Marvel's Spider-Man PS5 PlayStation 5 1

Wow! Marvel’s Spider-Man is far and away the biggest series in Sony’s stable, with Insomniac Games’ two superhero themed titles combining to sell 33 million copies, as of 15th May. That’s a truly jaw-dropping number: we’re talking peak Nintendo and Rockstar numbers here. Remember that there have only been two titles in the franchise thus far – Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales – and they’ve been exclusive to just the PS5 and PS4. They’ll launch on PC later this year and will presumably sell many millions more copies there.

Spider-Man is, of course, the hottest superhero on the planet – and he’s recently seen his popularity soar once more thanks to Tom Holland’s take on the character. But it’s important to remember that Activision was making Spider-Man games for years, and they never came close to matching these numbers – that’s testament to both great marketing from Sony and superb execution from Insomniac Games. We can’t wait for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
