Marvel’s Wolverine Is Reportedly Set For Release In 2024, Unannounced Bend Studio Title In 2025
Marvel’s Wolverine is reportedly set for release sometime in the year 2024, while an unannounced title from Bend Studio will arrive in 2025, based on the latest information.
According to the ArtStation profile of concept artist Hung Nguy, Marvel’s Wolverine will arrive in store shelves sometime next year in 2024 and an unannounced title from Bend Studio will release in 2025. As per his resume, he has worked as a concept artist on both titles.
This information is in line with what Jeff Grubb, who is known for his sources within the game industry, had stated not too long ago. During an earlier episode of GiantBomb’s Game Mess Mornings, he revealed that Marvel’s Wolverine will be rated M for mature, and will see release sometime within the Fall 2024 window.
According to Grubb, Marvel’s Wolverine is aiming to launch a year after Spider-Man 2 in Fall 2024. However, he added that Insomniac is internally discussing a 2025 release date, suggesting that things aren’t set in the stone at this point in time. Grubb also claimed that Insomniac is aiming for a “hard R” rating, implying an M for mature rating as per the ESRB. He further stated that the game will be avoiding any ties to Fox’s X-Men movies.
Grubb also revealed some details regarding the gameplay, stating that Marvel’s Wolverine will likely feature human dismemberment that Respawn wasn’t able to incorporate in Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order due to its T for teen rating. Additionally, he said that the game will not feature an open world, and will likely take a semi-open/wide-linear approach to level design, similar to that of God of War.
Marvel’s Wolverine is currently in development for the PS5. The game is being developed by Insomniac Games and PlayStation in collaboration with Marvel Games. Recently, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Game Director Bryan Intihar had confirmed that the Spider-Man games and Marvel’s Wolverine exist in the same universe.
