Previously there were speculations that Wolverine might be released for Playstation 5 in 2023, the same year as Spider-Man 2. But some say this seems less possible as it is hard for a studio to release two big-budget titles at the same time.

Amidst all this there’s one post from a popular Twitter news source X-Men Updates has revealed that this game would not be seeing the light of day any time before 2025. Even though this has made some fans upset, they see it as a believable prediction. But fans are not very enthusiastic about this revelation.

It seems like Spider-Man 2 is the current priority for Insomniac games and they would get to work on Wolverine once they are done with it.
