During a keynote at DICE Summit 2017, Marvel Games Creative Director Bill Rosemann talked a bit about the Spider-Man PS4 game in the works at Insoniac Games.

Rosemann talked about the relationship with Insomniac Games, and how they share the same story in discovering Spider-man as a character. Their purpose is to show the world why the character is so awesome, and they’re to focus their life’s journey into the game.

You may have heard that we’re making a spider-man game with Ted Price’s team at Insomniac and our friends at Sony Interactive Entertainment. The other day we were sitting around talking… Insomniac is only ten minutes away from Marvel Games offices… and we’re eating lunch and talking, asking each other: “hey, when you first get into Spider-Man? And we all realized we had the same story. We discovered him when we were very little. Not only that, we all realized that we all owned the same Spider-Man underoos back in the day.

And it feels like our lives have driven us to this moment. This is our purpose: to show the world why this character is so awesome. To bring this fictional world into the real world. It’s very personal for us. We’re going to focus our life’s journey into this game, to celebrate him with the world.

At the moment Sony Interactive Entertainment did not disclose a release window for the game. We saw a glimpse on it in September, after the announcement back at E3 2016.

We know that at the moment  the “vast majority” of Insomniac Games is working on the title, and it’s the “largest team ever” developing a game at the studio.
