The game is under development at Raven Software and will be released on PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, Wii, Nintendo DS and PSP.

"We have an amazing team with Raven Studios at the helm, creating what will undoubtedly be the quintessential, true-to-character Wolverine video game experience that fans have been craving," said Rob Kostich, vice president, global brand management, Activision Publishing, Inc. "X-Men Origins: Wolverine amps up the action by bringing to life Wolverine’s wholly unique skills such as his brute strength, regenerative mutant abilities, and indestructible adamantium claws and skeleton in an immersive experience that is fitting to one of the most enduring and popular characters of all time."

X-Men Origins: Wolverine is an action-adventure set in a variety of vivid real-world locales, challenging players to hone their animal instinct as they uncover hidden dangers, hunt and destroy enemies. A short trip to Wolverine’s tragic past is aprt of the deal as well

Needless to say, May is also the month reserved for the global debut of Twentieth Century Fox’s latest X-Men film.
