Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is one of the highly anticipated titles scheduled to come out this year but fans of Insomniac Games' Spider-Man series have been worried that the game would be delayed outside of 2022, as the studio's been quiet about the game for some time. But, now, a promising new update from the voice actor of the game's Peter Parker has arrived.
A few months ago, Insomniac Games broke its radio silence to assure fans that the game is still on track for its scheduled release this year and now Yuri Lowenthal's latest line has echoed the same thoughts.
I've still got a little bit to do. It's a massive game so I'm still doing a little bit of work. I know they're confident about their release date and Insomniac has always been good about that. Obviously, I can't really talk about the game much, but I will tell you that it's astonishing.
He adds, "I'm so excited for you to play it. They know they've got big shoes to fill from the last two games and they've done it. I just can't wait for people to play it."
While Lowenthal didn't reveal an exact release date for Marvel's Spider-Man 2, it’s great to hear the actor give an update. It should be comforting for fans to know that Insomniac Games is working hard on the title.
Assuming that it all goes as planned, fans should be getting more updates from Insomniac Games in the coming months.
In Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker will be teaming up with Miles Morales to fight crime in New York City. The duo will take on almost every villain that has appeared in the 60-year Spider-Man comic book series, but Venom will be the main antagonist of the game.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 was originally announced in September 2021 during the PlayStation Showcase. The reveal trailer featuring Peter Parker, Miles Morales, and Venom ends with a release window of 2023.
The game’s creative director Bryan Intihar gave a brief statement in December regarding the release of the Spider-Man sequel. "Here’s to next year being just as exciting as we continue to get Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 ready for release next fall," Intihar said on the PlayStation Blog.
