Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Swings Onto PlayStation 5 Next Autumn

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is heading for an Autumn release window, as confirmed by developer Insomniac.

That said, there have been rumblings for a while that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 was getting a late 2023 release. While it’s since been removed, one Insomniac writer reportedly posted the release window on their personal website. And now, via the PlayStation Blog, Insomniac has stated that yes, it’s heading for a fall/autumn release.

The developer has, for the most, remained tight-lipped about what the Marvel’s Spider-Man sequel will offer. Given that New York is Spider-Man’s home turf, you can expect to see some familiar sights, though it’s likely the map may be a little bigger than last time. We’re hoping we can swing over to the Statue of Liberty in the sequel which – officially – is off limits in Marvel’s Spider-Man. 

We’ve only had the one trailer so but it’s been confirmed that Venom will be one of the big bads. And, going by the narration, Kraven the Hunter will be putting in an appearance. With two Spider-Men – Peter Parker and Miles Morales – it seems reasonable that you’ll get to play as both.

We’re certainly looking forward to this web-swinging sequel, given how much we loved the original. In our review of the PS4 version we called it “…the best that a Spider-Man game has ever been”. Yes, even though there’s no Bruce Campbell in it. The game has since come to the PlayStation 5 and PC, along with stand-alone expansion Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

So, we’ll have to wait a while for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, exclusive to the PlayStation 5. Hopefully Sony will have sorted out their console supply issues by then. In the meantime, you can get the original PS4 version for at least 50% off on the PlayStation Store.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
