The PlayStation 4 exclusive Spider-Man game from Insomniac will be arriving in 2017, according to Marvel Digital Media’s vice president and executive editor Ryan Penagos.
In a livestream (captured by Reddit user GamingSince95), Penagos inadvertently let the news slip when talking about their upcoming portfolio. “… There’s even more on the horizon for 2017 like Spider-Man coming to PlayStation 4 and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC.”
The game was first announced at E3 2016 during Sony’s press conference. Neither Sony, Marvel, nor Insomniac have officially announced the release date. Details about how it will play are sparse, outside of this official description:
"From traversing with parkour and utilizing the environment, to new combat and blockbuster set pieces, it's Spider-Man unlike any you've played before,"
As GameSpot points out, a new film -- Spider-Man: Homecoming -- is set to hit cinemas in July. The game isn’t tied to the movie.
We’ll keep you updated as official announcements become available.
