Marvel’s Spider-Man for PS4 and its later PS5/PC upgrades are among some of the most revered PlayStation games of the modern era. And, along with the spin-off/sequel Miles Morales, they are without debate, some of the best superhero titles of all time. So no doubt we were getting a sequel after developer Insomniac knocked it out of the park.
However, we haven’t gotten a whole lot of news from them since it was announced a couple of years ago. Even now, the news that the game would be arriving this September didn’t come from any official marketing source but rather, it came from the voice actor behind Venom, a featured foe in Spider-Man 2.
Tony Todd, who voices Venom in the upcoming game, took to Twitter to announce the news that Spider-Man 2 would be coming in September with a massive focus on marketing beginning over the summer. But, it seems this news may have been a bit premature as Todd has since taken the Tweet down. This isn’t surprising, considering we haven’t heard anything concrete from the development or publishing teams, let alone anyone at Sony.
Despite Todd’s claims that the game would arrive in September, it seems he jumped the gun before it was made official. That said, we already knew the game was targeted for a fall 2023 release, we just didn’t know exactly when. And while it’s likely the date will be announced soon by Insomniac or PlayStation Studios, until that happens, we suggest not banking on September, or at least not just yet.
No word on whether this release window includes a simultaneous PC release as the PlayStation 5 but don’t get your hopes up on that either. Sony will undoubtedly have a brief window of the title being a PlayStation exclusive before letting it go on PC via Steam as it did with the remaster and Morales.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will release exclusively for the PlayStation 5 and is like to come to PC via Steam, just like its predecessors, at some point. Sony hasn’t confirmed that just yet, but we know its day will eventually come.
