Marvel's Spider-Man 2 will not feature co-op mode, developer Insomniac Games confirmed, debunking the recent rumours that suggested a multiplayer aspect could be part of the game.
Insomniac Games are fully focused on delivering an epic single-player action adventure in Marvel's Spider-Man 2 and don't seem to have any plans to implement multiplayer for the launch.
This has been officially confirmed by the developers themselves via the Insomniac Games Twitter. When asked if their highly-anticipated superhero title would feature co-op, Insomniac were pretty clear that Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is a single-player-only game.
"Nope! It is an epic single-player adventure!," was their response.
But why even ask such a question if the first game was single-player only? Well, speculation kicked off this week when Marvel's Spider-Man 2 voice actor Nadji Jeter teased co-op mode , leading players to believe that co-op would be in the game on launch.
It's entirely possible that Jeter was referring to multiple playable characters and not multiplayer, which would make more sense.
But anyways, it's great that Insomniac Games shut down this rumour early on, so we don't have all the speculation leading up to a new trailer, which is expected at the PlayStation showcase.
Having a co-op mode in Spider-Man 2 would certainly make some players happy as swinging around the city with a buddy sounds like a lot of fun but we'll have to wait a little longer for that to happen.
There is perhaps a chance that such a mode would be added in post-launch updates but don't get your hopes up until Sony officially announce it.
Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is expected to launch sometime later in 2023 exclusively on PlayStation 5. Sony confirmed that the game won't be coming to PlayStation 4.
