Players instantly fell in love with the new Spider-Man game series after the original's release in 2018. It was revealed during the PlayStation Showcase in September 2021 that the series will continue on to Spider-Man 2, but players may not be excited about the wait.
During the game's trailer (shown below), plenty of crucial information was revealed. From the looks of it, it's going to cross between multiple universes, have even more robust fighting abilities than its predecessor, and feature Venom as the main villain. However, as far as its release, Sony only revealed the year: 2023. No specific date, no month, and not a general frame—just 2023.
This unfortunately means that we may be forced to wait around two years for the game's full release. While this isn't a surprise for a major blockbuster hit, it's undoubtedly still frustrating for those of us who were hooked after the phenomenal original entry.
If you are hyped for the game's release and need to fill in the time until you finally get to play, be sure to check out the trailer for Spider-Man 2 revealed at the PlayStation Showcase 2021 below!
