Insomniac Games has pushed the release date for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 New Game Plus mode into 2024. The studio says that while it wanted to deliver the free update before the festive season, the patch requires more testing. With Western studios closing down for the December break, development on the update will likely pause for a short time too.
The good news is that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will get the New Game Plus mode in early 2024 alongside some other cool features. Insomniac Games says the patch will also add the ability to change the time of day, replay missions and swap tendril colours.
It sounds as if Insomniac Games is gearing up to release quite a large patch for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. An update which will add New Game Plus and some other cool features. We’ll know exactly what is in the patch closer to its launch in early 2024.
Keep in mind that “early 2024” doesn’t mean within the first few months. We will likely get the Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 patch within the first few weeks of January at this rate.
The official delay statement from Insomniac Games read:
We have some news about the next game update for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2,” it wrote. “We know players have been eagerly awaiting features such as New Game+ and Audio Descriptions, among many more. We have been working vigilantly on these features and require more testing to ensure the quality is up to our standards. We are now targeting Early 2024 for the next game update, and we’ll have a feature-complete list closer to its release. We’ve heard your feedback and will be adding some highly requested features, including the ability to change the time of day, swap tendril colors, and replay missions – just to name a few! We can’t wait to share more with you in the future. In the meantime, we appreciate your patience as our team works to finish our next update for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2!”
Insomniac Games is currently dealing with a reported leak at the studio which came about from a hack. A hacker claimed to have accessed the studio’s personal information and is holding it ransom. The information includes details of the studio’s next game, Marvel’s Wolverine as well as content on Marvel’s Spider-Man 3.
Neither Sony nor Insomniac Games have yet to comment on the hack.
