Not that there was ever any doubt about the anticipation surrounding the sequel, but these figures should further cement that.
Insomniac Games’ output has been ridiculously impressive these last few years, but without a doubt, their biggest and most successful release in recent times has been Marvel’s Spider-Man. A direct sequel for the game was announced last year, and it’s no surprise that people are more than a little excited about the game.
How excited? Well, the reveal trailer for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, which debuted at the PlayStation Showcase in September 2021, has crossed 20 million total views to date. That’s just the trailer uploaded by the official PlayStation channel- accounting for all the other videos uploaded by different regional PlayStation and Marvel channels, that number is obviously a lot higher.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is promising to be an ambitious game, according to the people working on it, and is apparently going to have a much darker tone than its predecessors. There’s still a lot that we don’t yet know about the game, but with a PS5 launch scheduled for 2023, there’s plenty of time left for Sony and Insomniac to start revealing things.
