Long story short, the mocap actor for Miles Morales and Sam from TLOU posted this to his instagram. Got picked up, capped and shared and then took it down. Internet goes wild speculating Spider-Man 2 is in production and will feature Peter and Miles as interchangeable characters (like Peter, Miles, MJ sections).

I would really like Insomniac to try something new, but I guess Spider-Man has been good for them. I feel like they could do something more interesting though. Ah well.

Hopefully we are still gonna use peter and not chipmunk for the majority of the game, his powers were interesting (and pretty op) but his voice was annoying to say the least, also i don't care about him, i grown up with peter parker spiderman.

That's my exact reaction to this, I feel they could do something new and it would be more interesting than SM 2

No doubt. Spider-Man is an insanely successful series and it seems they really enjoy making it

We definitely need a PS5-only Spiderman before they move on to something new. Show me what you can do on that machine!

Nah, the fucking game moved like 20 million units and you are talking about a developer that has no issue literally working on several games at once, it would be STUPID to not do Spiderman 2, even for the new IP you'd like to see.

So they going to make this new IP with no money? Oh less money is better for them? How?

How about this. They talk with Sony to have Bluepoint games expand to do Ratchet 2 and 3 remake, Insomniac works on a new IP AND Spiderman 2.

I think many can get on board with this, because Spiderman 2 doing gangbusters, means that new IP now has more money behind it which helps you more regardless of how you feel about Spiderman 2.

I had no idea it was the same person who wa Sam in The Last of Us, I mean he does actually look like Sam in his photo now that I've seen it.
Sony's first party games seem to use a lot of the same acting talent in different roles and games and I'm usually surprised when I find out because I don't follow social media.

Any other team and I would say BS, but Insomniac? Yea.....that shit is coming fall 2022 lol

Their output is not normal and the quality they are able to maintain is like nothing we've seen in gaming with how they put out games. So if you told me Spiderman 2 was ready to release fall 2022 or spring 2023......I'd believe you easily.

I mean, its not like they have a ton of things to create. Presumably they are staying in new York, in which case they arnt likely to recreate all of new York again, in a completely different way. They will basically just copy and paste the game world again (adding a few things) and possibly changing the textures. That saves an absolute ton of time.

Maybe, but I don't want to be too ignorant to what they are doing. For all we know the elements they are adding isn't a simple copy and paste thing. As in, it could be the same city but different engine, elements, features etc. For all we know, it will be New York again in name only, as in them rebuilding certain things differently. So I I'd expect Spiderman 2 fall 2022 or Spring 2023 because this is Insomniac we are talking about, not because its a sequel in the same city. This team has a crazy output regardless.

So I don't know enough about what they'd do in Spiderman 2, to really say its a copy paste thing.

Can see spiderman being more of a 2023 title, especially considering if horizon gets delayed till 2022 i cant see sony bringing out god of war, gt, horizonz and spiderman in same year

But there was 0% chance of Insomniac not doing a proper sequel. It sold a fuckton and is a hot IP (despite what some posters here claimed before release). So Spider-Man 2 is from the "well, duh"-department, the real news would be that they wouldn't do a sequel.

I'm hoping this is not more of the same and they make a deeper more interesting world. I always felt the Arkham games (City and Knight) suffered from a similar problem. Building a living breathing game world, rather than the open world cinematic take that it is now.

Well i can see miles morales being part of spiderman 2, although i wish they just kept them as two seperate games, as i grew up on spiderman and just want to play as spiderman, although if it was miles or mary jane playable then id deffently take miles, although in the sjw, woke times we living in , can do without the take a knee, or miles meeting a woman and “this is my girlfried” , why do i need to no that i want to just play a game i dont care what sex or what they identify etc in a game, although if they having a playable miles then would love a playable spidergwen or spidergwen dlc

Spiderman 2 - 2023
Spiderman 2: Spider Gwen 2025

I think this will happen Gwen will be the standalone expansion similar to Moles Morales. I expect both Peter and Miles to be playable in 2. Venom Peter will be the new gameplay hook as well as next gen only improvements (faster swinging, more detailed city). I think they could even have a multiplayer mode for Spider Gwen expansion where all 3 characters work together. (Peter, Miles, Gwen).

I think after Spiderman 2 and Spider Gwen inSomniac will start making Spiderman games with other marvel characters like Iron Man. As just making Spiderman only games will start to get repetitive.

Can't blame them, totally expected given the reception and revenue, but just as I said after Sony's acquisition, it'll be a wasted potential if Insomniac will keep making nothing but S-M and R&C games and shuffle between the two, they are Sony's best studio when it comes to gameplay IMO, so it would be nice if they used they creativity on making something new.

Before sony bought them they where also making very good games for vr , so i can deffently see when psvr 2 comes out , insomniac having a game ready to go for it, but yeah ive played all the ratchet games and even though i really liked rift apart i wouldnt mind leaving it a long time before playing another, i want insomniac to make sunset overdrive 2 or try there hand at something new, but can deffently see insomniac doing a spiderman 2 or 3

I don`t think anybody did not expect a sequel after the success of the first game.

A true PS5 only Spiderman sounds really good to me. Let me see that performance headroom they claim to still have had with Ratchet in action.

Huh?

Sir...Spiderman as a game, as they made it last gen is NEW, to really be asking for yet another new thing is imho a bit much.

Keep in mind, for all we know they already have a plan for a new IP. They started the PS4 generation with Ratchet and ended with Spiderman.

For all you know they start PS5 with Spiderman and Ratchet and end with new IP. So I see nothing here that argues "wasted potential", shit I'd say its wasted if they didn't make a trilogy of Spiderman.

So they are known to do new IP, like every generation.

PS1 Spyro.
PS2 Ratchet
PS3 Resistance (and....sigh, Fuze lol)
PS4 and XONE, Spiderman, Sunset Overdrive, Stormland, The Unspoken etc

Sir...I see no evidence that they will suddenly just keep making nothing but just those 2 IP, but for PS5 even if they did, I'd say they have earned that right to settle into 2 properties until they feel like moving on. Sony is one of the few publishers that gives great freedom for developers to move on to new IP, so I feel Sony and Insomniac are a great fit and I see nothing here even remotely to say anything is being wasted.

But SM is still a relatively fresh game, and MM was released just yesterday, it would be good to give it a rest for a bit, but seems they're already on 3rd SM title... So hopefully the team that just released R&C is indeed onto something new.

I disagree, it being fresh is just the reason to strike while the iron is hot and continue the series.

3rd title? I'd hardly call what Miles Morales is as a legit second title, its a nice side game and a welcome addition.

So hopefully the team that just released R&C is indeed onto something new.

True. I have no issue with that as I don't feel this needs to be an either or. They can have one half of the team work on a new IP and the other half work on Spiderman 2.

Bottom of the (biscuit) barrel.
I've been enjoying their post-credit sequences for both Spider-Man and Miles. It's fun that they took those from the movie and if we're already in pre-production then hopefully we don't have to wait too long for some more Insomniac goodness.

If there is anyone I trust to deliver a fantastic sequel Insomniac are right up there.

Though I do wonder how they're going to keep the Spidey formula fresh, there's only so much web-swinging you can do before you burn out on it.

There's a black and a white actor for spider man. Guess which one gets the nickname chipmunk?

Spider Man 2 isn't surprising.

Does anyone know if this says anything about how far along they are in production? Voice acting is usually done near the end from what I heard. But I imagine they probably need mo-cap to create animations fairly early on.

Why do so many people believe SpiderGwen will be coming.

Does she exist in this universe, isnt Gwen Stacy just a normal girl in the game universe?
She aint dead yet(?) for her to be replaced by SpiderGwen either.

Venom Spiderman is more likely than SpiderGwen.
Hell id actually even expect clone saga to come before SpiderGwen.

Ashamed because i find his voice annoying?! Lol dude read some topics when they showed the trailers before the game launched, a lot of people was laughing his ass off because of his voice acting.

We are not on reeee dude, we can laugh about this stuff here, search your woke points in another place.
