A man who claimed to be a member of the REvil gang had said in an interview given to the YouTube channel RussianOSINT on 23 October that the group was getting ready to attack a major gaming development firm and an announcement would be made about it soon.
He appears to have been referring to the attack on Gaming Partners International Corporation.
iTWire has contacted Gaming Partners International Corporation for comment.

REvil, which is also known as Sodinokibi, has been used in many attacks this year. It was used to hit the Meinhardt Group, an engineering consultancy with 51 offices worldwide and 5000 employees, American IT staffing company Artech Information Systems, and publicly traded professional distribution management firm DXP Enterprises.
Others to suffer were Adif, an infrastructure company owned by the Spanish Government, Argentina's biggest Internet service provider Telecom Argentina, leading retirement specialist Actuaries and Associates, the website of Cooke County in Texas, and Australian drinks manufacturer Lion.
Melbourne-based contract formulation and packing company Chem Pack, New York-based entertainment and media lawyers Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks, Sydney sports specialty store chain Instore, American food distribution firm Harvest/Sherwood Food Distributors, SeaChange, a global public supplier of video delivery software, and Melbourne-based government-accredited IT services provider Geidi were all hit by gangs using REvil as well.
