Great news Spider-Man fans, the recently revealed Spider-Man PS4 won’t be a one-off as Sony and Insomniac has a whole series in mind.
Marvel Entertainment Vice President Jay Ong recently sat down for an interview with VentureBeat to talk about their upcoming partnership with Sony and Insomniac for Spidey’s much anticipated next solo outing on consoles.
The old Spider-Man games on the PS1 were great and one of my favourite games at the time, but between the generations the web-crawler’s games just haven’t been the same. Insomnaic are hoping to change things around and make Spider-Man one of the juggernauts of gaming once again.
Ong stated that Marvel is now focusing on making fewer games with better quality, the new strategy’s star is Spider-Man:
Certainly it’s the beginning of great things to come,
It’s the culmination of two years of effort from my team, following this strategy of bigger, better, fewer games. It’s going to be a tentpole in our console portfolio, but the first of many that we’ll be announcing sometime in the future.
On their partnership with Sony and Insomniac and the future of the IP:
the future of the Spider-Man console games is with Sony and Insomniac.
Spider-Man is in a special place for us. For those of us on the games team it’s a deeply personal choice. This character, for a lot of us, is the reason why we fell in love with Marvel in the first place. It has a special meaning. And certainly from a commercial perspective it’s the most iconic Marvel superhero,
This is certainly great news as personally, we just can’t get enough of the web-slinger. What did you think of the trailer and Spidey’s new costume? Lets discuss in the comments below.
