Morris will serve as a writer on Spider-Man 2 PS5
Morris joined Spider-Man 2‘s dev team in the capacity of a writer. In response to her tweet, fans expressed their desire for new information about the highly-anticipated title. Spider-Man 2 is currently expected to release in 2023 so don’t expect Insomniac Games to have much to show off anytime soon. The studio is still on a hiring spree, but that said, it’s known for churning out high-quality releases in quick succession so we might see a little bit of gameplay sometime this year.
Opinion: Spider-Man 2 will be a PS5 system-seller
Zarmena writes… A Marvel property, a popular superhero, Insomniac Games – mix all three well and you get a system-seller. Spider-Man is the biggest exclusivity deal any console manufacturer could have struck, and it’s already worked wonders for Sony. The first release sold gangbusters and its Miles Morales standalone expansion is one of the best-selling PS5 games. The wait until 2023 will be a tough one.
