Unveiled in September 2021 during a Playstation Showcase, the Wolverine game developed by Insomniac Games has been very discreet ever since. However, and according to information collected by journalist Jeff Grubb, the release of the game would be set for the fall of 2024, just one year after the launch of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
A little return to the past is in order. Remember in September 2021, Sony made an appointment for a major new Playstation Showcase. With this conference, the manufacturer presented the future hits of the PS5, such as Gran Turismo 7, Forspoken, the remake of Star Wars: Knight of The Old Republic or even a certain God of War: Ragnarok.
During the event, the Insomniac Games studio created a surprise by releasing a first trailer for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. This sequel, currently expected for fall 2023, will bring together the two web weavers from New York, to know Peter Parker and Miles Moralesfor a new adventure.
But that’s not all, since the studio had another gift: a first trailer for a Wolverine game ! Be careful, however, you should not get carried away since, as Insomniac pointed out, the title is at a very early stage of development.
Finally some info on the upcoming Wolverine game on PS5
Here we are over a year and a half after the release of this trailer, and for now, information about this Wolverine game is scarce. But precisely, the journalist Jeff Grubb revealed some details on the title during a livestream of Giant Bomb.
According to him, two potential exit windows were mentioned by his sources. First of all, the game could arrive on Playstation as soon as fall 2024just one year after the launch of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. Nevertheless, the studio is also keeping the possibility of delay the release of Wolverine in 2025. “But if anyone can manage to release two major games, two massive AAAs, two years in a row, it’s Insomniac.” assures Jeff Grubb.
In addition, the journalist also tells us that the game will adopt a formula close to God of War: Ragnarok. In other words, no open world, but rather large semi-open areas to visit by following the storyline of the title. In addition, the title will not be in all hands, since Insomniac aims for a Rated-R classification (prohibited at least 17 years old in the USA). Another interesting point, the game’s story won’t intertwine with the studio’s Spider-Man games universe, nor in that of Fox’s X-Men films. It is therefore a totally new scenario, which will focus on the (mis)adventures of the character before his arrival in the team of mutants.
