Read details on the game via PlayStation Blog below:

Everyone at Insomniac Games is thrilled to announce that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will launch on Friday, October 20th, 2023, only on PlayStation 5. After the amazing fan reception for Marvel’s Spider-Man in 2018 and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales in 2020, the team has worked tirelessly over the past few years to make this third installment in the franchise the sequel you have been waiting for. Built from the ground up for PlayStation 5 console, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will unlock the power of the console with better visuals, faster web swinging (and web wings!), 3D Audio*, and near-instant character switching. We speak for all our collaborators and friends at PlayStation and Marvel Games, when we say that we cannot wait for you to get your hands on this incredible single-player open-world experience.

*3D Audio via built-in TV speakers or analogue/USB stereo headphones.

In Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, players will get to experience Marvel’s New York as both Peter Parker and Miles Morales. As you saw in the PlayStation Showcase last month—the main storyline of the game will have you take control of both Spider-Men at different points of the campaign. In the open world, you will be able to switch nearly instantly between them as you explore Manhattan, Queens, and Brooklyn. Both Spider-Men have stories and missions in the world exclusive to each of them.

As you can see from our box art, Peter and Miles are both key protagonists in our story. The iconic red background returns, but darkness surrounds as fan-favorite villains like Venom, Lizard, and Kraven threaten them and Marvel’s New York. You will also notice that each character’s arm represents their new abilities: Peter with the symbiote, Miles with his evolved bioelectric Venom powers.

In addition to our launch date, we are excited to walk you through your options for experiencing Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. Pre-orders will open on June 16th, 2023 at all participating retailers, PlayStation Store, and PlayStation Direct. Pre-Orders will go live at 10:00 AM local time on June 16, 2023. Fans who pre-order any version of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will receive an early unlock Arachknight Suit for Peter with 3 additional color variants, an early unlock Shadow Spider Suit for Miles with 3 additional color variants, an early unlock Web Grabber gadget, and 3 skill points to get you started!

You will see the beautiful box art adorning the standard edition of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 for $69.99 / £69.99/ €79.99/ ¥8,980 MSRP. But that is not all! There will be a Digital Deluxe and Collector’s Edition of the game!

The Digital Deluxe edition of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 ($79.99 / £79.99/ €89.99/ ¥9,980 MSRP) will include the game, all the pre-order incentives, as well as 10 unique suits (5 for Peter, 5 for Miles), additional Photo Mode frames and stickers, and 2 additional skill points.

Sony looked at that Starfield release date and sensibly decided to stay away from September.

Starfield is going to dominate the gaming news cycle for a couple of weeks around release, if it's a decent game. If it's a great game or a disaster, it will dominate the news cycle for even longer. The Spider-Man game won't get nearly as much coverage if it launches in that window

SecondWar Spade (on 09 June 2023)

Late September to early December is always busy as everyone wants to get their game out for the peak holiday shopping season. Always the balances between hitting that window whilst not getting lost in the noise. Personally I think Spiderman will be fine.

VAMatt JWeinCom (on 09 June 2023)

To some extent, yes. But it's not about that. It's about getting press coverage. Starfield will eat up a ton of that, leaving less coverage available for any other games that launch near it.

Because devs dont hide everything wrong with the game, plan the shows to every little detail to make the games look better than they are , sometimes even making fake demos like cyberpunk devs did. You will find out in the release not in 3 days. In the days it will be gotg , perfect, the most hyped thing after cyberpunk 2077.

Phil stated we’ll find out what framerate options we’re going to have at launch for Stafield. That’s why I stated we’ll find out in now 2 days.

Even if it will have a 60fps performance mode, still not a guarantee it will be a stable 60fps lol

Over 11 months after gow:r that is a long wait between 1st party games, hopefully the release schedule is more consistent next year.

But there was the release of psvr2 and horizon call of the mountain in between.

Also MLB The Show...

I meant ps5 games, psvr2 is its own thing.

  • 0
JuliusHackebeil pikashoe (on 09 June 2023)

I can agree with that sentiment to an extent. But it is still a ps5 game (call of the mountain) just with the additional requirement of psvr2.

But I can fully agree that more would be better. Perhaps another showcase this year...

I will say though: few people actually care about exclusives coming from first, second or third parties. As long as a game is exclusive (if they even know about that) it is a purchasing argument and a big boon in the ps5 library. And you cannot ask for a much bigger title than ff16. Comes out in 2 weeks and fills the hole between Call of the Mountain and Forespoken in the beginning of the year and Spider Man 2 in the end(ish) quite nicely.

  • +1
Qwark JuliusHackebeil (on 09 June 2023)

Aside from the fact that Forspoken was as big as a turd of a game as Redfall

XD Yeah, aside from that of course 😆

pikashoe JuliusHackebeil (on 09 June 2023)

Psvr2 costs more than a ps5 and a very small fraction of ps5 owners will ever own one. It's irrelevant for the vast majority of ps5 owners. It's similar to the sega cd, those games aren't considered genesis games they are considered sega cd games

  • +3
JuliusHackebeil pikashoe (on 10 June 2023)

That's fair, yes, Call of the Mountain is not as much a ps5 game, as it is a psvr2 game that just runs exclusivly on the ps5.

I hope sony can make something similar to resident evil in the future. Not in tone, genre, setting, story, etc. Just to make some hybrid games, playable for flat screen and vr. Otherwise situations like this might get more common with first party being streched too thin across two platforms. But I don't know. Perhaps this also just a fluke dry spell for a billion other reasons.

pitzy272 pikashoe (on 09 June 2023)

FF16 comes out in June, which is big. What’s it matter if it’s first or second party if it’s still exclusive? Makes no difference to players. They’re still getting significant justification for their investment in a PS5.

  • +1
JuliusHackebeil pitzy272 (on 10 June 2023)

Exactly my sentiment. The library is here, just not only from first party. And who knows, ff7 remake and rebirth, ff16, forespoken: if square is satisfied with sales, perhaps they will put a ring on it in the next few years.

Wman1996 (on 09 June 2023)

I don't want to tempt fate, but hopefully it's stable at launch. I'd wait until November or December, or even Q1 2024 if it meant the game was stable.

BraLoD (on 10 June 2023)

It's probably going to be huge for PS5 but I just can't care about those heroes games anymore.
Used to love spider-man back on PS1 and PS2 where they were average, now that people tell me they are great I just don't wanna play them.
Maybe the one with Wolverine will get some hype on me...
