The news of the Sony tests conducted on the PS5 devkit with Marvel’s Spider-Man, reported by the same Mark Cerny during his now-famous interview with Wired, could only re-ignite the rumors on the development of the second chapter of the blockbuster free roaming by Insomniac Games.
In discussing the PlayStation 5 hardware specifications and the advantages guaranteed by using an SSD hard drive to replace an old mechanical hard drive, the US designer and programmer reported that Sony is using Marvel’s Spider-Man to drive performance tests on the development kits of the next generation of the Black Monolith.
As emphasized by various employees in the sector and the members of the community who are commenting on this news on the main sites, social networks and gaming forums, the choice to perform tests on the PS5 devkits using a video game that, despite being a PS4 exclusive, was not made from a development house in the subsidiary subsidiary of Sony Interactive Entertainment, it turns out to be decidedly unusual .
The start of work on Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 on PlayStation 5, therefore, could represent the perfect justification for such tests: the creative director of Insomniac Games, at the end of January, helped to feed the rumors reporting that he was busy on the draft of an unspecified story. And you, would you be happy to see Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 star of the PS5 launch lineup along with (potential) cross-gen titles like Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us Part 2?
