Insomniac Games is planning to add New Game+ to Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 in early 2024, according to a new tweet.
The team is also working on other notable features that still “require more testing”. Some examples include tendril color swaps, changing the time of day, and replaying missions.
The full list of the big update’s features will be confirmed “closer to its release”. The features that were revealed today partly suggest that Insomniac Games has been focusing on quality of life.

Today’s announcement hints at a fairly large update, using phrases like “among many more” and “just to name a few”.
So, it makes sense that the post is cautiously optimistic about the release window. Insomniac Games left a lot of room for potential delays, if necessary. And they deserve all the time they need.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is one of the biggest games of the year, and even sold 5 million copies in just ten days. So, any update will naturally need a lot of care to meet the same expectations.
Further, fans were concerned at first glance. Many were likely expecting some kind of official delay for any new content, in light of recent events.
Most are glued to Insomniac Games’ socials for an official response regarding the recent ransomware attack.
There have been a variety of leaks. That includes document images which suggest Insomniac Games could be working on a Spider-Verse game, or at least relevant content in Spider-Man 2.
It would certainly make sense for Insomniac Games to actively pursue that angle, which has already found success with the animated films.
Hopefully, the severe ransomware issues will be resolved soon, so that Insomniac Games can focus on development.
