Sony’s upcoming remaster of PS4’s Marvel’s Spider-Man has been under a lot of heat from the game’s fans due to a plethora of issues. One of them is the developers changing the face of Peter Parker from the original game for the PS5 version which is set to launch this fall alongside the PS5.
This new change wasn’t well-received by the millions of the fans of the game but it seems though some people really took it to a different level if Creative Director Bryan Intihar’s recent Tweet is any indication.
To our Spidey fans: I totally appreciate your passion, but sending me threatening notes that you will “HUNT YOU DOWN AND WE WILL FIND YOU! YOU FIX THIS NOW!” isn’t cool. With what’s happening in today’s world, let’s be a force for good and be respectful of each other. Thank you.

Bryan isn’t the first Creative Director to receive such foul comments. Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann also suffered a similar fate earlier this year before the launch of the studio’s highly anticipated title The Last Of Us Part 2.
Moreover, Actor Laura Bailey, who played the role of Abby in The Last Of Us Part 2 also received malicious comments over social media.
Man. I try to only post positive stuff on here… but sometimes this just gets a little overwhelming. I blacked out some of the words cuz, ya know, spoilers.
Side note. Thank you to all the people sending me positive messages to balance it out. It means more than I can say.❤️ pic.twitter.com/kGyULWPpNu
