Spider-Man is an upcoming action-adventure video game based on the Marvel Comics superhero Spider-Man. It is being developed by Insomniac Games and to be published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for PlayStation 4. It will be the first licensed game developed by Insomniac. The game will tell a new story about Spider-Man and is not tied to a film or comic book. The game will cover both the Peter Parker and Spider-Man aspects of the character and will feature a more experienced Spider-Man.
Peter Parker (Yuri Lowenthal) is 23 years old and interning at a laboratory whilst about to graduate from college. Peter has been Spider-Man for eight years and has settled into his role as protector of New York City. Early in the story Spider-Man defeats Wilson Fisk (aka the Kingpin) but a new gang emerges known as the Inner Demons who are now taking over Fisk’s territory.
In April 2017, Ryan Penagos, Vice President & Executive Editor of Marvel Digital Media, stated that the game would be released in 2017. At Sony’s E3 2017 conference, the first gameplay demo was shown and it was announced that the game would be released in 2018. Shawn Layden, the president of SIE America and chairman of SIE Worldwide Studios later confirmed that Spider-Man, and SIE’s other games announced for 2018 at the conference, will be released in the first half of 2018.
