Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is scheduled for release in October and is undoubtedly the most eagerly awaited of the upcoming PS5 titles. Due to the success of Miles Morales, the PS5 launch spin-off, and Marvel’s Spider-Man, Insomniac has set a high bar for its sequel.
Peter Parker and his younger apprentice will play the lead roles in this planned Marvel video game. They will be seen returning to New York City to fight against a new threat posed by Kraven the Hunter, one of Spider-Man’s most recognizable rogues gallery foes.
There is much to delve into, including new parts of New York City to discover, a new set of talents and abilities to use, and a particular Symbiote suit that puts the two Spider-Men’s relationship under strain.
So read on to learn everything we currently know about Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 for the PlayStation 5.
Marvel Spider-Man 2 PS5 Release Date
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will officially be released on October 20 for the PlayStation 5. Creative director Bryan Intihar noted he is “very confident” that Insomniac will meet that deadline after announcing Summer Game Fest.

Intihar also displayed some of the game’s concept drawings, one of which had Miles and Peter facing battle against Venom. Don’t anticipate Eddie Brock to be this Spider-Man villain’s alter ego if they are sporting the Symbiote. As stated by Intohar, the company sought to tell a unique tale that would defy expectations.
What Platforms Will Marvel Spider-Man 2 Be on?
Miles Morales arrived on both PS5 and PS4 simultaneously when Marvel’s Spider-Man was first launched on PS4, and later on PS5 in an improved edition, but for the sequel, the last-gen is being abandoned.
There is currently no information on a PC version of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, which will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive. In August 2022, Marvel’s Spider-Man debuted on the PC through Steam; Miles Morales followed in November of the same year.
Marvel Spider-Man 2 Gameplay
Despite having comparable spider-like speed, strength, and agility, Miles Morales and Peter Parker have very different superpowers. Marvel’s Spider-Man established the framework for aerial warfare and web-slinging, but whereas Parker had access to various tools, Morales stood out for his bio-electric abilities.
The revelation of the game’s three distinct skill trees—one for Miles and Peter and a third that they both share—was one of the new modifications mentioned by Insomniac.
According to game director Ryan Smith, this was done to give the characters “a sense of familiarity” while providing them with special skills. Miles still possesses his distinctive bio-electric capabilities, which enable him to strike hard or activate optical camouflage.
Still, in contrast to Peter, who has a new set of symbiote-enhanced powers, Peter is much more savage. The Symbiote is connected to Peter, giving him unique and distinctive attacking skills that mix his newly discovered anger with sticky tentacles and painful takedowns.
“The Symbiote punch is gonna really impact a single target [and] stick them to walls, whereas the Symbiote strike launches a bunch of enemies up in the air. And so that’s something that lets you shift gears in Spider-Man combat,” Smith said to IGN.
It’s something that the Symbiote allows us to contribute that we previously lacked. Intihar gave Peter finishing moves, defining the Symbiote as sheer force, strength, and aggression that is “borderline brutal.”
