There’s no doubt that Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is one of this year’s most exciting video games, but its release in a number of countries seems uncertain.
The PS5-exclusive sequel to 2018’s excellent web-slinging adventure looks absolutely phenomenal - in the open world, players are able to switch freely between Peter Parker and Miles Morales, and use their unique abilities to do cool Spidey things around New York. Peter obviously gets his hands on the symbiote suit at some point, too, and that looks ridiculously overpowered (but extremely fun). Oh, and the game’s world is literally twice the size of its predecessor’s. Imagine all the backpacks that could be hidden in that.
Take a look at the trailer for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 below.
Although the sequel is set to release on 20 October, as VGC reports, there have been reports that fans in certain countries in the Middle East (including Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates) are currently unable to preorder Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 at all.
Over on Reddit, some fans reported that the game’s release date on the PlayStation Store was simply showing as “to be determined”, with no option to add it to their carts. One user claimed to have preordered the title before it was “removed” from the store, and stated that they later received a refund for their purchase. What’s more, it seems that the game’s age rating has been removed altogether from local PlayStation website listings.
Right now, multiple reports from fans tell contradictory stories. While some have claimed to have been informed by PlayStation Support that the game will indeed be releasing on 20 October, others have allegedly been told that it might not release in the Middle East at all. As such, it’s not currently clear what’s going on, and Sony is yet to officially respond to the situation.
