Marvel’s Wolverine: A Prominent Writer For The Game!

Walt Williams has already shown that he can write a decent story… and as he’s officially on board Insomniac Games’ Wolverine game, in one aspect, the PlayStation 5-exclusive is almost a winner.


Ever since Sony Interactive Entertainment and Insomniac Games announced Marvel’s Wolverine in September, we’ve heard about nothing official about the game. And yet, there was one detail that was right under our noses for about the whole time that no one had revealed. So Shinobi602, a long-time insider (and now a brand manager at Untold Games), shared on Twitter that Walt Williams is the story lead at Insomniac Games, and he’s ten times more excited about the game because of it.

Who is Walt Williams? Between 2005 and 2014, he held several writing positions at Take-Two (2K Games, same thing…), but he had a seriously memorable role as the lead writer on Spec Ops: The Line, which launched in the summer of 2012 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. He went on to work on Star Wars: Battlefront II and Star Wars: Squadrons before joining Sony in March this year (Insomniac Games is now owned by the ‘blue team’).

In September, Insomniac Games wrote, “Back when we were working on Marvel’s Spider-Man, there would be times where all of us—Insomniac, Sony Interactive Entertainment, and Marvel—would brainstorm together about the future beyond the web-slinger. And even in those early discussions, Wolverine continually came up as the character we’d be stoked to work on together. Fast-forward a couple of years, and we’re suddenly standing in front of Sony Interactive Entertainment and Marvel formally pitching a PlayStation 5 game starring the adamantium-clawed Mutant!”

Marvel’s Wolverine doesn’t have a release date, but it’s sure to be a PlayStation 5 exclusive. It could show up on PC years down the line, seeing Sony’s strategy for PC ports…
