Insomniac Games, the studio behind the smash-hit 2018 Marvel’s Spider-Man game, Ratchet & Clank, 2020’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and more, is now working on a brand-new video game based on Marvel’s very best at what he does; the one and only Wolverine. Marvel Entertainment and Insomniac revealed the upcoming title during today’s PlayStation Showcase 2021. You can check out the reveal teaser trailer below.

Insomniac Games is currently developing the title exclusively for PlayStation 5 in collaboration with Marvel Games and Sony PlayStation. The game does not yet have a release date, and the teaser trailer doesn’t feature any actual gameplay footage.

Instead, the teaser only shows Wolverine alone at a bar in the aftermath of what appears to be a knockdown, drag-out barroom brawl. A thug then sneaks up on good ‘ole Wolvie with a knife from behind, but obviously that’s a bad idea since Wolverine has enhanced senses and can already hear him coming. Wolverine then grunts and pops out one set of his iconic adamantium claws before the teaser comes to a close.

There have been a number of solo Wolverine game titles released in the past; the last being the X-Men Origins: Wolverine game tie-in to the 2009 movie of the same name. The iconic X-Men character has also been playable in a number of Marvel and X-Men-themed video games released throughout the years.
