Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Marvel’s Wolverine revealed

Veteran developer Insomniac Games creating two new titles for PlayStation 5 consoles.

In my nearly 18 years of working at Insomniac Games (wow—has it really been that long?!), one of the things I’ve always appreciated about the studio is how it truly values and fosters collaboration. When we work together, and more importantly, when we listen to each other, the end result is always better.

That approach even applies when we work with those outside our studio, as it’s been such a pleasure to collaborate with Marvel Games. Learning from and sharing with these true believers as we created games such as Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales has been a career highlight for many of us. And what’s so exciting is that our collaboration isn’t ending anytime soon, as today we revealed not one—but TWO—new Marvel titles coming from Insomniac Games: Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Marvel’s Wolverine.

Let’s start with the one most of you probably could’ve guessed: Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. We’re so thrilled to continue the journey of both Peter Parker and Miles Morales in their most epic single-player adventure yet, coming exclusively to PlayStation 5 consoles in 2023.

While pushing the capabilities of the console will be very exciting, we’re equally pumped to craft all-new stories for Peter and Miles in this sequel. Just as in our previous Spider-Man games, we not only want to tell a great Super Hero story, but also deliver a compelling human story, one full of heart and humor that dives deep into the people behind the mask. 

Much of the development team that brought you Marvel’s Spider-Man is returning to produce Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, including Bryan Intihar (creative director) and Ryan Smith (game director). Today’s game footage trailer is merely just a glimpse at what’s in store in terms of the new abilities our heroes will acquire, suits they will wear (more on that some other time), and the villains that will try to hunt them down. And speaking of villains, did you catch that final line at the end of the trailer? We’re so happy to announce that Tony Todd (of Candyman fame) will be voicing the symbiote-fueled Venom in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. We’re also delighted to welcome back Yuri Lowenthal and Nadji Jeter, who will reprise their roles as Peter and Miles respectively. We’ve been fortunate to work with so many incredibly talented actors in our Spider-Man games, and Tony has been such a wonderful addition to the cast.

Now let’s talk about the announcement you probably weren’t expecting: Marvel’s Wolverine. Back when we were working on Marvel’s Spider-Man, there would be times where all of us—Insomniac, Sony Interactive Entertainment, and Marvel—would brainstorm together about the future beyond the web-slinger. And even in those early discussions, Wolverine continually came up as the character we’d be really stoked to work on together. Fast-forward a couple years and we’re suddenly standing in front of Sony Interactive Entertainment and Marvel formally pitching a PlayStation 5 game starring the adamantium-clawed Mutant! (Since you just saw the announce teaser, we can confirm that the pitch seemed to go pretty well.)

So many of the Insomniac team are such huge fans of the character, and one of the key elements that drew us to him is surprisingly not that different from Spider-Man: Both heroes feel deeply compelled to defend people who are less able to do so. 

Marvel’s Wolverine is a standalone game being directed by Brian Horton (creative director) and Cameron Christian (game director), who recently led the creative efforts on Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, a game we’re extremely proud of at Insomniac. In the vein of our Spider-Man games, our goal here is to not only respect the DNA of what makes the character so popular, but also look for opportunities to make it feel fresh and truly reflect the Insomniac spirit. Even though Marvel’s Wolverine is very early in development, from what I’ve seen of its emotional narrative and cutting-edge gameplay (see what I did there?), the team is already creating something truly special.

Being able to build a new, original universe with Spider-Man and now Wolverine is such an honor for so many of us at Insomniac Games. A huge thanks to our Sony Interactive Entertainment family for giving us the opportunity to develop these games, Marvel for trusting us with characters that mean so much to so many people, and of course, our fans for continuing to believe in us.

  • OMG! Spider-Man 2 & a new Wolverine game!!!
    Big thank U to playstation & Insomniac

  • dear Insomniac,

    please please please let me play as Venom, i will buy the game so fast if i can play Venom

    sincerely,
    The Over-Optimistic But Rational Gamer

  • I wish it will arrive 2022

  • Love how Ryan Schneider writes this so non-formal. makes it interesting. really can’t wait to pre-order both

  • Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is going to be great. I don’t expect Venom to be a playable character in the sequel but I can definitely see Venom as a playable character in a third game with the storyline akin to the Maximum Carnage saga.
    Currently, X-Men Origins Wolverine is the best Wolverine game ever made. Insomniac Games has the potential to create the greatest Wolverine game of all-time. Looking forward to more info as time goes by.

  • So excited for this sequal.

  • “one of the things I’ve always appreciated about the studio is how it truly values and fosters collaboration. When we work together, and more importantly, when we listen to each other…”

    Do you also listen to the women who have been harassed in all those years, Ryan?

  • I think what I’m most curious about is how will Wolverine get around? Spider-Man’s web-slinging mechanics are crucial to the game. Obviously, Logan’s claws and some sort of cutting mechanic are going to be a big part of this game but I’m curious as to how what kind of mechanics will propel Logan around this world. I’m assuming this is going to be another sandbox game. How many different development teams exist within the Insomniac organization, anyway? There must be at least three between the last two Spider-Man games and the latest “Ratchet & Clank” title.

    • spider-man and miles game.

      they are always working on a few titles at a time like most studios. Though if it is a open world game it will most likely have cars though I would guess it will be like the old Wolverine game and Instanced with fake open world elements.

  • Plz insomniac add more new characters create a marvel gaming universe, and another question if they announced wolverine that means the x-men are existing in insomniac universe? And then we have spider man the avengers x-men and maybe just maybe the fantastic 4?

  • This looks and is jaw-dropping awesome to get fans interested to get their hands on these future playing actions of which for those having ps5, great, yet those who still have ps4, like the beatles catchphrase ” all we are saying is give us a chance “.

  • please make spider-man 2 a cross gen game. Sony, please!

  • This was best part showcase no cap

  • Hi
    Please release Spider-Man 2 for PS4 as well …

  • I watched both trailers so many times at this point. Please take your time with these.

  • Can’t wait for the next spider man as always I’m sure it will be a blast.

  • Extremely excited for both of these games, Insomniac keeps on pushing the boundaries by making great games! Hopefully the collaboration with Marvel continues and expand further so Insomniac keeps on creating more amazing superheroes games!

  • Games look incredible but I don’t understand developers. Why in gods name would you NOT make spideman 2 a co-op game? You dont even have to change the story. Just let two people play at the same time. Games these days are all about online multiplayer and this is another missed opportunity by developers leaving out co-op.

  • I’m so damn excited for this 2 Marvel’s games. Didn’t expect a Wolverine game announcement at all but is nice.

  • This is crazy. Venom is one of my favorite if not my favorite character of all time next to spider-man. I hope they don’t make Harry venom or I will be massively disappointed

  • Say it with me everyone. Rated M for Mature. Please don’t make Wolverine some T for teen crap. I imagine most want a Logan type style.

  • I have first game cant wait for this one.

  • Insomniac Games I love you guys deary to my heart, 2023 will be a roller coaster- I am SO excited for this masterpiece 😍

  • Esto es hermoso
    😎😎😎

  • The game looks great but some of us needs ps5 first

  • So, I have a few questions first is both games coming out for ps5 and ps4? Second one is a statement I’ve been waiting for GTA 6 for so long please don’t make me wait two years please I don’t think I can take it I know both games are going to be🔥 someone please get back to me on that question

  • Ok I understand that ps5 is new and It needs more new games but making spiderman2 exclusive to the ps5 is not fair too people who don’t have a ps5 and can’t even afford a ps5 and that’s a lot of people so releasing spiderman 2 on ps5 and ps4 will make the game have a lot more people buying it and it will do a whole lot better just saying

  • There is only one thing I know about insomniac the game always slap

  • Big Spider-man fan and as soon it gets a pre order.
    I´m going to pre order a copy.

  • I love Sony. I’m sorry I got a Series X. I’m buying a PS5. Forgive me. Oh my God.

  • LETS GOOO IS PS5 ONLY THANK YOU INSOMNIACGAMES YALL SERIOUSLY THE GOAT I can’t wait for Spider-Man 2

  • I am kinda annoyed how they are ps5 exclusives because I can’t buy one and I spent all my money on a ps4 so can insomniac games try and make it on ps4 to cause if not I am pretty sad

  • Wird das marvel spider man 2 auch für ps4 geben

  • will there be any type of DC games in the future? like don’t get me wrong i love these marvel games but a flash game or green arrow or something like that would be amazing. marvel is amazing tho and i hope you guys continue doing collabs or any type of games with superpowers and amazing stories y’all are killing it!!

  • So now we wait

  • The game looks good although I hope it is also for ps4 to be able to play it because I liked the first game and also to see the new aventure of Miles and Peter

  • I understand that they want to give more exclusives to PS5 and show what it is layers, but also many people can not get the PS5 and I do not think that after 2 PS4 games of spider man and giving us post-credit scenes in the games of this new game to tell us that the sequel to the game that impacted us is only for the new generation.

  • Honestly chaps, the quality of the games the team at Insomniac Studios are pushing out and the your turnover speed is outstanding.
    Truly can’t wait to see what comes next. You have seriously created the template for games and gaming for this generation and no doubt the generations to come.
    Bravo Insomniac, you all really are the G.O.A.T.

  • Can we be seeing the beginning of the Marvel Games Universe being helmed by Sony. I really hope this is the beginning of X-men coming together that would be sweet.

  • I cannot wait for this release not only for 1 Marvel’s game but 2 games. Now this is worth buying a PlayStation 5 Pro for both. Thank you, SONY PLAYSTATION.

  • Good time
    I hope Sony helps PS4 fans and owners
    Release all games for the next 2 or 3 years for PS4
    The release of God Of War Ragnarok for PS4❤ made us really happy and excited
    I hope Marvel Spider-Man 2 and the rest of the exclusive PS5 games are proudly released for PS4.
    Holders of PS4 may be able to get PS5 as long as they play these games
    I’m saying that I may be able to get PS5 in the next 5 or 6 years
    Because the economic situation is bad
    And if Sony gives much more support and importance to PS4 owners, we will be really grateful to them for the rest of our lives.
    And finally, the release of PS5 games for PS4
    This does not mean that PS5 owners should be upset because they really should not be upset and should not have the right to object.
    Because they really get the best quality, graphics, frames and potential from these games
    But we, the owners of PS4, do not need high quality and graphics
    It is enough for us to advance the story of the game and enjoy it
    I hope previous PS5 games like Returnal and other PS5 games and games will be released for PS4 in the next 2 or 3 years.
    Thank You❤💎

    • And I hope people and some
      Give up the offering exclusive PS5 games only for PS5
      And look at the owners of PS4 fairly
      70% of people in the world do not really have the money to buy a PS5
      Please understand the owners of PS4 and offer all the games for the next 2-3 years and other PS5 games for PS4 as well.
      The important thing is that these two consoles are PS4 and PS5 from Sony
      Not for another company
      All PS4 and PS5 owners are from the same family
      ( PlayStation family )❤
      Please people understand this
      I ask Sony to support PS4 fans and owners a lot more.
      Thank You❤

  • Two questions

    Does stand alone mean Wolverine mean it’s not gonna be in the same universe as Spider-Man?

    Will Wolverine be open world?

  • I hope to release both games for ps4
    Miles morales worked great on ps4
    All we need is just a “playable” experience

  • They should work on captain America game or iron man game or even Thor game. Just imagine flying around a city like iron man with top notch graphics🤑🤑

  • great more of cramming miles in.

  • Why can’t Spider man and Wolverine games can’t be for ps4 and ps5 btw i love insomniac games and the spider man games 🔥

    • I know that’s what I’m saying, it doesn’t make sense to make 2 Insomniac Spider-Man games on both the PS4 and PS5 and then tell us that they’re next Insomniac Spider-Man game will only be released on the PS5 and not on both the PS5 and PS4 because I have both Insomniac Spider-Man games on my PS4 and I was really hoping that when they announced the release of they’re next Spider-Man game as a pre-order you could buy it off the Playstation Store as a Cross-Gen Version like they did with Miles Morales. Because I don’t have the money right now to be able to afford buying a PS5 Console that’ll cost over $1,000, to me it just sounds ridiculous and stupid to hear that they plan on only releasing it exclusively on the PS5 and not on both the PS5 and PS4.

  • After this game’s exclusive release on the PS5, will it eventually be released on the PS4 in order to complete the trilogy with Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales? I mean y’all could make it work to where it could be pre-ordered on the Playstation Store as a Cross-Gen bundle like y’all did with Miles Morales it just doesn’t make any sense to tell us fans that y’all plan on releasing Insomniac’s Marvel Spider-Man 2 exclusively on the PS5 only and not on both the PS5 and PS4 and make it to where we could go on any PS4 and then go into the Playstation Store and pre-order it as a Cross-Gen bundle because some of us PS4 owners can’t afford to buy a PS5 that costs over $1,000 it’s just ridiculous.

    • Exactly, this game could also give us one of the best games for the eighth generation as was the previous Spiderman’s

  • Hey Sony PLEASE release Spiderman 2 and Wolverine for PS4 PLEASE PLEASE Im a huge fan

  • All these years I been waiting on Wolverine since X-men origins cam out thank u PlayStation and marvel studios for commin together and making both a spider man 2 and Wolverine
