An Insomniac Games developer who Marvel’s Wolverine is working on has provided a brief new update on the progress of the project. In addition to announcing Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 last year, Insomniac also disclosed that it was creating a game associated with Wolverine. And while the details on this game have been extremely sparse since it was first shown, it looks like we now have a better idea of how development is progressing.
Today on Twitter, Insomniac’s Mike Yosh shared a new image that seemed to suggest the studio’s current work on Marvel’s Wolverine . Yosh, who is a lead animator at Insomniac, posted a photo of a motion capture studio. Although Marvel’s Wolverine wasn’t specifically mentioned in the image-related caption, the implication was that Insomniac would be doing motion capture work for the game at some point today. No further information has been provided by Yosh in this case, but perhaps we will begin to see more of these behind-the-scenes looks in the future.

The best thing about this update from Yosh is that it tells us that Marvel’s Wolverine actually seems to be pretty far ahead. When the project was first announced, Insomniac also revealed that it was still trying to recruit staff to develop the game. As such, it looked like Marvel’s Wolverine could have been pretty far from release. And while that’s probably still the case, knowing that motion capture works Wolverine now looks like it’s happening is a big sign.
