Insomniac’s Next Spider-Man Game Will Bring Venom to the Party

Playstation Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 to Feature Kraven, Venom

In a press release that dropped following the teaser’s debut, Sony announced that Candyman’s Tony Todd is set to voice Spider-Man 2‘s Venom alongside Yuri Lowenthal and Nadji Jeter, who will reprise their respective roles as Peter and Miles. Spider-Man: Miles creative director Bryan Intihar and game director Ryan Smith both returned to oversee the new game.

According to the press release, Spider-Man 2 will see both series develop new skills and abilities, as well as acquire a variety of new suits as part of a story that pits them against at least one of Spider-Man’s most iconic foes who’s yet to make the jump to Insomniac’s games. Though the teaser only provides but so much in terms of the game’s story, both Peter and Miles’ being featured together as Spider-Man strongly implies that you’ll be able (or perhaps have to) play as both characters in order to fully complete the game. Whether this means that Miles and Peter will have alternate paths meant to enhance the game replayability or whether Spider-Man 2 will incorporate some interesting two-player game mechanics remains to be seen.

Currently, there is no scheduled release date for Spider-Man 2, but more information about the game is sure to be released in the coming months.
