A quick look on social media reveals that a few lucky members of the press have received Spider-Man 2, so now might be a good time to be a little more careful online if you're hoping to go in unspoiled next month!
Excitement among fans continues to build and while Insomniac is now expected to soon shift focus to its Wolverine game, there's already buzz surrounding a possible Spider-Man 3. There have been rumours about a Venom spin-off, but a threequel has to happen eventually, right?
Talking to io9 (via GameFragger.com), 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 vague 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 spin-off 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.
We'll hopefully have more details to share with you soon but, for now, you can watch the full-length version of that recent Spider-Man 2 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."
"Wield Peter's symbiote abilities and Miles' explosive bio-electric powers in battle against new and iconic Marvel Super Villains," it continues, "including an original take on a symbiote-infused Venom, the ruthless Kraven the Hunter, the volatile Lizard, and more from the Marvel Rogues' Gallery."
