Update: Insomniac Games says there’s no official “timeframe” for release
The untitled PlayStation 4 exclusive Spider-Man game by Insomniac Games looks promising. For years, Marvel video games have been lackluster, and some would even say cash-ins. But this new Spider-Man game looks to be different. According to vice president and executive editor of Marvel Digital Media Ryan Penagos, we’ll get to see this game prove itself in 2017.
Reddit user GamingSince95 captured the livestream of Penagos talking about Marvel’s video game involvement. He said, “There’s even more on the horizon for 2017 like Spider-Man coming to PlayStation 4 and Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC.”
The title was shown off at E3 last year, but details since then have been slim, including a release date. We know now that it will be sometime this year, likely late in the year. We also know the game will feature its own original story, unrelated to the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming movie.
A description of the game reads: “From traversing with parkour and utilizing the environment, to new combat and blockbuster set pieces, it’s Spider-Man unlike any you’ve played before.”
Insomniac is known for the Ratchet and Clank series and the untitled Spider-Man game is their first time working on a licensed game.
