Rumor: Marvel's Spider-Man 2 Will Come Sooner Than We Think

That's actually really believable given how much the first game is being used to promote the PS5.

IE;The Load times demo with Marvel New York from the first game.

EDIT : That, just in the Span of a year alone, Spider-Man PS4 is already one of Sony's biggest first party exclusives in history, and Spidey's kinda in a renaissance of content in other media as well.

To be honest, 3 years for an open world sequel doesn't seem that much faster than I would have expected.

The "sooner than we think" was speculation. It was specifically about how Andy and Fran were saying they expect it later. I expect it around 2021 or so.

Late 2020 for the next Ratchet & Clank (PS5 launch title) and late 2021 for Spidey 2. Perfic. I was expecting 2021 for Spidey.

2021 is actually what most ppl assumed is it not? Hell I’ve seen ppl say 2020 because of how efficient insomniac are

Lmao what a bunch of nothing. “I can’t say shit but I promise the game is coming.... exactly when you expect it to.”

I always thought it was a lock for first year of the PS5. They make games quick over there.

I mean, that's about what I expected really. Aimed for later half of 2021, possibly bumped to early 2022 if needed.

Yeah, that'd be right on time if I were to guess, especially considering they've already got their New York there.

Hope they give my Spider-Hombre a jetpack option. The swinging was completely dull, slow and boring for me. Make him more like Batman where you glide around at least. Also improve the controls and you have a golden game!

Take your time Insomniac. Please don't rush it out and do everything you want with the game.

If they’re also working on R&C for launch then I’d say 2021 is sooner than you would think

If he truly knows more than what he is letting on, you better believe he’s being super coy about what he can and can’t let slip. In any case, after how the game ended, Spider-Man 2 is going to be insane.

Holiday 2021 is 3 years after the first one. Its kinda normal and expected and not really "sooner then you think" imo.

Holiday 2021 isn’t sooner than my expectations.
I clicked expecting it to be a PS5 launch game, which would have truly surprised me.

Most people would expect it by then, maybe first quarter '22 at the latest.
It‘ll be interesting how much they modify the open world formula. It was VERY old fashioned to the point where it would have been much more criticized had it come from more veteran open world devs. Don‘t know if a sequel gets a pass in that area if they change too little.

I definitely can see this. Insomniac have always been pretty damn efficient, and they obviously have a good foundation in place. My biggest hope is that they make the world more interesting this time around. The open world elements (outside of the general awesomeness of web slinging) were a slog.

Iirc, Spiderman took a little more than 3 years to make. So Holiday 2021 makes sense to me

Insomniac has always been a very efficient developer.

Sunset Overdrive released Oct 2014, almost one year after the Xbox One. I can definitely see them getting Spider-Man 2 out one year into the PS5's life.

I hope they manage to include every single street this time instead of skipping four or five as one. I was a little sad to see my older street in Manhattan not included, even as a number. Lol

I would love to see it holiday 2021, 3 years later. If somehow it made PS5 launch, OMG but i doubt it.

I wish they’d make a new R/C for PS5
