Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is an inevitability. A nailed-on sequel to 2018's Marvel's Spider-Man, developer Insomniac Games is all but guaranteed to be working on the PlayStation 5-bound follow up as we sit here and type this. It's interesting, then, that Kinda Funny's Imran Khan apparently knows quite a bit about the supposed sequel.
Speaking on the latest Kinda Funny Gamescast, Khan says, "I know too much about [Marvel's Spider-Man 2], so I can't speculate too much. I think a Spider-Man 2 will come sooner than we think." Khan also mentions a "Christmas 2021" release window earlier in the video.
Is holiday 2021 sooner than we think? That would mean the game is set to launch roughly three years after its predecessor, which is a fairly quick turnaround. That said, we have to imagine that Insomniac moved straight over to the next title as soon as Marvel's Spider-Man was complete, leaving only a smaller team behind in order to further support the game with updates and DLC. Holiday 2021 certainly doesn't seem impossible, even if it is reasonably fast.
With the PS5 launching late next year, its eventual lineup of exclusive games isn't difficult to predict — especially where first party sequels are concerned. Alongside Marvel's Spider-Man 2, God of War 2 and Horizon: Zero Dawn 2 are equally inevitable — but Khan's wording definitely makes it seem as though he's got some insider knowledge on the former.
