Insomniac Games has responded to fans on Twitter to shoot down speculation of Marvel's Spider-Man 2 featuring co-op. Earlier in the day, Miles Morales voice actor Nadji Jeter appeared to tease the PS5 sequel would feature co-op play across his web-slinger and Peter Parker in a panel at SacAinme. However, this isn't actually the case.
"It is an epic single-player adventure," Insomniac Games explains.
Of course, this does not rule out the possibility of playing as multiple Spider-Men across the campaign. Some fans have prophesied how you may be able to switch characters on the fly ala Grand Theft Auto V, or call in backup during combat encounters. Off the back of PS5, PS4 title Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, it would come as a surprise if the other web-slinger isn't playable whatsoever.
There's a chance all will be revealed during the PlayStation Showcase this Wednesday, where Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is expected to feature prominently, with gameplay and a potential 2023 release date. What sort of showing do you expect? Just don't wish for co-op in the comments below.
