Insomniac’s Creative Director Brian Horton has responded to a fan’s question on Twitter. The fan asked if the company’s upcoming Marvel’s Wolverine video game will be a full-size game or a length similar to that of the studio’s Miles Morales game. Horton respond that Marvel’s Wolverine will be a full-size game and added that it will have a “mature tone.”
Though Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is often cited as one of the best PlayStation exclusive titles, many players have drawn attention to the game’s short length. Many commentators have also pointed out the reuse of content and setting from the first Spider-Man game. This made fans wonder if the upcoming Marvel’s Wolverine will follow suit. With Horton’s response, it appears that won’t be the case.
The added “mature tone” response implies that Marvel’s Wolverine may be a more intense and violent game than the previous two Spider-Man games. Wolverine has always been one of the more violent superheroes, crossing lines that most other heroes won’t. It would make sense for Insomniac’s Wolverine to take a darker direction than their previous Marvel installments.
Marvel’s Wolverine was announced last Thursday during Sony’s PlayStation Showcase. Insomniac also announced in the same presentation that the company is working on Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 as well. Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is currently slated to release in 2023, while Marvel’s Wolverine has no release date.
