Insomniac released the first Spider-Man game in 2018, followed by the standalone Miles Morales spinoff titled Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales in 2020. Marvel's Spider-Man 2 brings both iconic heroes together in a single-player adventure, although their missions may not be entirely aligned throughout the game.
Although there were initial speculations about the possibility of co-op or multiplayer features in Spider-Man 2, Insomniac Games clarified on Twitter that the game will solely be a single-player experience, dispelling those rumors.
The Spider-Man series has been a massive success for PlayStation, having sold over 33 million copies as of June. With the immense anticipation surrounding Spider-Man 2, it has the potential to become one of the standout games of the year.
As the release date draws closer, fans eagerly await the opportunity to swing through New York City once again as their favorite web-slinger, ready to embark on a thrilling adventure filled with action, suspense, and the beloved Marvel universe.
