But they’ve also stated that “Marvel’s Wolverine is a standalone game being directed by Brian Horton (creative director) and Cameron Christian (game director), who recently led the creative efforts on Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, a game we’re extremely proud of at Insomniac.”

The latest reports point to a release between 2024-2025, putting it at least one year behind the upcoming Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.

What platforms will Wolverine be on?

Wolverine will be available on the PS5 due to Insomniac Games being a Sony first-party studio.

In a PlayStation development blog post announcing the release of the game, it stated “Veteran developer Insomniac Games creating two new titles for PlayStation 5 consoles”. Additionally, all announcements have been made with the #WolverinePS5 tag on Twitter.

What do we know about the story of Insomniac’s Wolverine game?

Obviously, given it’s still very early days yet, plot details remain scarce. However, reports from industry insider Jeff Grub claim the title is far more adult-oriented than Insomniac’s Spider-Man game. Specifically, the game is allegedly targeting an M-rating, with a gameplay system that could even feature dismemberment.

According to the same reports, the game will seemingly focus on Wolverine before his time with the X-Men. Though exactly when we pick things up or which other Marvel characters get involved all still remains to be seen for now.
