Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Marvel’s Wolverine were two projects that Insomniac Games announced at the PlayStation Showcase in September 2021. Both projects have been put on hold, but thanks to an unusual source, it appears fans now know when to anticipate the upcoming installment of Insomniac’s web-slinging franchise.
Spider-Man 2 “can’t come soon enough,” a fan had stated. Tony Todd, who plays Venom, responded by saying, “Looks like September!” With Bethesda’s upcoming Starfield, that window would put Peter Parker and Miles Morales in their crosshairs.
Many people view the lineup of exclusive games coming to PlayStation and Xbox as an ongoing “console war,” even though it’s a somewhat outmoded idea in 2023. It makes sense from a business perspective that Sony and Microsoft are constantly working to develop exclusive content that will persuade players to choose a side.
Microsoft has been actively pursuing studios like Activision-Blizzard or Bethesda, whose spiritual successor to The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim – in space – launches exclusively on PC and the Xbox Series X/S on September 6. This is happening as Sony buys developers like Bungie. This might not be a completely secure bet any longer if Todd’s tweet is accurate.
The June 2022 Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, which featured games “targeted to launch in the next 12 months,” featured Starfield’s first significant gameplay. Prior to being postponed to an ambiguous window in 2023, Starfield was initially scheduled to release on November 11, 2022. The June showcase gave the impression that it would be available in the first half of this year, but Bethesda’s September 6 announcement meant that the space exploration game had passed the 12-month mark.
Even though Insomniac Games failed to provide any information regarding Marvel’s Spider-Man 2’s release window beyond fall 2023 in a PlayStation Blog post from December 2022, Tony Todd’s tweet suggests it is still possible for the game to receive a significant marketing push.
Holding off on info dumps until the last month has advantages, as it increases the likelihood that fans will get their hands on Spider-Man 2 without a lot of trailers revealing important plot details. September seems like a good time for the PS5 to get its next big exclusive before Insomniac Games devotes all of its attention to Wolverine, though the word of one voice actor should be taken with a grain of salt.
