Rumor: Marvel's Wolverine Targeting Mature Rating - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 02 February 2023 / 1,782 Views
Reporter Jeff Grubb during today's Giant Bomb livestream stated he has heard Insomniac Games' Marvel’s Wolverine is targeting a mature rating and could release as early as 2024, but heard internally the target is 2025.
"Hard R is what they’re going for… that’s one of the concepts that I’ve heard," said Grubb via VideoGamesChronicle. "I think an M-rated Wolverine could work, I think an M-rated superhero game could work, and this is probably the right character."
He added, "They will [also] avoid having any links or anything that evokes the Fox movies – they want it to stand on its own. I was trying to nail down the setting and have heard it will start before he joins the X-Men, which also makes sense for a Wolverine game.
"Maybe the surprising thing for me is that I’ve heard two different dates… I’ve heard as early as fall 2024, which would be wild. Insomniac is putting out Spider-Man 2 this fall… I’ve also heard internally they’re still very much talking about 2025, so let’s not be surprised if that’s what happens.
"But if anyone can pull off releasing two major, triple-A, massive games in back-to-back years, it is Insomniac."
Marvel’s Wolverine was announced in September 2021 for the PlayStation 5.

Insomniac can do this!
Putting out bangers after bangers back to back!
Absolutely gaddamn workhorses!
Indeed they where one of the best buys sony ever got. Their work load is imo unmatched.
Hell yeah! Logan was my favorite X-Men movie, not just because of how grounded and emotional the story was, but because it truly did Wolverine justice in just how graphic him slicing dudes up should be like.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine proves Wolverine works best at an M-rating. That game is one of the extremely rare cases where the game was better than the movie! I do hope this game evolves the combat of that game and just goes balls to the walls.
Turning people into lunch meat is kinda Wolverine's thing. I don't see how any other rating would work.
