MARVEL'S SPIDER-MAN PS4 Developer Insomniac Games Acquired By Sony; Essentially Guaranteeing A Sequel

Marvel's Spider-Man developer Insomniac Games has joined PlayStation's Worldwide Studios family. Sony's acquisition of the studio almost certainly guarantees a sequel to the critically acclaimed PS4 game.

A sequel to Insomniac Games' critically acclaimed PlayStation 4 title Marvel's Spider-Man has long been expected, but not yet announced. Now with confirmation that Sony has acquired the developer, a sequel to the best-selling superhero game in the United States is almost certainly on the way.

Earlier today, Sony announced that Insomniac Games is the newest addition to PlayStation's Worldwide Studios.


Insomniac has been a longtime collaborator with Sony, dating all the way back to the late 90s with the release of Disruptor and multiple Spyro games for the original PlayStation. The developer is also well-known for their PlayStation-exclusive franchises Ratchet & Clank and Resistance.

But what truly made Insomniac a must-have studio for Sony was their work on Marvel's Spider-Man, the critically acclaimed and commercially successful PlayStation 4-exclusive title. Marvel's Spider-Man sold 3.3 million units in its first three days available in the United States, making it the fastest-selling first-party game release in Sony's history. In July of this year, it swung past another milestone, topping Batman: Arkham City as the best-selling superhero game of all time in the United States.

Suffice to say, a sequel to the game was almost already guaranteed before today's announcement, but his acquisition pretty much seals the deal.

A message from Insomniac Games founder and CEO Ted Price regarding the acquisition can be found on the developer's website.
