Sony already now has various exclusives, temporal or total, from its own set for the 2023. They are PS5 games like Final Fantasy 16, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, Forspoken and more are expected to arrive. Among the various games it seems that it is also included Marvel’s Wolverine. However, it is not Sony to say it and not even a leaker, but Microsoft writing to the CMA – the UK regulator – about the acquisition of Activision Blizzard.
Marvel’s Wolverine is one of the games in development at Insomniac Games, alongside Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. The latter, recently, was reconfirmed for 2023 and we always assumed that Marvel’s Wolverine would arrive later, but according to Microsoft it is not. .
As you can also see in the image below, Microsoft has included the game in the list of PS5 titles coming in 2023together with others already mentioned.
An excerpt from a Microsoft document where Wolverine is mentioned among the games of 2023
Let us specify immediately that this it should not be considered as a confirmation. It seems unlikely that Microsoft has concrete evidence of the publication of Marvel’s Wolverine on PS5 in 2023. As already mentioned, Insomniac Games is currently working on Marvel’s Spider-Man 2: having two AAA projects coming out in the same year seems very unlikely.
It is more credible that Microsoft has made a mistake in good faith, or that it has deliberately “inflated” the list of exclusive games coming to PS5 in the short term to emphasize that the competitor has no problems in terms of catalog.
In this period, in fact, the two companies are practically explaining to CMA how strong and dominant the competitor is, trying instead to explain how their company is more limited and less competitive than it seems. Sony is still ready to dictate its terms, explaining what Microsoft cannot do, even if it acquires Call of Duty.
