It looks like we might finally have a more specific release window for one of the year’s most exciting games, all thanks to one of its actors.
You’ve seen the headline, I’m of course talking about Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. The PS5-exclusive sequel to the excellent Marvel’s Spider-Man has been in the works for some time now, and although we’ve still only seen a single reveal trailer for it, we’re getting closer and closer to finally being able to swing through the streets of New York once more.
Take a look at the trailer for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 right here.
It sounds like it’s going to be worth the wait too. In an interview earlier this year, Peter Parker’s in-game actor, Yuri Lowenthal, called the sequel “astonishing” and “massive”. Tony Todd, who plays Venom in the game, previously teased that his character is going to have a particularly brutal role.
As The Direct reports, it’s Todd who’s now seemingly revealed just when the game is going to be coming out. Previously, it was confirmed by Insomniac Games that the title is slated for autumn 2023, but the actor has now narrowed that down.
“Looks like September! Massive publicity coming in August. Commercials start dropping in August so I’m told,” he wrote in a now-deleted tweet. “Hold on to your… and hold [your] breath! Gonna be necessary.”
At the time of writing, this hasn’t been officially confirmed by Insomniac or Sony, but given that Todd is a huge part of the game, you’d think he’d probably know better than most when it’s set to release. It seems like he might have been gently told to be careful about what he’s saying too, because in a follow-up tweet (containing the best selfie of all time), he wrote: “No more hints about Spider-Man 2 it was all a fever dream. Blame it on jet lag who knows I might not even [be] Venom.”
For now, take it with a pinch of salt, but hopefully Todd’s claims are accurate - the sooner the game releases, the better. He also recently tweeted that he's "out of work" - let's hope that he's joking and that he didn't get in too much trouble for the tweet.
