Announcement and Teaser Trailer
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 was first announced in September 2021 during a PlayStation Showcase live stream . The announcement trailer revealed that both Peter Parker and Miles Morales will be playable characters, with the villains Venom and Kraven the Hunter confirmed as antagonists. This teaser understandably got Spidey fans very excited for the sequel. However, no firm release date was provided yet.
Estimated Release Window
While Insomniac Games has not announced an exact launch date, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is estimated to release sometime in 2023 based on statements from the developers.
In an interview last year , Bryan Intihar, creative director of the game, stated that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is slated to launch sometime in the 2023 fiscal year. Since PlayStation’s fiscal year runs from April to March, this points to the sequel releasing between early 2023 and March 2024.
The teaser trailer’s description also indicates a 2023 release, claiming the game is “coming exclusively to PlayStation 5 in 2023.” So while not confirmed, all signs point to Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 releasing at some stage in 2023.
What to Expect
When it does arrive, Spider-Man fans can expect Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 to build on everything that made its 2018 predecessor such a hit. The core web-swinging traversal and combat mechanics are expected to return with refinements based on fan feedback.
The ability to freely explore Marvel’s rendition of New York City and complete missions as both Peter Parker and Miles Morales should also help the sequel stand out. Iconic Spider-Man villains like Venom and Kraven will provide challenging fights for our heroes. Overall, Spider-Man 2 aims to be bigger, bolder and more narratively ambitious than the first game.
While an exact date is still to be determined, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 can reasonably be expected to release at some point in 2023 exclusively for PlayStation 5 consoles. The sequel plans to expand on the much-loved gameplay foundations of its predecessor while introducing new villains, characters and story depth. All signs point to Spider-Man 2 swinging onto PS5 sometime next year, much to the delight of fans everywhere. Be sure to check for updates as an official launch date nears!
