A new rumour claims that a Marvel multiplayer game is in the works for PS5, and Insomniac could be making it.

PlayStation 5 owners already have two major Insomniac developed Marvel video games to look forward to in the coming years: the sequel to the 2018 Spider-Man game and a Wolverine title. However, a new rumour suggests the studio could be working on a third project.

Ironically, this rumour comes from the Xbox Era podcast, with insider and co-host Nick Baker, aka Shpeshal, saying he heard from a reliable source that a Marvel multiplayer game is in development for the PlayStation 5.

He says he can’t share all the info he’s received, as it would risk leading back to his source. He also stresses that neither he nor his source know for sure if Insomniac is behind the project and that it is purely speculation on their part.

At first, the idea of Insomniac juggling three games at the same time seems far-fetched. But a couple of months ago, the studio posted job listings specifically for an unannounced multiplayer project.

It didn’t state exactly what kind of multiplayer game it is or if it’s at all Marvel related, but it’s an interesting coincidence to say the least.

Baker added that ‘Sony is obviously all in on Marvel, and Marvel and Disney are clearly all in on Sony,’ which suggests that more major Marvel exclusives could release for the PlayStation 5.

This doesn’t necessarily mean other platforms like Xbox and Nintendo Switch won’t get Marvel games period. Both the upcoming Guardians Of The Galaxy game and Midnight Suns are multi-platform, but there is most definitely a strong relationship between Sony and Marvel.

This is not only evident with the aforementioned Spider-Man 2 and Wolverine games, but Square Enix’s Avengers. Even though it is a multi-platform game, it was announced last year that PlayStation owners would receive exclusive content in the form of a new playable character: Spider-Man.

While there is still no footage of him in action, website MP1st spotted that senior producer Dan Matlack has confirmed, on the official Marvel’s Avengers Discord channel, that Spidey will have his own unique story content and cut scenes.
