Will Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Get a Sequel? Everything You Need to Know
After launching to fantastic reviews, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 continues to win the hearts of gamers. While there are plenty of things in the game to keep players occupied for months, there’s also the question of what is coming next. It’s one of the biggest Marvel properties, and Sony won’t just let it go like that. It’s just a matter of when and what to expect.
If you’re wondering if Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will get a sequel, here’s everything you need to know.
Will We Get a Sequel to Marvel’s Spider-Man 2?
Short answer: Yes! As we’ve said earlier, Spider-Man games are one of the biggest Marvel properties, so there’s doubt that we’ll soon see the release of Marvel’s Spider-Man 3 at some point. While we still don’t have anything officially confirmed by Insomniac Games, we can expect a few things based on what we know about the rest of the series.
When is Marvel’s Spider-Man 3 Coming Out?
While there’s nothing officially confirmed, we can look at the release of the previous Spider-Man games to figure out how long we have to wait for the next one. The original Spider-Man dropped in September 2018, followed by Spider-Man: Miles Morales in November 2020, then Spider-Man 2 in October in October 2023.
That’s a gap of two years between Spider-Man and its Miles sequel, which was followed by a three-year gap for the latest entry in the franchise. If we assume that Spider-Man 3 is the next entry in the franchise instead of another Miles Morales-sized installment, we shouldn’t expect to see it until Fall 2026 or early 2077.
What’s Coming in Marvel’s Spider-Man 3?
There’s no doubt that Insomniac Games has delivered a worthy Game of the Year contender with the release of Spider-Man 2, but the team won’t stop to look into the future and how Spider-Man 3 could shake up things for the universe of our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
During an interview, creative director Bryan Intihar said:
“I think if Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales was our Iron Man, and Spider-Man 2 was like Civil War…where logically do we go from there? I think it’d be pretty epic.”
This comparison makes it seem like Spider-Man 3 will go on to build on the stories of the first few games in the story, building on a large cast of characters, like in Avengers: Endgame.
Aside from this statement, if we take a look at Spider-Man 2’s story, especially its ending, we get some clear signals for what Peter and Miles might have to go against in the next installment.
The ending of Spider-Man 2 also points towards a shakeup in the superhero roster for the next game.
