Although Insomniac’s upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive Spider-Man game may not have an official title yet, it has been reported that the game will release later this year.
Reddit user GamingSince95 managed to capture this clip from a livestream yesterday, where Marvel vice president, Ryan Penagos stated that “there’s more on the horizon for 2017, like Spider-Man coming to PlayStation 4.”
Of course it is possible that the game doesn’t hit the 2017 expected release. Games get delayed all the time, and projects such as this one are not always directly related with people like Marvel’s vice president, so it would not be a total surprise if Penagos simply misstated information about the game.
When the game’s trailer was first shown at the Electronic Gaming Expo 2016 (E3), many speculated that the release was still a few years off, due to the trailer only being in-engine concept footage, and the game not having an official title. However, there is no telling how long the team at Insomniac has had the project in the works.
If the game is to release this year, I would bet we’ll see and hear more at E3 in June. Of course Marvel would probably prefer to have a brand new Spider-Man game release within months of Spider-Man: Homecoming, so perhaps the game really is coming this year. Because, you know, synergy.
