Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Release Window Possibly Revealed (VIDEO)
The immense success of Marvel’s Spider-Man was difficult to ignore over the last year, with acclaim from players and critics as well as the release of oodles of add-on content–much of it free of charge. With the lunch of a Game of the Year edition, Insomniac Games’ comic book adaptation would cement the title as one of PlayStation 4’s most prominent properties, with Sony since putting a ring on it and Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 all-but-assured to be coming down the line.
That said, it appears we may be getting a web-slinging follow-up much sooner than expected, as suggested by former Game Informer Senior Editor Imran Khan. According to his appearance on the Kinda Funny Gamecast (via Prima Games), the amazing arachnid’s next adventure could arrive in “Christmas 2021″–just two years from now at the time of writing. “I know too much about this, so I can’t speculate too much,” Khan admitted. “I think a Spider-Man 2 will come sooner than we think.” Check out the exchange in the video below starting at 1:40:14.
Rumors have hinted at Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 in the past, with Insomniac seemingly teasing the game’s development and even a possible villain being saved for the anticipated follow-up. In Khan’s own speculation, Insomniac is said to have likely begun work on a sequel “immediately,” especially considering the Spidey title very quickly set sales records against the likes of another juggernaut blockbuster in Santa Monica Studio’s God of War. With the web-head also prominently featured in PlayStation 5 showcases, it appears Sony may additionally have the web-head in mind for next-gen purposes.
Marvel’s Spider-Man is available now for PlayStation 4.
