12What, Where, & When
Marvel's Spider-Man is the official title of the next video game to star everyone's favorite wall-crawler. It's being crafted by Insomniac Games, the developer behind the Ratchet & Clank series, the Resistance games, and most recently, Sunset Overdrive. Spider-Man represents the first time Insomniac has created a game around a
licensed property; every prior title the studio has been behind was an original IP.
Sunset Overdrive was a gonzo, over-the-top action fest that showcased incredible fluidity of movement and spectacular parkour moves. So when it was announced at E3 2016 that the folks behind Sunset Overdrive's awesome moves were set to create the web-slinger's next video game outing, it sounded like a home run. Marvel's Spider-Man is even being built on a modified version of the Overdrive engine.
Marvel's Spider-Man is due to arrive sometime in 2018 — Insomniac won't get more specific than that yet — and like all Insomniac titles, it will be exclusive to PlayStation. It will run on both PlayStation 4 and PS4 Pro.
