2 things I want

1. No relationship drama please, it was bad in the first one just let them be a happy couple
2. No fucking Superior but who am I kidding that will totally be the tease going into the 3rd one

How would that even work? That would be so weird for the 3rd game to do Superior considering what that all involves. I think we might get Carnage, would be awesome to get a new Maximum Carnage type game due to what's hinted to come in the 2nd one.

Can we play as Gwen or Miles?

No. Of course they'll hit their limits on PS5 as well. But a 2021/2022 game shouldn't be held held back by 2013 hardware (and not even top-of-the-line hardware for it's time either).

This is pretty interesting. The SSD alone will be a game-changer when it comes to game design.

Indeed. From 20MB/s cap for the bandwidth of streaming system to who knows what. I can't begin to imagine what Insomniac will attain.

seems like people in this thread didn't even think the second game will be quite different from the first game since it's on a new tech, it's not just a sequel on the same platform, it's a jump in technology and that mean way more time to develop a game.

Imagine if they use the PS5 Tech to give the NPCs in the city more than three different pairs of shoes.

I'm not sure why "3 years after the first game" qualifies as sooner than expected. That seems to be a pretty common turnaround time for open-world games.

Well you're probably going to play as miles in the second game but Gwen is presumably dead as shit and they're probably not going to get into universe hopping yet

I love it when timing happens like this. I played Spider-Man last year when it released, loved it, haven't touched it since. Over the holiday I felt like re-playing it, I'm about halfway through and loving it as much as I did the first time, and was just wondering if they'd announce a sequel at E3 or the PS5 unveiling event or whatever. Unofficial rumor, hey, good enough.

October 2021 isn't earlier than I expected, as they already have the engine in place and overall game design. Just have to make a new story/enemies/locations plus some minor gameplay changes and 3 years seems enough time for that.

Sounds about right! Can't wait.

They have a lot of options too, which is super exciting. I hope they don't throw too much in at once though. Focus on green goblin for two and further tease Venom at the end. Maybe even give spidey the symbiote suit at the end. Three can be all venom. Give these iconic villians room to shine.

So what villains are we all hoping for this time around?

Either Green Goblin or Venom for the main villain seems natural, and can’t wait to see Insomniac’s take on both of them!

As for side villains, I would love to see Spot, Mysterio, Lizard, Sandman, and Kraven

3 years after launch of the original is nowhere near "sooner" than you think lol. He probably doesn't know much and it's just speculating.

Still, 2021 would make it a PS5 launch year title. (Nov 2020 thru Nov 2021) Not bad to me.

2020 would be amazing.

It's exactly the time frame I'd expect. The term "sooner" is being used because this gen people think the industry standard to develop a game should be 5-8 years.

Here is my take. P5 is the main platform with a P4 Pro version. They could make the last-gen version digital-only or something to not confuse customers and to push the Pro. No baseline PS4 version though. I want a leap.
Wat. You either want a leap or you want a crossgen game, you can't have both. The CPU in Pro and base PS4 is (almost) the same shitty Jaguar, so you aren't getting any leap by arbitrarily cutting out base PS4.

I really hope they don't diverge to much from what made the first game so great. Please Oatu just let the game be focused on Spidey with no tacked on gimmick like the symbiote or even a playable Venom.

Am I losing it or is this a 250-post thread going off an offhand podcast comment where the very person who made it showed up and clarified it was personal speculation and not a scoop/rumor not ten posts in

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!
Spiderman has been able to glide in the past, so it's something that wouldn't be too far fetched. A jetpack ain't happening though.
