Insomniac Games is staffing up as work intensifies on the hotly anticipated PlayStation 5 sequel, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. And in an exciting move, the Burbank studio has recruited Brittney M. Morris, the writer of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales’ prequel novel, Wings of Fury. This was a very well received book which launched alongside the game in 2020.
“Miles has a lot going on. He’s moved across Marvel’s New York to East Harlem, an unfamiliar neighbourhood, is coming to terms with the loss of his father, and there’s the small matter of being bitten by a genetically modified spider and gaining superpowers,” the blurb teases. “After a mix-up with the law whilst trying to stop a robbery, Miles questions what it means to be a hero when people are ready to believe the worst in you.”
Morris’ familiarity with Insomniac Games’ take on the Spider-Man universe, as well as its characters, will make her a great addition to the team. This is undoubtedly the biggest game in production for the PS5 right now, so we can’t wait to learn more about the project throughout the course of the year.
