Marvel Teases Upcoming VR Announcements; Says Spider-Man “One of the Best Games” on PS4
Insomniac Games and Marvel aim for Spider-Man to be one of the best titles on PS4.
Marvel has a couple of really exciting months to look forward to, with the release of Spider-Man and Avengers soon, the studio is also preparing for a number of VR-related announcements.
Marvel’s Senior VP of Games and Innovations, Jay Ong, shared some of the studio’s upcoming announcement plans, which will apparently focus on VR, in a recent interview with GameSpot.
It’s going to be exciting here. Absolutely expect some announcements in VR, that’s something we’re really excited about. I think our fans are going to go crazy. The things we’re doing there are absolutely amazing.
Ong continued to discuss the games releasing soon from the studio, including the likes of PS4-exclusive Spider-Man and the Avengers title slated for release in 2018.
In VR, we have that same ambition. We think if we do something there, it shouldn’t be just for the novelty of it. It should be something that defines the platform, that defines the experience. Certainly we’re looking to build when Spider-Man comes out, it’ll be one of the best games on the platform, and when Avengers comes out, it’ll be one of the best games on those platforms. We think our efforts in VR will be the same thing.
Spider-Man releases some time later this year on PS4.
