Insomniac may have been at a high with the successful release of Spider-Man 2 around the fall, but the studio met the holidays with some distressing news in the form of a massive leak that gave fans a look at the next decade of their projects in development including the upcoming Wolverine game and Venom solo project.
A lot of fans have started getting worried that the studio will have to end up pulling the game after what’s been revealed, but now Insomniac has come out with a statement addressing the leaks and any upcoming future projects. Here’s the post:

Take note, besides a look at what’s been worked on, the leak had also revealed the personal information of current and former employees at Insomniac. Despite this though, the studio has assured fans that the game will be pushing forward. “Like Logan… Insomniac is resilient. Marvel’s Wolverine continues as planned. The game is in early production and will no doubt greatly evolve throughout development, as do all our plans,” reads the statement.
Other games that have been revealed in the leak include a solo Venom game dubbed Lethal Protector, the next Spider-Man title, as well as full-on X-Men game. Seeing that a lot of the leaks are just from early development, it was unrealistic to expect to see anything hyper-polished, but so far the reception has been mixed with some excited for a Wolverine game, and other wondering why the traversal looks a lot like Arkham Asylum.
If anything, I just hope the studio will manage to enhance their cybersecurity so they won’t be able to get attacked like this again.
No release date has been set for Wolverine, but Insomniac’s Spider-Man 2 is now playable for PS5.
