Insomniac Cinematic Animator Moving To Wolverine After Spider-Man 2

Expert Verified By

Wolverine Development Picking Up The Pace!

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is nearly here, and the game is expected to go gold at any moment. The game will be released on October 20, but Insomniac Games has already announced its next project, Marvel’s Wolverine.

Recently, Tommy Mann, a senior cinematic artist from the studio, announced that his journey with Marvel’s Wolverine has just begun.

Why it matters: This announcement suggests that many other developers will follow Tommy Mann as Insomniac Games accelerates the development of its next ambitious project for the PS5 console.

Tommy Mann has previously confirmed that he worked on many of the animations seen in the first gameplay reveal for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. In particular, the developer was focused on the combat animations for the symbiote suit Spider-Man.

However, the developer will now be focused on using his experience to bring a similar level of quality to the movement and combat animations in Marvel’s Wolverine.

Since Tommy Mann is mostly focused on animation, it appears Insomniac Games is moving over to a critical point in the development of Marvel’s Wolverine, focusing on animations and presentation.

This could also mean that the game is further along in development than the lack of updates from PlayStation may have suggested, which would line up with a report from Jeff Grubb.

Earlier this year, the reliable leaker claimed Insomniac Games had an internal target of Fall 2024 for the game, but the studio was open to delaying Marvel’s Wolverine to 2025 if needed.

With several developers expected to transition to the game after Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, the studio may be able to meet its internal target of a Fall 2024 release, continuing its impressive run of frequent game releases.

The game was first announced two years ago alongside Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. The latter is ready to be released next month, but not much has been said about Marvel’s Wolverine since the announcement.

Rumors have pointed to a mature rating for the game, potentially due to the brutal nature of Wolverine’s character and stories. Leaks also claim the game will feature semi-open-world levels instead of a large environment like Insomniac Games’ work on Spider-Man.

Marvel’s Wolverine will mark the character’s return to the gaming industry after several years.

Wolverine has previously been featured in games like X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which portrayed his brutal combat well but fell short in elements like production values and narrative.

Insomniac Games is expected to excel in all of these elements, potentially creating the definitive gaming adaptation for the character.
