Spider-Man 2 review codes have started being sent out to a few select members of the press, so now might be a good time to hop off social media if you don't want to encounter any spoilers!
Excitement for the game is through the roof, anyway, and while Insomniac is now expected to soon shift focus to Wolverine, there's already buzz surrounding a possible third Spider-Man game. You've no doubt heard the rumours about a Venom spin-off, but Spider-Man 3 is an eventual guarantee, right?
Talking with io9, Spider-Man 2 director Ben Arfmann weighed in on the franchise's future.
"I mean, I would love to be able to talk about [Spider-Man 3]," he said. "We love this game. We are so excited about this game. I'm really hoping that fans love it in the same way that we do. And we’re going to be so lucky to get to tell more stories."
"[But], for right now, I think what we can talk about is the game that comes out October 20."
That sort of answer was to be expected, but Insomniac Director of Community and Marketing James Stevenson then chimed in to tease "Maybe there's a post-credits scene," prompting Senior Writer Lauren Mee to add, "Yeah, it’s definitely a Marvel experience."
Both Spider-Man and Spider-Man: Miles Morales featured seismic post-credits scenes, all of which teed up this upcoming sequel. With that in mind, while Spider-Man 3 has yet to be officially announced, we may get a better idea of what it will look like once we see these stingers.
In the meantime, you can check out the full version of that recent Spider-Men vs. Venom promo below.
"Spider-Men Peter Parker and Miles Morales face the ultimate test of strength inside and outside the mask as they fight to save the city, each other, and the ones they love," reads the game's synopsis, "from the monstrous Venom and the dangerous new symbiote threat."
"Explore an expansive Marvel's New York with faster web-swinging and the all-new Web Wings, quickly switching between Peter and Miles to experience different stories, epic new abilities and high-tech gear."
