Considering the failure of Marvel’s Avengers, Insomniac Games may be the only hope we have left of another standalone Deadpool game. This not only makes sense, but everything is within the reach to make it possible.
Suda51 already expressed interested in making a Deadpool game. Let him do it. Insomniac can instead try out a new IP after Wolverine.
Insomniac and Sony must not become Marvel s library of superhero games......i dont like superheroes and many like me are nt fan of them outside US 1 - 2 Spiderman games are enough for variety , we dont need more ..Sony should stick to its Japanese side that made them successful ....on PS1 or PS2 none bought Spidermans and Wolverines, fans loved PS for MGS , Monster Hunter, Final Fantasy , JRPGS Japanese horror (RE,Silent hill ,Dino crisis) etcetc
Pretty sure even people outside the us like them. I live outside the US and all my friends love them. Sony/MS still have rpg. They just third party. Why does it have to be first party?
What are you on about fella? Insomniac has the talent of making top-tier games, so why shouldn't they utilize it to the fullest? Insomniac's Spider-Man is one of the most fun games I've played in a while, not to mention the title's immense fan following. They'll prove themselves again with Wolverine (hopefully) and a Deadpool game too would be outright amazing, given the versatility of the character.
Sony should stick to it’s Japanese side? Well I do agree they should lean more on that, but what does that have to do with an American ran, created dev studio like Insomniac that has always created western games? You listed nothing but third party studios that are still, for the most, making those games. Also, Spider-Man popularity is huge worldwide, even in Japan
Complete nonsense. You are not the world or represent others. Spider-Man game sales alone on one platform prove your statement to be false. The Marvel and DC movie ticket sales worldwide prove that your statements are false. There are so many characters with interesting powers and stories from comic books that can be told. Every game you mentioned is 3rd party. Sony and Insomniac can do both original IPs and super hero games and already are as Ratchet and Clank is not a super hero game. Asobi Studio build up proves that Sony is still making Japanese games. Gamers actually want Marvel and DC games. Come back when you actually have truthful statements Donald.
Thank God they don't listen to what you think. This is an extremely dumb statement especially when everything you listed was third party. If they want to keep making superhero games. Let them. They are excellent for that.
I'm pretty certain that people outside the United States like Marvel Studios' characters.
That’s a pretty bold statement about why people loved PS1 and PS2, especially PS2 when we started seeing games like God of War and GTA 3,,,
Ummm.... You do know that Sony has more than one studio, right? And you do know that Insomniac has never made Japanese games, yeah? What's interesting to me is the fact that you don't like superheroes. Fair enough, but I fail to see how that in itself makes a game less interesting. If Horizon: Zero Dawn played exactly the same but it was a Hawkeye/Green Arrow game, is it suddenly uninteresting to you?
Yes i agree , super hero movies are an old and tired thing i’m sick of them and sick of Disney and Marvel movies are getting worse and it’s going to continue getting worse and worse they have oficially became a factory machine. However .. video games are an entirely different thing especially when they have studios like Insomniac working behind them. It’s just good fun and i can’t wait to see Wolverine.
Japan doesn't buy Sony games, they're a Nintendo market. All of their success is attributed to the overseas market that's why they've been transitioning away from Japan for quite some time. That's why many of their PlayStation execs are no longer Japanese but foreigners. Also just because you aren't a fan doesn't equal the world, I know shocking right?
"We" are fine with more superhero games. If you don't want 'em, don't buy 'em.
You're delusional buddy.
Who are you to speak on behalf of those outside of the US? I am not from the States and I can assure you that the Marvel games or any other Superheroes games, even on mobile, are very popular in my country. Those japanese games that you have mentioned are mostly 3rd party developers. Insomniac is a 1st party developer and does not own most of those IP. Sony however can continue to collaborate with them to develop those games.
oh @sonic-and-crash how silly you look right now.
So they should just make the games you personally like and want? What about me and many like me that dont care for "its Japanese side"? Sony should make the games that sell like crazy and if those games happen to be Super Hero games then that's what they should make, pretty sure they'll still make other games too.
Let them finish Spiderman 2 and Wolverine before another Marvel character gets thrown in. If there is a Deadpool game after that I wouldn't mind a Black Panther game. I wish DC would cough up a character and let Insomniac go to town with that character.
Insomniac making a game on a DC character would be fucking massive. It would definitely raise the bar set by RockSteady Studios for the Batman games.
A Green Lantern game similar in style to Mass Effect would be awesome.
I doubt that Insomniac Games would ever capitalise on a DC Comics character. PlayStation Studios owns Insomniac Games and Sony Interactive Entertainment own Spider-Man, which is a part of Marvel Studios. It's unlikely that DC Comics will ever side with a company that's already associated with its biggest competitor. This isn't Epic Games here!
You all need to stop thinking that companies says locked in fanboy fights. If DC can see tangible benefits, they would explore.
Hell yes, please. Insomniac Games is one gem of a developer.
That's just what we need, more Xbox players complaining. Not sure why they are complaining about Playstation getting supposedly garbage games but here we are.
What has this got to do with Xbox and PlayStation?
When Wolverine got announced there were a few articles complaining about it being a PS5 exclusive.
That Wolverine complaining article was just bait to get some hits and people fell for it hook line and sinker.
You can say the same thing about majority of the articles.
Yes please! And a Hulk one while they're at it.
I disagree. Not because they couldn’t do it and it wouldn’t be dope but because they have their own IPs to work on. We need to avoid burning out the good studios like insomniac or rocksteady on commercial IP. Rocksteady deserves their own properties. Spidey and Wolverine are good properties. Batman was a good property. Top 5 easy in terms of character and villains. That’s good enough.
Not sure why commercial IPs are suddenly a bad thing. Insomniac had a choice and they chose to work on Spider-Man. As long as the games are great, I see no difference between "commercial" IP and an original one. Given their success so far, I wouldn't be surprised if Insomniac expanded into a third studio at some point.
Because it's a waste of potential. I wouldn't like to see a creative studio like Insomniac being constantly bound by other people's creations and I wouldn't want to their games to become formulaic like you see with the majority of AAA studios that unlike Insomniac seem incapable of getting out of their confort zone and tackle different genres.
We don't even know what the Wolverine game is going to be like. It could be a Last of Us type of game. Dark story driven game with linear progression. It's way too early to call anything formulaic. Spider-Man has literally been the game fans have been waiting for since Spider-Man 2 came out like a decade earlier. They did such a great job with it, I just can't see why it's wasted potential. I understand people might not be Spider-man fans and would love to see something new from them but absolutely nothing guarantees that what comes next is going to be as interesting. They are giving the fans of the franchise everything they want. Would I love to see another Sunset Overdrive or a Ratchet game, hell yeah I would but as long as they are putting out a quality product claims of wasted potential are really nothing more than people being excited about a possibility of something unknown.
They aren’t bad, that isn’t what I said at all. I’m saying insomniac is a good studio with their own IPs. If you keep throwing licensed shit at them their original IPs go back on the shelf. Spider-Man and Wolverine are two solid franchises for them. They can handle that and their own IP. Don’t you want to see what rocksteady could make on their own? What worlds they could build? I was kinda bummed when they announced that justice league shit. The game could be great but it’s just a waste to me. Not one studio deserves their own property more than rocksteady. They could keep Batman and alternate with their own IP.
I can see where you're coming from here. Revisit a hero and villain set that has been around forever and a day... how many times can the stories be rehashed without an audience saying "enough is enough"? This problem is true within the movie industry as well. But if a quality Dev can crank out quality products, why stop? Who are we to judge? They'll know when to rein it in refocus.
Still a waste of potential to me even if it’s not a waste to them on their way to the bank. I didn’t think miles morales has the same magic as the first Spider-Man. Wait until it’s Spider-Man 5 by insomniac. Sure they will make money but I bet they’ll be burned out and losing talent. Then it’s just a shell of what used to be insomniac.
@ sourOG I don't think Insomniac will fall into that category of empty shell. They've been pumping out R&C games since the PS2. And for the most part, they're all exceptional. Especially the latest release!
It can happen to any studio brother lol. Did you ever think BioWare would put out a game like andromeda?
This article tries to hard...the initial premise is that because a multi hero game didn't perform well, only one company is our hope for producing a solo hero game.
I would prefer they give up on comic book games after Wolverine. Comics have some of the cheesiest characters and stories in media.
No 2 marvel games is bordering on too many. I'm excited but I don't want insomniac to become the studio that only makes marvel things. I want them to be able to work on things they want to too.
I wouldn’t want a Deadpool ip from Insomniac. Not to sound like a fuddy-duddy, but Deadpool is OTT vulgar and crass. I’m not saying they couldn’t create a fantastic experience, but it would be pretty inconsistent with what Insomniac has ever produced. That said, I would love to see Insomniac create a Punisher game! Does anyone remember Overstrike?! It later became the failed “Fuse” via EA’s genus overbearing governance. Look it up. Sony needs to get the ip rights back.
Oh hells tea
Can we relax on the Marvel games?
Sigh…. Just milk the whole f**ing superhero list at this point DC, Marvel all of it: 6 more Spider-Mans, Wonder Woman, green lantern, black panther, hulk, thing, captain America, Rogue, silver Surfer, aqua man… there. That should get us thru the 2020s decade release schedule. The rest of us will just hope and pray something original and new manages to slip thru..:. Like a tuft or grass growing in the cracks of a superhero paved highway
Or enough with the super heroes games.
They did already. It's called sunset overdrive. 😂
I think Insomniac needs to focus on the next 2 projects first. Plus do we only want them doing Marvel games from now on?
Insomniac aren't the only talented devs who could do it
My DREAM would be if Insomniac made a full out X-Men game. Like 90's X-Men Animated Series era.. IMAGINE the possibilities! It's finally time for X-Men to have a comeback! Starting with Wolverine :) Maybe they could do a different X-Men character each game that culminates in a full out X-Men game or something. That or a Buffy game and I could die happy.
Any competent developer can work on a Deadpool game. Keep it away from Ubi, Acti, Square and SEGA
Has anyone asked Insomniac Games how they feel about making Marvel games? Y'all throwing things at them as if they want to be known as the Marvel Developer from now on
