Marvel’s Spider-Man 2: Swinging In

We asked the developers at Insomniac Games what aspect of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 they were most excited for players to experience. Here’s what five key members of the team shared with us.

Jacinda Chew, Senior Art Director

“I’m excited for people to experience our story as it unfolds via gameplay. Although we’ve been teasing a lot, there is still much more we haven’t revealed. I’ve spent a lot of time working on everything Venom and symbiote, so there will be many interesting visuals that will accompany the symbiote story, especially since the symbiote can take on and create so many different forms due to its nature.”

Mike Fitzgerald, Technical Director

“I could list any number of little bits of this game, from exhilarating action sequences, to hilarious Spidey quips, to emotional story moments that hit me right in the gut. But nothing beats that moment when you run straight up the side of a tall skyscraper and launch yourself up over the edge to see a massive city laid out before you, full of big adventure, little details, collectibles, Marvel easter eggs, and a dramatic Spider-Man story just waiting to be uncovered.”

Jon Paquette, Senior Narrative Director

“I’m honestly just excited for players to pick up where [they] left off with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. There are many new things in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, but a lot of familiar faces as well. And the stakes have never been higher. The experience is just so much fun to play—I can’t wait for people to get the controllers in their hands and jump back into this epic world and story!”

Ryan Smith, Senior Game Director

“I’m most excited for players to go on an epic journey with two Spider-Heroes. Whether it’s switching between heroes while exploring an expanded Marvel’s New York, upgrading and customizing Miles’ and Peter’s unique abilities or shared tech, or the high-stakes story that will challenge our heroes like never before—having both Miles and Peter together is a huge part of this game, and I can’t wait for everyone to experience it.”

Bryan Intihar, Senior Creative Director

“Spider-Man has been my favorite superhero since the days I wore Underoos; there’s just something about the character—whether it’s the suit, the heart and humor, the relatability and, of course, the swinging—that makes the character such a fan favorite. And now we get to put people back in the mask and be not one but two Spider-Heroes, each with their own story and abilities, in a massive world that really encourages more exploration and discovery than ever before.”
