Marvel's Wolverine is in the works at Insomniac, but the game is 'very early'


The claws are out

Insomniac really knows what it’s doing when it comes to Marvel properties, which is why we couldn’t be more thrilled to see it working on Marvel’s Wolverine for PS5.

The claws are coming out. We are thrilled to announce Marvel's Wolverine is in development exclusively for PlayStation 5! #WolverinePS5

Of all the Marvel properties, this is one we haven’t been adapted much in games, especially recently. With Wolverine being such a well-loved character in the Marvel canon, I can’t believe we didn’t see this coming before.

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,” noted Ryan Schneider, head of franchise strategy & studio relations at Insomniac Games.

“In the vein of our Spider-Man games, our goal here is to not only respect the DNA of what makes the character so popular, but also look for opportunities to make it feel fresh and truly reflect the Insomniac spirit. Even though Marvel’s Wolverine is very early in development, from what I’ve seen of its emotional narrative and cutting-edge gameplay (see what I did there?), the team is already creating something truly special.”

After how much we enjoyed Insomniac’s Spider-Man, I’m sure however long we’ll have to wait will be worth it.
