Spider-Man PS4 Will Release in First Half of 2018


Many PlayStation 4 gamers were disappointed to find out Sony is only planning to release a handful of exclusive titles in 2017 and is saving many of the games shown at this year’s E3 event – most notably Spider-Man – for 2018. Fortunately, thanks to a new revelation from Shawn Layden, gamers can rest assured Spider-Man and the other 2018 exclusives shown during E3 will be coming during the first half of next year.

Layden opened up about these and many other details while discussing the results of E3 an interview with The Telegraph. Over the course of the discussion, Layden was asked about why the team only showed a few games set to release in 2017 and showed off most games not coming until next year. Layden’s response was simply that 2017 is already half-way over, and that the games coming in 2018 will launch earlier than later. Layden said:

“And the stuff coming in 2018, all of that is coming in the first half of the year, so. Is it in the next 12 to 13 months? Most likely. So.”

Marvel Games Promises More 'Epic' Games Like Spider-Man

This is bittersweet news for those who have been looking forward to the PS4-exclusive Spider-Man title, which nabbed a fair amount of attention thanks to a new trailer and handful of details revealed during E3. Just a few months ago, a Marvel VP told PS4 gamers to look forward to the Spider-Man release in 2017, so the delay is unfortunate. That said, it’s good to know Sony is looking to release the game when it’s ready.

Granted, there is a bit of a disclaimer in Layden’s words. By saying “most likely” at the end of his 2018 comments, it means Spider-Man, or any other 2018 planned titles, may not release until later in the year or even the following year. In the world of game development, it seems there is always a good chance a title will be delayed at least once, if not multiple times. Of course, gamers generally don’t want a game to release until it’s ready, but the constant delays can be exhausting.

On the plus side, gamers received some very intriguing details about Spider-Man that will undoubtedly continue building hype for the web-slinging hero on PS4. Spider-Man will feature classic villains, alternative costumes in the game, Peter Parker gameplay, and a map that’s six times larger than the Sunset Overdrive map.

Sony Trailer Brings Upcoming PS4 Exclusives to Life - Spider-Man PS4 game

All-in-all, it seems PS4 gamers have a lot to look forward to with Spider-Man, even if they have to wait another year to get the game. Hopefully, the title doesn’t experience any additional delays between now and then.

Spider-Man is expected to release exclusively on PlayStation 4 in the first half of 2018.
