Insomniac has addressed the speculations about whether Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is still on track for a 2023 release or not. The sequel to 2018’s blockbuster Marvel’s Spider-Man was revealed during the PlayStation Showcase on September in 2021 along with Marvel’s Wolverine.
In a tweet addressed to fans speculating about a potential delay for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, Insomniac stated that the developers are making “good progress” on the game so fans shouldn’t worry and reinstated that the game is still on track for a 2023 release date.
Since the 2021 PlayStation Showcase, Insomniac has been silent about the sequel and provided no information regarding the development of the game. Nothing has been showed about the game since the showcase either. Naturally, fans started speculating about a potential delay but they reassured them as the game is still slated for a 2023 release.
It’s likely that fans won’t have to wait much longer for news regarding the sequel, as a PlayStation Showcase could very well happen by the end of this year. Various events such as D23’s Disney and Marvel Games Showcase as well as another PlayStation’s own State of Play passed but no information about Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 was revealed. The State of Play did feature a new God of War: Ragnarok trailer.
Insomniac released Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered on PC a couple of months ago and is set to release Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales for PC on November 18. It seems like the developers are focusing on releasing their previous Spider-Man games on PC while also working on Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 simultaneously.
Waiting for the sequel is hard but fans can rest easy knowing that Insomniac Games is hard at work on Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. As the developers stated, showing games take time, effort, resources, and a great deal of coordination. Insomniac Games will show off the sequel when they feel they’re ready to do so as they do not want to disappoint the fans with an unpolished trailer.
About Marvel’s Spiderman: Miles Morales
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a 2020 action-adventure game developed by Insomniac Games and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for the PS4 and PS5. Based on the Marvel Comics superhero Miles Morales, it is inspired by both the character’s almost decade-long comic book mythology and the 2018 animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which helped to popularize him.
The game is the second installment in Marvel’s Spider-Man series, following Marvel’s Spider-Man (2018), and depicts Miles’ struggle to balance the duties of his civilian persona and Spider-Man when his new home, Harlem, is threatened by a war between the Roxxon Energy Corporation and the Tinkerer’s high-tech criminal army, the Underground.
