When Insomniac Games announced Marvel’s Wolverine in 2021, little was said about development or a projected release date. It’s safe to presume there are more important issues because the seasoned developer is undoubtedly working diligently on Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, which is scheduled for release later in 2023.
The first information about the upcoming Wolverine game seems to be slowly leaking out. We might already be aware of the game’s release date, setting, and likely rating, according to Giant Bomb’s Jeff Grubb, renowned for providing accurate insider information.
Grubb allegedly stated on Giant Bomb’s Twitch channel (via GameSpot) that Marvel’s Wolverine may debut in late 2024 and that Insomniac will seek a mature rating to appropriately depict the savagery of Wolverine’s backstory and skills.
That would be incredible if it happened as early as [Fall] 2024 (Northern Hemisphere). Grubb stated, “Insomniac is releasing Spider-Man 2 this [Fall] 2023 [Northern Hemisphere].” I’ve also heard from inside that they’re still heavily focused on 2025, so don’t be shocked if that occurs.
Yet Insomniac is the only developer to pull off delivering two massive, triple-A games in back-to-back years. “Hard R” is the desired effect, I believe. I’ve heard that as one of the concepts. They won’t use references to the Fox movies or anything similar. They want it to stand alone.
To that end, Grubb thinks the narrative will completely omit any mention of the X-Men and instead focus on Wolverine in his “lone wolf” days before joining the superhero group. That gives the game room to present players with a unique, stand-alone narrative.
Also, it creates a variety of opportunities. There is promise in crafting a Wolverine story sans the X-Men, even though Grubb did not detail the period Marvel’s Wolverine will focus on — or perhaps this has yet to be determined. Based on his comic book roots, the hero had a lot of experiences before joining the squad.

He served in the Canadian army during World War 1 and had a son while living in the made-up city of Madripoor. He also fought alongside Captain America in World War 2, was taken prisoner and subjected to experiments by covert government agents, and even engaged in combat with other superheroes like the Hulk before making his way to Xavier’s school.
Although the early teaser for the game seems to represent Wolverine in the modern day, flashbacks could certainly explore this past in great detail. Any of these tales would be worthwhile to be told.
In any case, Wolverine from Marvel is a fascinating idea. The earliest possible release date for the game now appears to be later in 2024, but we’ll probably learn more after Spider-Man 2 debuts in late 2023. Follow us for more information.
