Insomniac confirms no co-op for Spider-Man 2

We've known for a while now that Insomniac was at one point considering the possibility of adding co-op to its Spider-Man game. With Spider-Man 2 set to be more of a team-up effort between Peter Parker and Miles Morales, the idea of co-op gameplay has come up again, but Insomniac has now confirmed it is firmly committed to single-player for the time being. 

Comments from voice actor, Nadji Jeter, who voices Miles Morales in the game, seemed to indicate that co-op might make its way into Spider-Man 2. Before that, datamining efforts found references to co-op and multiplayer within the game files for the first game. Due to this evidence, fans did begin asking Insomniac about this on Twitter and sure enough, the studio has replied to set the record straight.

Insomniac says that there won't be co-op multiplayer in Spider-Man 2, instead it will be “an epic single-player adventure” just like the original game. For some, this will be cause for celebration, as co-op and multiplayer features can often water down what otherwise could have been a great single-player game.

Sony will be going live with the PlayStation Showcase on Wednesday at 9PM BST. During the stream, we expect to see new gameplay for Spider-Man 2, alongside confirmation of a September release date.

KitGuru Says: I was a huge fan of 2018's Spider-Man and with the sequel bringing in new fan-favourite villains like Venom, I'm very excited to see what Insomniac does next.
