Marvel's Spider-Man is one of the PlayStation 4 best-selling games with over 13.2 million units sold through July 28, 2019.

Former Game Informer Senior Editor Imran Khan speaking on the Kinda Funny podcast revealed he has heard from sources that a sequel could launch as early as 2021, with it possibly being Sony's big 2021 holiday title for the PlayStation 5. 

A sequel to the game would be one of the most highly anticipated titles coming to the PlayStation 5.

"As soon as", game came out in 2018, 2021 is a 3 year development cycle of a gameplay and engine already made. Games like that used to come out every 2 years. :P

Yep. Insomniac has always been good at pumping out sequels.

If they can't make it a launch title then yes a holiday 2021 would be a great time to release it.

Currently on my 2nd play-through. Still holds up extremely well. But I do think there are some improvements and additions that can be made. Like an expanded combat system, more side quests, and digging deeper into Spidey's rogue gallery: Some returning ones like Shocker and Tombstone, ones that were planted in the first game like Wraith (she's technically an antihero, but the potential for a Wraith storyline here is too good to see ass up in by view), and new ones like Mysterio, Green Goblin (obviously), Venom (and possibly Carnage), and Sandman.

Also: A playable Miles Morales/Spider-Man alongside Peter Parker.

Feels like they're rushing it a bit. While a 3 year dev cycle is pretty common within a generation, 2021 is next gen. Many devs add an extra year to their dev cycle during a generational change, in order to redo their engine with next gen graphics tech and features. I worry that a 2021 release will mean that it will be a cross-gen game built on the same build of the engine as the first game, rather than a PS5 only game with a next-gen engine. Horizon Zero Dawn 2 makes alot more sense for 2021 than Spider-Man 2 does imo, they've had since early 2017 to work on it, ample time. Spider-Man 2 and God of War 5 should both probably be 2022 titles.

The games should release when they're ready. On top of that, Sony is hardly the company I'm worried will release too many cross gen titles.

I'm sure Spider-Man will be fine.

The first game had some great mechanics, but lacked content and the boss battles were disappointing. I wonder which direction they'll take the sequel.
