Capcom's network was recently hit with a customized ransomware attack. The hack yielded Capcom staff personal information and source code, as well as release information for various titles planned for 2020.

Earlier in November, Capcom's network was the target of a customized ransomware attack. While no customer info was taken, it is now clear that internal email and file servers were compromised.

The attackers stole around 1TB of data and Capcom stated that it is "consulting with the police as well as other related authorities while both carrying out an investigation and taking measures to restore its systems."

The hackers made off with Capcom staff personal information and source code, as well as release information for various titles planned for 2020. 

Some of the leaked information looks like it was taken from files that date back to 2018 so take the following with a grain of salt.

Ace Attorney collection

The ransomware attack resulted in some news about the new Ace Attorney collection. The collection is also coming to PlayStation 4 and is composed of the original trilogy and the two entries in the 3DS-based Great Ace Attorney / Dai Gyakuten Saiban series, bundled together in a physical two-pack release.

Seeing how not one of the Ace Attorney games was localised outside of Japan, it could happen that this bundle continues to be a Japanese exclusive.

Codename "Guillotine"

The leak also provides details about a new project codenamed "Guillotine", The project is seemingly slated to drop for Switch in February. Other systems will get "Guillotine" in May.

Monster Hunter Rise

There are also reports that Monster Hunter Rise demos will materialize in January and March and that the game is coming to the PC in October. 

Monster Hunter Stories 2 should also be getting a PC release in June - the same month it launches for Switch. According to the leaks, the players can expect some paid DLC expansions.

This news has come from illegally obtained documents so one would do well not to take it as official confirmation.
