Marvel's Wolverine Release Date: New Leaks Bring Disappointing News
Now that Marvel's Spider-Man 2 isn't the new kid on the block anymore, fans are turning their attention to Marvel's Wolverine. The game was announced back in 2021 but had no release date, although a few people found evidence for a potential 2024 launch on the PS5. However, the latest leaks suggest there are some changes in plans.
New information comes from internet tipster Daniel Richtman, who claims that the upcoming Marvel game won't be released anytime before 2025.
Marvel's Wolverine Release Date Leaks
Marvel's Wolverine is an upcoming action-adventure game developed by Insomniac Games. It features a brand-new narrative that is set in the same continuity as Marvel's Spider-Man games. Although we didn't have an officially announced release window, it was expected to hit the shelves in 2024.
However, a new scuttlebutt suggests that Marvel's Wolverine by Insomniac Games won't be released until 2025. According to the leaker Daniel Richtman, not only will the game not be released in 2024, but it will also feature a 'darker' and 'more violent' tone than the studio's previous titles.
The game is set in Madripoor, a Southeast Asian city within Marvel's universe and a common location for X-Men storylines in the comics. If the name sounds familiar, it is because you've probably seen it in MCU's The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Show.
Whether this means that we can expect the introduction of other iconic Marvel superheroes is another question entirely. However, since various characters such as Doctor Strange, The Fantastic Four, and The Avengers have been confirmed to exist in the game universe, it's something that can't be ruled for sure. There's also a chance that future games might feature a crossover between Wolverine and Spider-Man.
And that's everything you need to know about Marvel's Wolverine release window. Of course, with a release date at least 18 months away, there's plenty of time for things to change, and it's doubtful we'll get much official information about Insomniac's next title until Spider-Man 2 is out.
