Coming exclusively to PS4 from the geniuses at Insomniac Games
From a personal and professional standpoint, this is a dream come true. I’ve been an avid Marvel fan all my life. When I first learned Insomniac was approached by our long-time friends and collaborators at Sony Interactive Entertainment with the opportunity to create a blockbuster Spider-Man console game experience, I practically ran into Ted’s office professing my passion for Spider-Man – along with a desire to serve as creative director.
Fortunately, there are many more longtime fans and professional admirers of Marvel at Insomniac. From comics to films and TV, Marvel has a stellar reputation for unique characters and storytelling filled with personality and humor. Those are tenets we value deeply in our own craft.
From our first meeting, Marvel, Spider-Man and Insomniac have felt like a match made in heaven. So much so that for the first time in Insomniac’s 22-year history, we’re working on an IP that didn’t originate in-house. We love building big games, with incredible gameplay, deep stories, and beautiful graphics. Spider-Man is one of the most iconic and well-known characters in the world, and we’re thrilled to be given the responsibility to create a brand-new, authentic Spider-Man story.
Nope, this isn’t the same Spider-Man you’ve met before, nor is our game based on the upcoming movie. This is a more seasoned Peter Parker who’s more masterful at fighting big crime in New York City. At the same time, he’s struggling to balance his absurdly chaotic personal life and career. All while nine million New Yorkers depend on him for their safety… no pressure indeed.
This collaboration also allows us to quickly return to action developing on PS4. Having released Ratchet & Clank, we feel confident in our ability to create a showpiece for the console. And we’re downright giddy bringing Spidey’s acrobatic abilities, improvisation, and web-slinging to life. But we also want to introduce new elements that players have never experienced with Spider-Man, ranging from traversing with parkour and utilising the environment, to new combat and blockbuster set-pieces.
We can’t wait to share more about our Spider-Man game in the months to come. For all the latest, follow Insomniac Games on Twitter or Like us on Facebook.
I'm looking forward to this game so much more than I thought I would be.
Livecast with the Insomniac devs
he clearly said marvel respect spiderman weather it be the films the cartoon or the netflix series!!
what netflix series, has he just slipped up and confirmed we are getting one@davum
I guess this video will be deleted shortly then@hayzink
He's the best spiderman ever and you know it
Andrew garfield was better@davum
Seriously though I thought the kid from Civil War (or the writing) came closest to how spidey should be.@hayzink
You actually do hqve your own version
Yup got a lot media hype before predictably being declared rubbish.@hayzink
A bit more digging around on this has turned up a few things.
first it seems like marvel is going down the same route they did with films and is getting the rights back from studios to control their own properties which is why activision is not involved in this game.
marvel is pushing for quality titles with its newly formed game studio and plan to work with the best developers to make the best gaming titles for its fans.
Spiderman is just the first step and further titles are on the way with the only other announced title being the marvel telltale gme next year (info thin on the ground with that one)
so we could soon see the likes of x-men , the avengers and even guardians of the galaxy getting the type of games we all want to play rather than last min cash grabs to cash in on films.
so the future is bright, the future is marvel
X-men won't happen. Same with Fantastic Four. Sommit to do with 21st century fox.
Thats the movies@utio
Lots of licencing deals, like toys, and games too. Look at Marvel Mighty Heroes game. No x-men to be seen.
It all started when Disney bought Marvel.@hayzink
activision own the rights to xmen games just like they did with spiderman.
the reason you dont see much xmen or fantastic 4 stuff from marvel is because they are trying to screw with fox (so in a way you are right)
just google it and you will see that marvel stopped doing fantastic 4 comics and pretty much the same with xmen, the reason being they dont want to give the characters added exposure which in turn hurts the fox movies.
the end game, marvel wants the licenses back@utio
That's what I'm saying lol. We won't be seeing an x-men game any time soon.@hayzink
