A surprise was announced on the PlayStation Showcase tonight, at least for some of us: a game starring Wolverine is in development.
Currently in the early development of Insomniac Games, Marvel’s Wolverine It’s an independent title, starring everyone’s favorite Vajra Claw mutant.
Insomniac said that when the team was discussing what to do when Spider-Man was finished, they came up with an idea for a game starring this guy in a brainstorming session. Wolverine always seems to appear as a character that everyone wants to work with, so a few years later, Insomniac voted this game for Sony Interactive Entertainment and Marvel, and we are here today.
The game is directed by Brian Horton (creative director) and Cameron Christian (game director), who led the creative work of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. According to the studio, the goal is to “respect the DNA that made this character so popular”, but also to look for opportunities to make him feel fresh and “truly embody the spirit of Insomniac.”
There is no release window for the PS5 game because it is in the early stages of development. We also have Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 from Insomniac worth looking forward to. It will be released in 2023. As the years go by, 2023 will come before we know it.
