Spider-Man Developers Already Aiming for the Top
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 has swung into action, and while fans are currently immersed in its thrilling gameplay and captivating storyline, thoughts are already drifting towards the potential future of the series. Senior Creative Director Bryan Intihar recently shared some tantalizing hints about what might lie ahead for Spider-Man’s gaming adventures.
Appearing on the Friends Per Second podcast alongside GameSpot’s Lucy James, Intihar teased the exciting possibilities for a third game in the Spider-Man series. Comparing the evolution of the series to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he drew an intriguing parallel. Intihar suggested that if Spider-Man 1 and Miles Morales were akin to the origin story of Iron Man, and Spider-Man 2 resembled the climactic Civil War, then the logical trajectory for a third installment could be “pretty epic.”
In the video interview, keen-eyed viewers will notice Intihar’s thoughtful expressions and careful choice of words, underscoring the significance of the future direction of the series. These hints have sparked excitement and speculation among fans, eager to see where Spider-Man’s journey will lead.
The first game, released in 2018, was a massive success, selling over 33 million copies. Given the massive expectations surrounding the sequel, it wouldn’t come as a shock if a third entry were announced in the future.
However, Insomniac, the developer behind the games, is not limiting itself to just the web-slinger. They are also working on a standalone Wolverine game with Marvel, and there have been whispers about a potential Venom-specific game. As Insomniac is owned by Sony, these future titles are likely to be exclusive to PlayStation platforms upon launch, with a possible release on PC at a later date.

In GameSpot’s review, the game garnered an impressive score of 8/10. Reviewer Jordan Ramee emphasized that while Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 may build on the foundations laid by Insomniac’s previous games, the enduring charm of the series continues to captivate players, making it a must-play experience for fans and newcomers alike. The future of Spider-Man in gaming appears as promising as ever.
