Spider-Man PS4 Exclusive Game Launches in 2017, Says Marvel

The VP of Marvel and Executive Editor of Digital Media, Ryan Penagos, said that he looks forward to Spider-Man on PlayStation 4 in 2017 during an official Marvel Thwip! show.

According to VP and Executive Editor of Marvel Digital Media Ryan Penagos, Insomniac Games' Spider-Man is set to launch in 2017. Penagos is one of the hosts of Marvel's THWIP! online variety show, which frequently gives previews of upcoming Marvel media. While he was closing out a segment, Penagos revealed what fans can expect to see in 2017. Besides mentioning Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, Penagos surprised everyone and said Spider-Man hits PlayStation 4 in 2017.

Marvel, Sony, and Insomniac have previously all remained quiet on the topic of Spider-Man's release date. Many had speculated that the 3D action-adventure game would be scheduled for 2018, though there's a little bit of evidence against that. Insomniac had implied on Twitter that 2018 wasn't a certainty and a Best Buy ad had previously pointed towards 2017, though it's not related to this summer's Spider-Man: Homecoming film. This is the first time someone officially associated with the game posted a word that points to 2017, however.

With that said, nothing should be treated as official just yet. Although Ryan Penagos is effectively an official PR representative for Marvel and would definitely be knowledgeable on any tentative release date for Spider-Man, anyone can get carried away when doing a live show. All he wanted to say was perhaps there's more information on Spider-Man coming soon. Either that or he thinks it's common knowledge that Spider-Man is a 2017 game, which means news should be coming soon. Sony will probably want to clarify after all this.

Spider-Man is an exclusive action-adventure game for the PlayStation 4 in development by Insominac Games on their Ratchet & Clank engine. More news on the game's release date coming in the months ahead.
