ISPs Seemingly Clamping Down on Downloads of Stolen Marvel's Wolverine Build 1

It appears ISPs are contacting users alleged to have downloaded a stolen build of Marvel’s Wolverine. The upcoming PS5 exclusive featured in terabytes of data taken from developer Insomniac Games’ servers, and it would seem an early playable build of the anticipated superhero outing is now being illegally passed around.

A DMCA notice being shared on social media suggests ISPs like Comcast, presumably at the behest of Sony, are clamping down. “We remind you that use of our service in any manner that constitutes an infringement of copyrighted work is a violation of Comcast’s DMCA policy and may result in the suspension or termination of your service and account,” the message reads.

It doesn’t seem like there’s any punishment, although the recipients are encouraged to delete the offending files, which in this case is the Marvel’s Wolverine executable. In a statement earlier today, Insomniac Games said that it found the entire week “incredibly distressing” but remains “resilient” and will continue to develop its game as planned.
