We just heard the news that Sony and Insomniac Games’ collaboration will be bringing Marvel’s Wolverine to the PlayStation 5 console. And now we have a confirmation that the next chapter in Sony and Insomniac Games’ wildly successful web-slinging franchise will soon be here.
Sony has just officially announced Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 at its big PlayStation Showcase. Though we don’t get to see much in the game’s teaser, we got to see both Peter Parker and Miles Morales, as well as who the big bad guy will be, and guess what, Venom is back!
Another important detail released by the Insomniac is that their new Spider-Man installment is going to be a PS5 exclusive. So, finally, Sony is moving ahead of its PS4-PS5 cross-gen.
While pushing the capabilities of the console will be very exciting, we’ve equally pumped to craft all-new stories for Peter and Miles in this sequel. Just as in our previous Spider-Man games, we not only want to tell a great Super Hero story but also deliver a compelling human story, one full of heart and humor that dives deep into the people behind the mask.
Much of the development team that brought you Marvel’s Spider-Man is returning to produce Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, including Bryan Intihar (creative director) and Ryan Smith (game director). Today’s game footage trailer is merely just a glimpse at what’s in store in terms of the new abilities our heroes will acquire, suits they will wear (more on that some other time), and the villains that will try to hunt them down. And speaking of villains, did you catch that final line at the end of the trailer? We’re so happy to announce that Tony Todd (of Candyman fame) will be voicing the symbiote-fueled Venom in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. We’re also delighted to welcome back Yuri Lowenthal and Nadji Jeter, who will reprise their roles as Peter and Miles respectively. We’ve been fortunate to work with so many incredibly talented actors in our Spider-Man games, and Tony has been such a wonderful addition to the cast.
Spider-Man 2 swings onto PS5 sometime in 2023.
