During the PlayStation Showcase, Insomniac Games showed a preview trailer for Wolverine, a new game that will feature the fan-favorite mutant from the X-Men franchise. The teaser trailer doesn’t reveal much about the game other than showing off Wolverine’s adamantium claws.
Wolverine is being developed by Insomniac Games, a game company quite familiar with Marvel IP. Insomniac Games is the company behind the critically acclaimed game Spiderman for PlayStation consoles, as well as Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. The studio has a particularly big role to play in Sony’s stream, as it has also released a trailer for Spider-Man 2.
Wolverine has been in various games over the years such as Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Marvel’s Ultimate Alliance 3, and even in the near future Marvel’s Midnight sun. However, this will be the first time in 12 years that Wolverine has starred in her own game. Wolverine: Origin was released in 2009 for PlayStation 2, PS3, Xbox, Xbox 360, PC, PlayStation Portable and Nintendo DS. Marvel’s Wolverine will be exclusive to PlayStation as it was developed by Insomniac, one of Sony’s most notable first-party studios. It is not yet known if it will appear on PS4 as well as PS5, considering how long it takes to complete the project.
We still don’t know any details about the story or gameplay of Wolverine, but with the lead of Insomniac Games, we can assume it will have the same quality as the Spider-Man games it has developed over the years. There is currently no release date for the game.
