Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is a highly anticipated PlayStation 5 exclusive that is set to blow the roof off of the video game community when it releases later this year. Everyone knows just how good Marvel’s Spider-Man’s solo adventure truly was and many have wondered if Insomniac Games would try to change things up a bit and add a little co-op game mode in the sequel.
The reason behind this speculation is that back in September of 2022, Nadji Jeter was asked about Marvel’s Spider Man 2 supporting co-op gameplay. His response was rather interesting as he stated, “I don’t know if it’s been announced or not, but I think so.” This response obviously sparked a lot of discussion in the community. For those who are unaware, Nadji Jeter is the voice actor who plays Miles Morales. For someone linked so closely to Spider-Man video games, a comment like this is taken very seriously. Was Nadji Jeter right about his statement, or was the question just misunderstood?
Insomniac Games responded to a user on Twitter who asked the question on if Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is going to be a co-op game? Their response was, “Nope! It is an epic single-player adventure!” The fact that this answer has come straight from the source gives us a clear idea that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 doesn’t plan on being a co-op game.
If there is anything to learn from this statement it is that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 doesn’t need co-op to be a great game. Just take a look at how great the first game was as a single-player experience.
No release date has been confirmed yet, but we do know that the game should be arriving before the end of 2023. Earlier this year, the release window for the video game was narrowed down to Fall 2023 and Tony Todd (voice actor of Venom for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2) seems to think that Sony is targeting a September release date as well. That would be perfect for the suggested Fall 2023 release window.
