It would appear that Insomniac Games is actively working on the follow-up to Marvel's Spider-Man. A sequel to the hit 2018 game has yet to be officially confirmed by Sony, but a recent tweet from a developer at Insomniac implies that it's full steam ahead for the webhead's next adventure.
Alex Zemke, an advanced senior animator at Insomniac, recently took to Twitter to tease his next project. Retweeting a (well-earned) Insomniac Games appreciation post celebrating the launch of Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart in the PlayStation 5's first year, Zemke joked there was no time to rest, as his next project beckoned.
Before we go on, be sure to take a look at some of our favourite Spider-Man games below!
"For clarity: I did not work on Rift Apart," Zemke wrote. "I worked on Miles Morales, and then moved on to [REDACTED]. Insomniac never sleeps! That's why the name!"
"REDACTED" could of course be any number of things, but given Zemke's experience on Spidey and the compete and utter inevitability for a sequel, it's unlikely to be anything else. I'll admit this one isn't much of a surprise, given the huge commercial and critical success of both Marvel's Spider-Man and Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Still, it's nice to hear that the game is in active development - that means it's one step closer to being in our lives, after all.

Take this with a pinch of salt for now, of course. Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is likely to be a fair way off, even if development is in full swing (pun intended). Still, with Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart really showing us what the PlayStation 5 can do, I can't stop thinking about how good a fully new-gen Spidey game is gonna look. Here's hoping we learn something official sooner rather than later.
