You’ll be able to play as Logan but not a lot of details have been announced about the game.

Marvel’s Wolverine is a standalone game being directed by Brian Horton (creative director) and Cameron Christian (game director), who recently led the creative efforts on Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, a game we’re extremely proud of at Insomniac. In the vein of our Spider-Man games, our goal here is to not only respect the DNA of what makes the character so popular, but also look for opportunities to make it feel fresh and truly reflect the Insomniac spirit. Even though Marvel’s Wolverine is very early in development, from what I’ve seen of its emotional narrative and cutting-edge gameplay (see what I did there?), the team is already creating something truly special.

No release date has been announced for Marvel’s Wolverine yet but is currently in development for PS5.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2

Insomniac is back with everyone’s favourite web-head with a sequel to 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man.
