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

Take all the time you need, Insomniac. I’ll be there to support when it releases. These devs have earned my trust again and again and again. Sunset Overdrive and Spider Man were both phenomenal.

2021 is not sooner than i think. That would be 3 years after the first one. With assets / movement already in place i would be surprised if it was any later.

Holiday 2021 would have been my guess too. 3 years to make a sequel is more than enough, especially if they're using a lot of the existing city and not starting from scratch on the combat.

Late 2021 would be 3 years after the first (which itself had a very fast development time, IIRC), so that seems fairly reasonable. Sony will probably want it out as quickly as possible too as it would be a massive early boost to PS5 hardware sales.

I hope they don’t rush it because as good as the last game was, it needed more dev time to polish it up a bit.

I hope it's way more polished and doesn't have the "insomniac" feel to its movement mechanics. I don't want to feel like time and inertia resets every time I swing or push. It needs more ragdoll physics on the webs and Spider-Man's weight and it doesn't have to work against the gameplay.

With great sales comes a great fast sequel.
I'm so bummed this is how the industry works.

On paper it makes sense because you're asking the developer to create a similar game without spending 1-2 years fleshing out the foundation and pipeline to make it, but it kinda doesn't make sense to rush sequels given that you expect sequels to be as good but also better than the original.

I've just seen too many sequels and game trilogies where the further it goes the more stripped down it gets whilist technically improving in other areas. Mass Effect 3 still stings, and to be honest Jak 3 and Ratchet & Clank 3 even had their "3" woes.

Spiderman 2 inevitable PS5 bundle is going to destroy NPD charts my god. Sony might even be puzzled because there are so many outstanding games to bundle with. A nice problem to have.

Holiday 2020 with the PS5 is what I'd called "sooner than expected"

Really loved the first, so can't wait for 2. Hope we get
Miles as the protagonist
