WOLVERINE Creative Director Confirms That The Video Game Will Have A "Mature Tone"
While he stopped short of confirming that the game will be officially rated M, Insomniac's Brian Horton has revealed that the upcoming Wolverine video game will be "full size" with a "mature tone."
Wolverine fans are still buzzing after last week's announcement that the mutant berserker will be getting his own video game from Spider-Man developers Insomniac, and we now have an update that's sure to get them even more hyped.
The brief teaser didn't give us a whole lot to go on, but the game's rating was the subject of a lot of discussion. Most would agree that Logan is a character that would benefit from a more adult-rated game - especially if he's going to be depicted clawing his way through swatches of enemies.
Creative Director Brian Horton responded to a fan's query on Twitter, and while he didn't confirm that the game will actually be rated M (that might be a bit much to hope for), he did clarity that it will have a "mature tone." He also revealed that Wolverine will be a "full size" game, as opposed to an expansion project like the recent Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

Wolverine is in the very early stages of development et (we may not see it until summer 2023), so a lot of things are likely subject to change. We do know that it will be set in the same universe as the Spider-Man games, making an eventual crossover a possibility. There are also rumors that the gameplay will feature more of a hack 'n slash style similar to God of War, but that's yet to be confirmed.
