Peter Parker and Miles Morales both take centre stage in the new game, with players swapping between the two Spider-Men as they team up to battle villains including Lizard, Kraven the Hunter and Venom.
Asked about the potential for a Venom spin-off game, he said Insomniac will see how fans react to the latest title first.
“So, here’s what we’re doing. We’re focused on Spider-Man 2, and what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna wait to see how the fans react,” he said. “We’re gonna listen to the fans and we’re gonna ask ourselves, ‘Okay, what do the fans really want?'”
“We’ll kind of talk about stuff after we’ve all had time to sleep and take vacations,” he added.
Candyman actor Tony Todd voices the symbiote-fueled Venom in the new game.
“So, we brought Tony in and he submitted a few lines for kind of an audition. And it was like, ‘Oh, my gosh, this is the exact vibe that we’re going for.’ He fits it perfectly,” Paquette said.
He added: “I want this to be one of the best Venom stories you’ve ever experienced. We’ll see what the reviewers have to say.”
The Spider-Man 2 review embargo lifted on Monday and critics have heaped praise on the title, making it one of Insomniac’s highest rated games to date.
“Marvel Spider-Man 2 is an incredibly confident sequel and one of 2023’s best games,” according to VGC’s 5-star review.
As well as continuing to support Spider-Man 2 with new features, Insomniac is working on a Wolverine game for PS5. It will be a standalone title directed by Brian Horton and Cameron Christian, who were the creative leads on Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
The studio is also seemingly working on a third unannounced title.
