Here’s what Insomniac Games Community Manager Bryan Intihar posted on the US PlayStation Blog:

From our first meeting, Marvel, Spider-Man and Insomniac have felt like a match made in heaven. So much so that for the first time in Insomniac’s 22-year history, we’re working on an IP that didn’t originate in-house. We love building big games, with incredible gameplay, deep stories, and beautiful graphics. Spider-Man is one of the most iconic and well-known characters in the world, and we’re thrilled to be given the responsibility to create a brand-new, authentic Spider-Man story. Nope, this isn’t the same Spider-Man you’ve met before, nor is our game based on the upcoming movie. This is a more seasoned Peter Parker who’s more masterful at fighting big crime in New York City. At the same time, he’s struggling to balance his absurdly chaotic personal life and career. All while nine million New Yorkers depend on him for their safety… no pressure indeed.

This collaboration also allows us to quickly return to action developing on PS4. Having released Ratchet & Clank, we feel confident in our ability to create a showpiece for the console. And we’re downright giddy bringing Spidey’s acrobatic abilities, improvisation, and web-slinging to life. But we also want to introduce new elements that players have never experienced with Spider-Man, ranging from traversing with parkour and utilizing the environment, to new combat and blockbuster set-pieces.

We can’t wait to share more about our Spider-Man game in the months to come.

Original Story:

During its E3 2016 press conference, Sony announced a new Spider-Man game exclusively to the PlayStation 4, which oddly, doesn’t have a title or is called #SpiderManPS4. 

In development by the studio behind Ratchet & Clank franchise, Insomniac Games, Spider-Man sees the webcrawler once again in New York taking down villains and criminals. However, this time, his costume has a bit more white in it than in previous incarnations.

Official trailer description states:

Marvel and Insomniac Games team up to create a brand-new, authentic Spider-Man story exclusively for PlayStation 4. Take control of an experienced Peter Parker who is more masterful at fighting crime.

Once we know more info, like the official name, we’ll be sure to let you know. Check back in a bit once we get the official trailer.
