- Marvel’s Wolverine is the next Insomniac Games project that gamers are most excited about.
- The game was formally announced in 2021 and has no follow-up word dropped for it afterward.
- As per a new rumor, the Wolverine title will not come out until 2025.
After wrapping up its brilliant work on Marvel’s Spider-Man, Insomniac Games has another, highly promising project to look forward to—Marvel’s Wolverine. While details on the game have remained awfully scant from the moment it was first announced, a new rumor has paved the way for interesting details to slide in, revolving around the release window and the overall tone of the game.
As per Daniel Richtman’s new Patreon post, which requires a membership to access, Marvel’s Wolverine won’t come out next year in 2024. Instead, it’s likely to be released sometime in the year after, which, to be fair, is a bit of a bummer if the rumor is anything to go by. Daniel has built up a name for himself, particularly in the superhero-centric media, having made multiple accurate predictions in the past.
Moving forward, the post on the leaker’s Patreon also spills the beans on the overall setting of Marvel’s Wolverine, which is in Madripoor. According to the 1998 comic book series of the character in question, this lawless island is something that Logan gets particularly attached to, following the spread of a ruse leading the world to believe that the X-Men have all passed away.
Therefore, it’s perfectly likely for Marvel’s Wolverine to have its roots dug deep in Madripoor. Besides, out of the two Wolverine easter eggs that Insomniac has put in Spider-Man 2, one of them encompasses a mention of the country at hand, specifically during the “Bad Guys on the Block” mission when Spider-Man is going through Dr. Farley Stillwell’s research.
One final piece of information that Daniel gave away pertains to the tone of the upcoming Wolverine game, which is said to be darker and more violent than anything Insomniac has worked on prior. This is a little on the obvious side, though, because another rumor has already hinted that the studio is plotting an M for Mature rating for Marvel’s Wolverine.
It bears mentioning that none of this information is set in stone at the moment, considering how it comes from third-party sources. Please take a grain of salt as you go about reading these rumors. What we do know for sure, on the other hand, is that both Wolverine and Spider-Man share the same universe in Insomniac’s games, so there’s that.

On a side note, an Insomniac Games dev made a tweet in September, confirming that Insomniac is going full-steam ahead on Marvel’s Wolverine development, having finally launched Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. Unfortunately, this is about as much official information as you can get on the project at the moment—there have been no further announcements regarding the title yet.
The Wolverine IP by Insomniac traces its first announcement back at the PlayStation Showcase in 2021, which showed off a simple yet amazingly exciting tease for the sometimes hero sometimes anti-villain.
