I have seen a couple of games this generation launching exclusively on PS5, but a few months later, a PS4 port of that same game was announced. With Insomniac Games’ massive success with Spider-Man on PS4 and Spider-Man Miles Morales releasing on PS4 alongside a PS5 version when it came out in 2020, will Spider-Man 2 release on PS4, Xbox, and PC? Or will Spider-Man 2 purely be a PS5 exclusive?
Is Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 on PS4, PC, Xbox?
The big answer is no, Spider-Man 2 is not on PS4, PC, and Xbox Series X|S. Insomniac Games officially confirmed that Spider-Man 2 is exclusively made for PS5. Insomniac stated that the game will take advantage of the “capabilities of the PS5 console’s SSD” and that it’s “only possible on a PlayStation 5 console.”
The PS4, while still a decent device today, does not have the hardware to keep up with the demand of Spider-Man 2. It’s further explained in the PlayStation Blog post that highlights the features only the PS5 can provide, such as 3D audio, the DualSense’s haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, improved textures, lighting, and more. Since the game is developed by a PlayStation first-party studio, Spider-Man 2 will never come to the Xbox platform.
Don’t keep your hopes up if you’re waiting for Spider-Man 2 on PS4 and Xbox Series X|S. I highly recommend buying a PS5 if you want to play Spider-Man 2 or wait for Sony to officially announce the game’s PC version sometime in the future.
