Insomniac Reveals Marvel’s Wolverine for PlayStation 5

Spider-Man isn't the only Marvel superhero getting the Insomniac treatment.

Perhaps in what was the biggest surprise outside of the Knights of the Old Republic Remake reveal, Sony and Insomniac Games announced Marvel’s Wolverine, an exclusive PS5 title featuring the Ol’ Canucklehead front and center.

The 53-second teaser trailer doesn’t go into much detail about the upcoming action-adventure title. Still, it does exude character, making every frame feel like it’s pulled straight out of a Wolverine comic — or even as outtakes from Logan.

As with many of the reveals that popped up during Sony’s PlayStation Showcase, there’s really not too much else to know about Marvel’s Wolverine right now. Story and gameplay details are nonexistent, and there’s still no release window, let alone a release date. 

Ryan Schneider, Head of Franchise Strategy & Studio Relations at Insomniac did say on the PlayStation Blog that Marvel’s Wolverine is a “standalone game.” Meaning Insomniac isn’t yet building its own Marvel multiverse … yet. 

Check out the trailer at the top of this article to see why we’re already excited for what’s to come from the Insomniac team. If it’s anything like the Spider-Man franchise, Wolverine fans are sure in for a treat. 

In other news, Insomniac also announced Spider-Man 2 alongside Marvel’s Wolverine. Miles Morales will team up with Peter Parker (finally) and take on Venom and what sounds like Kraven the Hunter.
