After the massive success of the first Marvel Spider-Man game, it was only natural that a sequel would surely be in the works. Spider-Man has always had a home on video game consoles, far more so than any of his superhero peers. Something about swinging from building to building in real time is just so appealing.
However, since the original Marvel's Spider-Man was released back in 2018, there has been no footage, leaks, or news of any kind that the sequel will be coming out anytime soon. Many fans had lost hope that the game would ever see the light of day, but luckily this doesn't seem to be the case.
Let's talk about Spider-Man 2.
Marvel's Spider-Man 2 "Still Slated For 2023" Release
In a Twitter thread, one user expressed their panic that the game would be delayed after being told by developers that it still wasn't ready.
Luckily, the official Insomniac Games Twitter account offered a reassuring reply, confirming that the game will still come out (hopefully in 2023) and good progress is being made.
The account went on to state that showing games takes time, effort, and a myriad of other factors, and these are the reasons why no footage has been shown yet.
Don't. We're making good progress and it's still slated for 2023. Showing games takes time, effort, resources, and coordination.— Insomniac Games (@insomniacgames) October 17, 2022
What To Expect From Marvel's Spider-Man 2
Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is expected to release sometime in 2023, exclusively for the PS5. As for the gameplay, Bill Rosemann, vice president of creative at Marvel Games, stated in an interview that the game will be "everything you love [about the first game and Miles Morales] but more."

He went on to state that "There are multiple foes. I can say the story very much continues and picks up from Marvel’s Spider-Man to Marvel’s Spider-Man, Miles Morales. I don’t want to reveal too much, but it’s the next big chapter, there are a lot of threads, a lot of characters that were in the first two games that you’ll see here.”
