Insomniac Games teases Marvel’s Wolverine game for the Playstation 5
Insomniac Games has officially teased a new Marvel game starring Wolverine called Marvel’s Wolverine coming soon for the Playstation 5.
You can check out the trailer for Marvel’s Wolverine below:
In this Marvel’s Wolverine announcement trailer, we barely get to see any action but rather just a quiet moment for the feral mutant as he sits in a bar and at the end, he pops his famous claws.
Now according to the Playstation Blog, they have been pitching a game starring Wolverine as early as when they began development for the first Spider-Man game on the Playstation 4 and it kept popping back up until they pitched the idea to Sony Entertainment heads and Marvel which eventually gets greenlit.
More details about the game below:
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. 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.
Being able to build a new, original universe with Spider-Man and now Wolverine is such an honor for so many of us at Insomniac Games. A huge thanks to our Sony Interactive Entertainment family for giving us the opportunity to develop these games, Marvel for trusting us with characters that mean so much to so many people, and of course, our fans for continuing to believe in us.
