Marvel’s Wolverine Announced By Insomniac Games (VIDEO)
Insomniac Games’ Marvel’s Spider-Man titles are some of Sony’s best console exclusive games, which certainly helps explain why the PlayStation company acquired the studio. Now, following the success of Miles Morales, the studio has announced that it’s working on its own take of yet another popular Marvel character: Wolverine.
During the latest PlayStation Showcase, Insomniac Games officially announced that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is now in development. Following the announcement, the studio released a brief teaser trailer for Marvel’s Wolverine that shows the titular flannel-clad character in what appears to be the aftermath of a bar fight. An unknown figure approaches from behind and, in response, Wolverine unsheathes one of his claws. Check it out below:
“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,” Insomniac Games’ Ryan Schneider explained in a recent blog post. “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.”
Marvel’s Wolverine is now in development for PlayStation 5.
