Insomniac Games' Spider-Man Has No Release Date, Despite Marvel Saying Otherwise


Ryan Penagos, Marvel's Vice President, said that Insomniac's officially undated PS4 exclusive Spider-Man will be released at some point this year, but Insomniac disagrees.

In a stream (found by Reddit user GamingSince95), Penagos says "there's… more on the horizon for 2017, like Spider-man coming to PlayStation 4".

Penagos has no connection to Marvel's games division, and the comics division is increasingly divorced from the movies side of the company (the upcoming Marvel vs. Capcom won't have any X-Men, possibly because of those pesky movie rights), so this could just be his best guess or an empty promise made to placate fans. Or maybe he confused the game with Spider-Man: Homecoming? That'd be a pretty big mistake, but do know is that Insomniac is not giving a date for the game yet. they reached out to Polygon who broke the story this morning on Twitter, saying:

Now, there could be no release date because they're holding it for a trade show release, or because the game is stuck in the ever-shrinking Games Development Hell and so has no release date yet. Granted, it was just announced last E3, so it's hardly stuck in development hell by any reckoning.

What do we know about Insomniac's Spider-Man so far? Well, not a lot.

The game didn't appear at PSX or the Game Awards, but Insomniac is "working on cool stuff to share in 2017!" and it won't hold to any of the existing Spidey-continuity. You can check out the E3 2016 announcement trailer for the game here.
