Insomniac Games has finally announced the launch of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 game for the PlayStation 5. The title will be a sequel to Marvel’s Spider-Man (2018) and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales (2020).

The game is said to have been designed from the ground up for the PS5 console and is said to offer improvised visuals, faster web swinging, and near-instant character switching.
