After months of rumours and speculation that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 was going to feature co-op elements due to both Peter Parker and Miles Morales being in the game, developer Insomniac Games has now debunked them. The highly anticipated sequel will be a traditional single-player game like its predecessors, meaning players probably won’t get to team up with each other as the Spider-Men and take part in jolly co-operation.
Responding to a fan on Twitter asking if Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will feature co-op gameplay in any way, Insomniac Games replied with, “Nope! It is an epic single-player adventure!”, putting to rest the frequent rumours that the game, on the basis of potentially having two playable Spider-Men, will have multiplayer.

If both Peter and Miles are completely playable in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 (which is likely), then it begs the question how Insomniac is going to juggle the progression of each character. Most fans seem to be pointing to Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, another Insomniac game where the player controlled both Ratchet and new protagonist, Rivet. In the game, progression is shared across both protagonists regardless of which character the player is using at the time. This means that Ratchet and Rivet can level up equally alongside each other.
A similar scenario might be in place for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 where progress will be shared for Peter and Miles, meaning you won’t have to invest time into playing as both if you favour using one hero over the other, though we’ll just have to wait and see how Insomniac implements these systems in the full game.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is heavily rumoured to appear at the upcoming PlayStation Showcase ahead of its fall 2023 release date which, according to Bloomberg journalist Jason Schreier, is reportedly on track to release this September exclusively for PS5.
