Spider-Man 2 is ‘still slated for 2023’ and making ‘good progress’, Insomniac says
“Showing games takes time, effort, resources and coordination”, the studio explains
Spider-Man 2 is still slated for release in 2023, Insomniac Games has reaffirmed.
The official Insomniac Twitter account replied to a thread in which fans were speculating about why the game hadn’t received a second trailer since it was originally announced.
After some expressed concern that the game wouldn’t make its planned 2023 release, Insomniac stepped in to assuage their fears.
“Don’t [worry],” it said. “We’re making good progress and it’s slated for 2023. Showing games takes time, effort, resources and coordination.”
Developed by Insomniac Games, Spider-Man 2 is coming exclusively to PS5 in 2023. Bill Rosemann, vice president of creative at Marvel Games, has described it as “everything you love” about the first game and Spider-Man: Miles Morales “but more”.
“There are multiple foes. I can say the story very much continues and picks up from Marvel’s Spider-Man to Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales,” he said last year.
“I don’t want to reveal too much but it’s the next big chapter, there are a lot of threads, a lot of characters that were in the first two games that you’ll see here.”
Insomniac Games is also working on a Wolverine game for PS5. According to the studio, the game will be a standalone title directed by Brian Horton and Cameron Christian, who were the creative leads on Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
“Even though Marvel’s Wolverine is very early in development, from what I’ve seen of its emotional narrative and cutting-edge gameplay, the team is already creating something truly special,” said Insomniac’s head of franchise strategy Ryan Schneider.
