A new Spider-Man 2 leak has suggested Insomniac once planned to include the Life Foundation symbiotes in the video game sequel, but could they instead be part of the planned Venom spin-off? Check it out...

Spider-Man 2 debuted to positive reviews last year, though many gamers were disappointed by a surprisingly brief story and large, but disappointingly lifeless, open world.

While fans were able to take control of Venom for a battle with Kraven the Hunter, the character's role was smaller than expected and the final act was deemed too similar to 2008's Spider-Man: Web of Shadows

Insomniac Games was hit by a huge leak last year, with details about its Wolverine video game - and even plans for a Venom spin-off - all finding their way online sooner than they'd have liked. 

Now, one gamer has taken a deep dive into the PC build of Spider-Man 2 to unearth scrapped plans for the Life Foundation Symbiotes to make an appearance. It's hard to figure out how they'd have factored into the version of the sequel we've all played, so they were presumably ditched from the story relatively early on. 

Still, getting to battle Phage, Lasher, Agony, and Riot would have been a blast and, in the final version, Scream was the only one to appear when that symbiote briefly bonded with Mary Jane Watson. 

It's also claimed that Venom once appeared much earlier in the game, with his arc revolving around "separation anxiety." As this information is taken out of context, piecing all this together is easier said than done; however, we'd be shocked if these ideas aren't utilised in Insomniac's planned Venom game. 

There's no word on whether that will be set during the events of Spider-Man 2 or whether a new host will bond with the alien symbiote for a new adventure which sets the stage for a third instalment (which will likely shift the focus away from Peter Parker and to Miles Morales and Cindy Moon, a.k.a. Silk). 

You can take a closer look at Spider-Man 2's scrapped symbiotes in the X posts below (via GameFragger.com).

Spider-Men, Peter Parker and Miles Morales, return for an exciting new adventure in the critically acclaimed Marvel’s Spider-Man franchise for PS5. Swing, jump and utilize the new Web Wings to travel across Marvel’s New York, quickly switching between Peter Parker and Miles Morales to experience different stories and epic new powers, as the iconic villain Venom threatens to destroy their lives, their city and the ones they love.

Spider-Man 2 is now available to purchase worldwide.

@DrReedRichards - Please be good.

Trailer looks awesome. Not sure I like the Azula casting. She doesn't have the narrow facial features of the anime which takes away from her "evil" look. I could be wrong though, have to watch and see.

They saw the success of Miles Morales and held back a load of content for the not-DLC “spin off” game.

The game was pretty good. I had a lot of fun beating it but that venom shit was ass. I was hoping with Tony Todd coming in they’d lean more into the horror aspect of it for Spider-Man where venom knows everything about him and spidey can’t sense him while swinging

This game would have been cool if maybe they had Venom hunting Peter half the game really borrowing from the initial Dave Michelinie/McFarlane run. Eddie was basically a stalker but it was really interesting. Overall, they diluted the symbiotes in the comics and movies so much that it takes away what made Venom special to begin with. Even his sick sense of morals (doesnt like killing innocents) is all kind of washed away now in any format hes in. They could have really done something with that here.

I loved that game. The call back to Web of Shadows just made it all the more fun.

Only problems are the lack of post game things to do.
I’m guessing they will save a lot of stuff for the Venom game I heard they’re planning.
