Marvel’s Wolverine was announced at the end of 2021 exclusively for PS5.
Although we do not know all the games in which the components of PlayStation Studios work, the truth is that we know that Insomniac Games not only works on Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, because the studio also announced Marvel’s Wolverine exclusively for PS5. Although it is true that the sequel is expected in 2023, the truth is that Wolverine was aiming to be released later, since at the time it was said that it was in a very early stage of development. Now, an indication indicates that the game could also arrive in 2023.
Oddly enough, Microsoft has pointed out that Marvel’s Wolverine will be released exclusively for PS5 in 2023. The company, in its defense of the acquisition of Activision Blizzard, has wanted to argue that Sony is in full expansion while its purchase is being analyzed since it could decrease competition in the market in a considered manner.
While Sony may have delayed its PlayStation Showcase to avoid ramping up its exclusive games, Microsoft has said the company “also has a number of first-party and third-party exclusive titles scheduled for release in 2023, including Spider-Man 2, Wolverine, Horizon (VR), Final Fantasy 16, and Forspoken.”. In this way, Insomniac Games could be preparing the launch of its two games in development in the same year.
What we know about Marvel’s Wolverine
Marvel’s Wolverine is an independent game co-directed by Bryan Horton as creative director and Cameron Christian as game director. The two have worked side by side in the past leading Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. In fact, with Wolverine, the studio has the same goal as with Spider-Man: to respect what makes the character so popular, and at the same time, look for the opportunity to give him a fresh air that reflects the true spirit of Insomniac.
It’s hard to believe that Marvel’s Wolverine is coming out so soon, and it’s more than possible that Microsoft has targeted the game’s 2023 release to make believe that Sony’s catalog will be stronger than actually planned. In fact, the game recently changed its narrative director.
