This confirmation of this tone opens up possibilities for where the game could go. One of the aspects that many fans want to see captured in this new wolverine The game is the brutality of Logan’s claws. Wolverine’s claws are lethal weapons that most fans feel can only be possessed through more violent interpretations of his character.

It is quite possible that based on these comments the game may get an M-rating before release, although this is purely speculation.

In comparison, the last two Spider Man The game was rated T for Teen by Insomniac, despite touching on some subject matter that could qualify for an M-rating. The last superhero game to receive an M-rating was Batman: Arkham Knight by Rocksteady in 2015, while the last Marvel Comics game to receive an M-rating dead pool in 2013. The possibility that the game might get an M-rating also makes it possible that some of the more mature wolverine Comic book stories can also be adapted.
