Even though we know so, so little about it, Marvel’s Wolverine is easily one of the most exciting games on the horizon right now.
When it comes to Insomniac Games’ upcoming titles, most of the world’s focus has been (and rightly so), on Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. The PS5-exclusive web-slinging adventure is set to release this autumn (although when exactly in that time period is currently unknown), and Peter Parker’s voice actor, Yuri Lowenthal, has teased that it'll be “massive” and “astonishing”, so we can be sure that we have plenty to look forward to.
Take a look at the teaser trailer for Marvel’s Wolverine below.
Marvel’s Wolverine is still probably quite a while away from being released, but as VGC reports, one prominent industry insider has now claimed to have heard a potential release window for the game - as well as its age rating.
Giant Bomb’s Jeff Grubb appeared on a stream yesterday (2 February), where he said that the devs are going for an R rating. “I think an M-rated Wolverine could work,” he added. “I think an M-rated superhero game could work, and this is probably the right character.”
He continued: “They will [also] avoid having any links or anything that evokes the Fox movies - they want it to stand on its own. I was trying to nail down the setting and have heard it will start before he joins the X-Men, which also makes sense for a Wolverine game.”
Most excitingly, he claims that the title could release as soon as next year: “Maybe the surprising thing for me is that I’ve heard two different dates… I’ve heard as early as fall 2024, which would be wild. Insomniac is putting out Spider-Man 2 this fall… I’ve also heard internally they’re still very much talking about 2025, so let’s not be surprised if that’s what happens.”
As with any leak or unofficial information, do take all this with a pinch of salt until it’s confirmed by the devs. Assuming that what Grubb says is true, though, it’s all sounding very promising.
