Insomniac Games’ PlayStation 4-exclusive Spider-Man title will be released in 2017, according to Ryan Penagos, vice president and executive editor of Marvel Digital Media.
In a livestream captured by Reddit user GamingSince95, Penagos was talking about Marvel’s recent video game output and said, “there’s even more on the horizon for 2017 like Spider-Man coming to PlayStation 4 and Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
Insomniac’s Spider-Man title was announced during E3 2016 but as of yet, neither Insomniac nor Sony have officially announced a release date for the game.
Spider-Man the game has players slinging webs as the iconic hero in a completely original story. It takes place at a time when Peter Parker is “experienced” and “more masterful at fighting crime” in New York.
“From traversing with parkour and utilizing the environment, to new combat and blockbuster set pieces, it’s Spider-Man unlike any you’ve played before,” reads a line from the game’s description.
Spider-Man is only a working title for the PlayStation 4 game, however it is the first licensed game Insomniac has ever made.
