verse game
Documents supposedly obtained from a recent hack at Insomniac Games may indicate that the studio is working on a new Spider-Verse game, as well as a couple of other unannounced projects.
As spotted by Reddit user sut345, internal documents that allegedly belong to Insomniac have leaked, with one of them mentioning that Spider-Man 3, “RCE,” and another confirmed to be Spider-Verse in a separate document are all planned to enter development.
The developer is currently working on a new multiplayer title, and given that Marvel's Spider-Verse features various versions of Spider-Man, fans believe the two could be linked. “I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if Insomniac's multiplayer game is a Spider-Verse game where you get to create your own Spider character,” said u/poklane. “Full suit customization, select what powers you want.”
News of the hack at Insomniac broke yesterday, with Sony confirming that the claims were true and that it was investigating the attack. Rhysida, a ransomware group, claimed responsibility and stated that it currently has various files and documents containing future project plans, Wolverine development information, and personal data such as passport scans belonging to employees.
