Marvel’s Wolverine Story Lead Leaves Sony For CD Projekt Red

Former Marvel’s Wolverine story lead Mary Kenney has parted ways with Sony to work with Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher developer CD Projekt Red. Insomniac Games is currently working on its next major Marvel project after making three Marvel’s Spider-Man titles. However, it seems like Marvel’s Wolverine will lose its story lead.

Mary Kenney joined Insomniac Games back in 2019 where she worked as a writer on 2020’s Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and 2021’s Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. She was later promoted to story lead on Marvel’s Wolverine, though her career has changed trajectories as she’s now working with CD Projekt Red on an RPG, which is either the Cyberpunk 2077 sequel or The Witcher 4.

As reported by PlayStation LifeStyle, Mary Kenney updated her LinkedIn profile recently to mention, “Today was my first day as a senior writer at CD Projekt RED … I can’t wait to talk more about my project, I’m thrilled to be getting back into RPGs, and my team is talented, welcoming, and just flat-out cool.”

Coincidentally, just three months earlier, Marvel’s Wolverine art director Aaron Habibipour also left Insomniac Games to join CD Projekt Red, where he’s now working on the Cyberpunk 2077 sequel codenamed Project Orion. It’s likely that Kenney followed Habibipour to the sequel as well, though that’s just speculation on our part since she didn’t mention which project she’d be involved in.

Marvel’s Wolverine was revealed almost three years ago with a short cinematic trailer showing the titular mutant sitting at a pub. The game was one of many in-development titles leaked during the massive Insomniac Games hack last year which laid out the studio’s plans to develop numerous Marvel projects including a spin-off Venom game and Marvel’s X-Men. Sony is banking heavily on Insomniac Games to become its primary Marvel properties developer, which is sad news for fans hoping that the company would return to Resistance one day.
