Insomniac Games announced at Playstation Showcase 2021 that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 would be coming to PS5.
The title will follow the massively successful Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4 and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales on PS4/PS5, which have sold over 15 million copies and 6.5 million copies worldwide respectively.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will be a PS5 exclusive title, with massively updated graphical and gameplay mechanics taking the game above and beyond what players have already experienced with the first two titles in the series.
Here is everything you need to know about Spider-Man 2, which will be coming out on the Playstation 5:
UPDATE 13th January 2022: Brittney M. Morris, the writer of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales’ prequel novel Wings of Fury, has joined the team at Insomniac Games!
UPDATE 30th November: Questions are being asked about the possible inclusion of Green Goblin in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
UPDATE October 25th 2021: A member of the Insomniac team ‘leaked’ information about some of the suits in-game.
A ‘leaker’ at Insomniac has confirmed some of the suits coming to the game!
Insomniac released a trailer for the new title at Playstation Showcase that featured Spider-Man and Miles Morales working in tandem.
Insomniac also confirmed that Marvel’s Wolverine is being released by the developer, although not much is known at this time about the X-Men game or whether it will follow a similar style as Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
Wolverine will also be a PS5 exclusive, and the exact release date for that title is also likely to be around 2023, following the release of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
It remains to be seen if Spider-Man 2 will also be featured on PC.
The current tentative release date for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is 2023, although Insomniac has not confirmed anything beyond that. There’s a chance that we will see the game come out in time for the holidays in 2023, giving the elusive PS5 a chance to be restocked globally as a holiday present bundle.

With both Peter Parker and Miles Morales working together in the teaser trailer, fans have asked whether we are likely to see a co-op mode in the new game. Insomniac has made no allusions to a two-player mode coming to the game, and it is still believed at this time that Spider-Man 2 will purely be a single-player experience.
UPDATE 30th April 2022: A leaker has made some claims regarding the “switching” mechanic!
UPDATE 3rd January 2022: According to a recent leak, there will apparently be a symbiote variant of every suit in Spider-Man 2!
