Insomniac is reportedly aiming for a "hard R" rating for Wolverine and plans to release it by Fall 2024, 1 year after Spider-Man 2

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it has it Insomniac is reportedly aiming for a "hard R" rating for Wolverine and plans to release it by Fall 2024, 1 year after Spider-Man 2.

Most notably, Grubb says Insomniac is going in a “hard-R” or M-rated direction with the game. Obviously, that’s something a lot of fans have been hoping for, but it was hardly a lock. Insomniac usually sticks to T-rated games and while some other Wolverine media has gone the bloody R-rated route, a lot of it has remained PG-13 as well.

“These are small tidbits about Wolverine that I've been hearing from someone I know that's been very familiar with [Insomniac] for a very long time. Hard R is what they're going for from the concepts I've heard, which I think is the right move for Wolverine. I think an M-rated Wolverine game can work, I think an M-rated superhero game can work."

Grubb also hints the Wolverine game will be set in its own universe, unrelated to the Fox movies, probably won’t be fully open-world, and may be coming our way as soon as Fall 2024, although that may be a stretch with Spider-Man 2 on the way this year.

It probably won't be full open world. Well, Spider-Man was. First of all, Spider-Man has a completely different traversal than Wolverine would have. What they're probably going to end up doing is something closer to open sections of a world. Maybe similar to other modern major Sony games.”

Of course, take this all with a grain of salt for now. It all sounds plausible enough, and Grubb is often right about broad-picture stuff, but sometimes he gets the individual details wrong. Still, an M-rated Wolverine action game perhaps somewhat in the style of God of War sounds good to me, so fingers crossed.

Marvel’s Wolverine has been announced for PS5. A release window has yet to be revealed.

The Wolverine game was announced during a PlayStation Showcase event in September 2021, as was Insomniac’s Spider-Man 2, at which point it claimed the title was in “very early development”.

The game will be a standalone title directed by Brian Horton and Cameron Christian, who were the creative leads on Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

Announcing the Wolverine game, Insomniac’s head of franchise strategy and studio relations Ryan Schneider said: “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, the team is already creating something truly special.”

And if you're wondering how Wolverine might play, Grubb claims it'll move away from the fully open-world focus of Insomniac's acclaimed Spider-Man to deliver a God of War Ragnarok-style semi-open experience set across a number of locations.

Of course, with a release date still reportedly at least 18 months away, there's plenty of time for things to change, and it seems unlikely we'll get much official word about Insomniac's Wolverine project until Spider-Man 2 is out the way.
