Recently, Marvel’s Digital Media Group Vice President Ryan Penagos has announced in an online show that the upcoming Spider-Man PS4 release date is scheduled for 2017. It’s been a long while since an official announcement has been made after the game’s reveal at E3 2016. Potentially, we may get more Spider-Man PS4 news in the coming months.
Release Date Confirmed
BreakingGarrick’s thread on the PS4 subreddit has posted a clip that featured Penagos talking about the upcoming Spider-Man PS4 release date. Penagos confirms that the upcoming game is confirmed this 2017 along with Marvel Vs Capcom Infinite.
However, Penagos didn’t confirm exactly when the game will launch this year. Potentially, we may hear more information at upcoming Marvel events or large gaming events. The Spider-Man PS4 game may be discussed while promoting the upcoming Spider-Man Homecoming movie. Lastly, the game might be announced in the upcoming E3 2017 during Sony’s presser.
Insomniac Games and Game Development
Insomniac Games will develop the upcoming Spider-Man PS4 game. Previously, Insomniac worked on Ratchet and Clank and the Xbox One exclusive Sunset Overdrive. According to Destructoid, Jamie Fristrom, Spider-Man 2’s technical director who worked on its great web slinging mechanics, isn’t in this project. Spider-Man games featured open world gameplay that allows players to experience moving around using web swings and superhuman agility.
Previously, Activision published and Beenox developed the console Spider-man games like Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions, Spider-Man Edge of Time, and two Amazing Spider Man movie games. Insomniac Games has proven themselves to have a good history of Sony exclusives, but we’ll have to wait if they can make a good Spider-man game.
Other Marvel Titles Coming
Marvel has more games incoming other than Spider-Man PS4. The first episode of Marvel’s Guardians of The Galaxy game from Telltale Games is about to be released this April 18 . Meanwhile, the Marvel Vs Capcom Infinite fighting game is also confirmed to be released sometime this 2017. Lastly, the Avengers project between Marvel and Square Enix, particularly Eidos Montreal, is also part of the Marvel schedule.
For now, we’ll have to wait for more updates from Marvel and these myriad of video game developer companies to know the release dates of these superhero games. On the other hand, some DC superheroes will duke it out in Injustice 2 this coming May. Stay updated with more gaming news here on The BitBag.
