Insomniac Games Has Expanded to Over 500 Employees

PlayStation first-party studio Insomniac Games has apparently expanded to over 500 employees ahead of the release of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. The anticipated superhero sequel is expected to arrive in late 2023 but it looks like Insomniac Games has bolstered its work force to work on multiple projects including Marvel’s Wolverine, the next superhero game the studio is developing after Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.

As reported by PlayStation Universe, Insomniac Games’ LinkedIn profile was recently updated to show that 520 employees currently worked at the studio. So far, the developer has released two AAA games and one remaster since the PS5’s launch in 2020: Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. Needless to say, Insomniac Games is extremely hard-working and it makes sense to beef up the staff.

At this point, both Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Marvel’s Wolverine are in development at Insomniac Games with reports of another secret project also in the works. The developer has been quite consistent in its work output this generation. PlayStation Studios encompasses several first-party companies but Insomniac might be one Sony’s golden studios right now, especially on the verge of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2‘s launch which is expected to be one of the biggest releases of the year.

Sony officially acquired Insomniac Games in 2019. Before then, the studio worked on several games including the Ratchet & Clank franchise, Spyro the Dragon, Sunset Overdrive and the Resistence series. Collectively, Insomniac’s games have sold more than 70 million copies with its biggest sellers being 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, both selling 33 million copies combined as of May 2022.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is scheduled to release sometime this year exclusively for PS5, though previous reports suggest that it’s targeting a September 2023 release window. Hopefully we’ll hear more about the exciting sequel soon through a rumoured PlayStation showcase.
