Marvel’s Wolverine, one of two upcoming projects by Insomniac Games, has become the latest victim of leaks. Jeff Grubb, a reputable insider in the industry, revealed some intriguing information about the game.

R Rating and 2024 Release

According to Grubb, Insomniac is reportedly expecting a “Hard R” rating as the title will feature mature content, violence, and strong language. The game is allegedly planned for launch a year after Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, meaning a fall 2024 release is in the cards. However, the developers are internally talking about a potential 2025 launch date.

He further claimed that the game would not be related to Fox X-Men movies; instead, it could be in the same universe as Marvel’s Spider-Man games. He speculated that a tease of Wolverine in the upcoming Spider-Man 2 is possible. Grubb also mentioned that Wolverine is not an open-world game, but rather having multiple open sections of the world.

While everything sounds promising, we still recommend you take this with a grain of salt. Leaks are fun, but nothing beats an official confirmation.

Mature Theme and Spec Ops Writer

Choosing a mature theme for Wolverine seems like the correct choice. He isn’t exactly a kid-friendly character. Players should have seen this coming when Walt Williams was hired as the writer for the game. Williams previously worked on Spec Ops: The Line — an acclaimed anti-war game that dealt with the horrors of war and its human toll.

Insomniac Games Previous Games

Insomniac Games has worked on multiple iconic franchises like Resistance, Spyro, and Ratchet & Clank. The developer is also the most efficient studio of Sony. In the last five years, the studio released two major Spider-Man titles, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and one impressive remaster.

Two-above mentioned games, Spider-Man 2 and Wolverine, are AAA titles. The former is targeting a late 2023 release, and both titles will be exclusive to PlayStation 5.
