Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 was announced back in September 2021 for the PS5, and right now, only the PS5. At the time, it was given a 2023 release window. Since then, we’ve heard nothing about the sequel nor have we seen anything beyond the reveal trailer that accompanied the September 2021 announcement. That said, with rumors circulating that a major PlayStation State of Play is happening next month in March, there’s been scuttlebutt whether or not the Spidey sequel will rear its head. To this end, prominent industry insider and leaker, Tom Henderson, relays word that it’s unlikely the game will reappear anytime soon.
Over on Twitter, Henderson notes he doesn’t think we’ll see anything on “Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 until the latter half of the year,” which is to say, sometime between July and the start of 2023. It’s unclear how much of this is speculation versus based on what he’s heard. There’s a chance it’s a mixture of both. Nonetheless, take it with a grain of salt, like you would any unofficial information.
Unfortunately, this is the extent of the report for Spider-Man fans. However, Henderson does name-drop Marvel’s Wolverine, which is also in development at Insomniac Games. Henderson makes the same claim about the new Wolverine game though, which is that PlayStation fans shouldn’t expect to hear about it until the latter half of the year at the earliest.
At the moment of publishing, none of the implicated parties — PlayStation and Insomniac Games — have addressed this report and speculation in any capacity, nor has anyone involved with either party. We don’t expect this to change for a variety of reasons, but if it does, we will be sure to update the story accordingly.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is in development for the PS5 and slated to release sometime in 2023.
