Insomniac back on development duties.
Insomnaic Games has gone full superhero; not only is it working on a new Wolverine-themed adventure, it’s revisiting some old friends in the newly announced Spider-Man 2, due in 2023.
There’s not a huge amount to report as far as Spider-Man 2 goes just yet, but Sony’s newly revealed cinematic trailer does offer a few tantalising teases of things to come. For starters, it looks like we’ll be getting a double helping of Spidey in the numbered sequel, with both Miles Morales and Peter Parker joining forces to battle against Venom.
Insomnic’s original crack at Spider-Man, released in 2018, bought bags of web-swinging fun to the gorgeously realised streets of Manhattan, and its 2020 standalone expansion, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, was equally sharp, meaning expectations will be high for this sequel.
Sony lists Spider-Man 2 for release on PS5, but it’s unclear if, as with Insomniac’s previous Spidey efforts, it’ll be making its way to PS4 too. I’ll update the story if I hear more.
