Undoubtedly, one of the biggest highlights of the PlayStation Showcase was the reveal of gameplay for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. The demo demonstrated the upgraded visuals and combat as well as the implementation of new traversal options, new areas of New York City to explore, and of course, the infamous black suit. Insomniac revealed a lot of extra information about their next big game in a PlayStation blog post released after the Showcase. However, one question remains unanswered: “When is Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 coming out?”
Here is a roundup of everything you need to know about when you will get PlayStation’s next big title.
When Is Spider-Man 2 Coming Out?
At the moment, the game is still slated for a Fall 2023 release date. A special statement from Bryan Intihar, creative director at Insomniac, confirmed this: “Here’s to next year being just as exciting as we continue to get Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 ready for release next fall.” PlayStation released that statement in December 2020, meaning we are just a few months away from release. Beyond that, however, there’s not a lot of official information we have about the game’s actual release date.
However, in March of 2023, there was some potential information about a release date. Tony Todd, the voice actor set to portray Venom, answered a question about Spider-Man 2‘s release timeline in a now-deleted tweet. Todd stated that the release date “looks like September!” In the same post, he mentions that the game would start having “massive publicity” in August.

So that means September is a dead ringer, right? Tony Todd’s tweet was deleted, meaning that Insomniac wasn’t happy about the information coming out. Plus, September 2023 would be the five-year anniversary of Spider-Man PS4’s original release date. And sure, September seems the most likely candidate for a release timeline. But ultimately, it’s almost impossible to say. For all we know, Spider-Man 2 could release in October, to coincide with Halloween and the darker themes of the story. Or maybe even later. Or earlier, if we’re lucky.
What we do know is that Insomniac has been adamant about a Fall 2023 release date since December, which means we will probably get more information about an actual date and pre-order information in the next few months. Somewhere between July and August seems likely, especially with both Comic Con in the former and Gamescom in the latter.
