Data miners have discovered intersting lines of code in Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered on PC, which mention a co-op and some kind of multiplayer mode.
Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered just released a couple of days ago and data miners have already started to dig through the code to potentially discover exciting information about the game that Insomniac Games forgot to remove.
Twitter user DniweTamp shared two screenshots of the game files, which reveal lines of text for co-op and multiplayer modes.
"If set and in co-op, Character 2 will see this text," one of the messages says. The other reveals lines from a mode that could be some kind of head-to-head multiplayer with messages like "Miles Morales is the Superior Spider-Man", "Peter Parker is the Superior Spider-Man" and "Superior_Spider-Man_Winner_Message."
This clearly indicates that at some point during the development, Insomniac Games had plans for co-op and multiplayer modes for Spider-Man but sadly, those plans got scrapped.
Some argue that the upcoming Spider-Man 2 could have co-op and multiplayer since sometimes, ports of older games can contain files from the newer games.
Is it possible that Spider-Man 2 includes co-op and multiplayer? Sure it is. Has it been confirmed? No, and until that changes, you should probably take these claims with a huge grain of salt.
As Insomniac Games already said, Spider-Man 2 is first and foremost a single-player game, and we doubt that will change. If, and that's a big if, Spider-Man 2 ever gets multiplayer or co-op modes, these will probably be smaller experiences, where players could compete in one-and-done matches to see who kills more thugs or swings longer with a limited set of spider webs.
Perhaps, data miners find even more proof of co-op and multiplayer when Spider-Man: Miles Morales officially swings to PC later this Fall. Or, Insomniac Games see these data mines and do their best to remove all mentions of co-op and multiplayer from the code.
