Since the announcement of Spider-Man PS4 back in 2016, Insomniac Games have shared very little information about the game. However, Marvel is not only very confident about the upcoming Spider-Man game but also about the Avengers title in development and hopes that when these games come out these will be the best games in the market.
Speaking with Gamespot, Jay Ong, senior vice president of games and innovation at Marvel, said that the company is very confident about the upcoming Spider-Man PS4. He added that the game should not be about the novelty of the title but should define the platform and the experience it offers.
We think if we do something there, it shouldn’t be just for the novelty of it. It should be something that defines the platform, that defines the experience. Certainly, we’re looking to build when Spider-man comes out, it’ll be one of the best games on the platform, and when Avengers comes out, it’ll be one of the best games on those platforms. We think our efforts in VR will be the same thing.
The release date has not been confirmed for the game but according to Marvel, Spider Man PS4 will launch in 2017. According to Vice President of Marvel’s Digital Media Group Ryan Penagos, both Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man and Marvel Vs. Capcom Infinite will launch in 2017.
However, developer Insomniac Games was quick to clarify that the game does not have a release date yet. While the game does not have any release date yet, but Insomniac Games did not say that it won’t launch in 2017.
Furthermore, aside from Spider-Man PS4 and Avengers games there will be more games based on Marvel comics. According to Jay Ong, Spiderman is just the beginning for the Marvel to bring its comic book characters to consoles.
Spider-Man PS4 is an upcoming open-world action adventure game and no release date has been announced by the developers.
