Marvel’s Wolverine Game: PS5 Release Date News, Rumours, and More


August 18, 2022

After the barnstorming success of Marvel’s Spider-Man, Insomniac Games are taking on another fan favourite Marvel character with a brand new game based on the adamantium-clawed Mutant, Wolverine.

It’s well documented that a lot of the team at Insomniac love their comics and it seems they’re also huge fans of the Logan too, with the devs previously suggesting his name came up a lot when discussing the team’s future beyond the web-slinger. Now it looks like Insomniac will finally get their chance and whilst the game is still quite far away from launching, there’s a lot we already know about the game. So read on for everything we know so far about Marvel’s Wolverine.

18 Aug Update - Checked for the latest Marvel's Wolverine news. All the most recent updates are found just below.

PS5 Release Date News

At the time of writing Marvel’s Wolverine game doesn’t have a release date. Insomniac Games have gone on record to say that it is in “very early development” when it was announced in late 2021. As such, we doubt we’ll be seeing the game until late 2023 at the very earliest. It’s worth noting that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is also slated for release in 2023. So we could see Marvel’s Wolverine pushed to 2024.

Is Marvel’s Wolverine coming to PS4?

As noted above, Marvel’s Wolverine is still quite a long way away, potentially well over two years away. Given this you would think it’s safe to assume that the game is only being developed for next-gen consoles and won’t be a cross-gen title like what we saw with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

Although Insomniac Games hasn’t gone out of their way to confirm that the game isn’t coming to PS4, they have previously posted a tweet that states it is “exclusively” for PlayStation 5. It’s also worth noting that Insomniac’s most recent title, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, was a PS5 platform exclusive.

Marvel’s Wolverine Trailer

Marvel’s Wolverine was announced during Sony’s PlayStation Showcase event in September 2021. The trailer does not show actual gameplay and is only a short teaser trailer to set the scene.

Based on the short teaser, the game appears to have a more bloody and mature tone, at least when compared to Insomniac Game’s Marvel’s Spider-Man title. You can take a look at the trailer just below:

Confirmed Details

With the game still quite far away there’s limited information about the game, however, we’ve listed below the key details which we have seen reported or confirmed by Insomniac staff.

Directed by Spider-Man: Miles Morales creative leads
Wolverine has a mature and emotional narrative
It will respecting the Wolverine DNA
A 'full-size' game

Easter Eggs

Although the Marvel’s Wolverine trailer was only a short teaser which didn’t offer any gameplay, it did contain quite a few subtle easter eggs which may or may not be hinting at the direction the game could be taking.

Everything from references to Hulk, Madripoor, and even a connection to Marvel’s Spider-Man which might place this game in the same connected universe. There are a lot of sneaky clues to be found, but rather than list them out have a watch of the below video to take a closer look and see for yourself.
