Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man Confirmed PS4 Exclusive, Open World; More Info Shared

on June 13, 2016 11:12 PM

Today, during the YouTube Live broadcast hosted by Geoff Keighley, Creative Director Bryan Intihar provided more color on the newly announced Spider-Man game.

You can read a recap of what he mentioned below:

  • Spider-Man is the biggest game ever for Insomniac, and the most ambitious game ever for Marvel.
  • It’s an open world game.
  • The game has been in development¬†for “quite some time.”
  • It’s not part of the films, and Insomniac is doing a bit of its own thing and “mixing things up” to an extent. It’s an original story, and this was an opportunity for Insomniac Games to create “their own Spider-Man universe.” It still respects the tradition of the franchise but the developers can afford to take some liberties, for instance with the design of Spider-Man’s suit, that could be seen in the trailer.
  • It’s getting better and better every day as development progresses.
  • This is a story where Spider-Man’s world and Peter Parker’s world collide. It focuses on¬†who is the man under the mask, and who the man becomes after he puts the mask on.
  • The game is confirmed as a PS4 exclusive, published by Sony Interactive Entertainment.
  • Spider Man is a working title, for now. .
