Is the PS5 Getting a Spider-Verse Game? Fans Think So 1

Intense but unconfirmed speculation suggests Insomniac may be working on a Spider-Verse game, influenced by Sony’s recent batch of animated movies. Unverified information being shared online, purportedly part of a recent high-profile data breach, alleges that the title is in development – although we’ve been unable to corroborate anything, and the information is extremely loose.

We know that the Spider-Man from Insomniac’s titles has appeared in the movies, and therefore is connected to the overarching Spider-Verse universe. Without getting too deep into spoilers, there are also references to the likes of Spider-Man 2099 in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. None of this confirms anything, of course, and this does largely feel like fan theorising right now.

We know Insomniac is working on a multiplayer game, and one common theory we’ve seen shared online is that this could be some kind of Spider-Verse-style title, where everyone assumes a different Spider-Man in the game. While we like the overall idea, it’s merely speculation, and there’s nothing from these so-called leaks to suggest that’s the case.

So, there’s a lot of talk taking place, with very little evidence. Obviously, the outstanding sales numbers of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 suggest Insomniac won’t be leaving the series behind. In addition to New Game+ in the New Year, we suspect there’ll be DLC – and potentially even another spin-off, like Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Spider-Verse, though? We’re going to need more evidence.
