Gamers and their curious minds have already come up with several speculations regarding the upcoming masterpiece of a game, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. Perhaps one of the most common speculations of all is whether “Spider-Man 2 features an online co-op multiplayer mode in-game”. This rumor has done nothing but enhance the anticipation among gamers. But let’s take a look at what the developers, Insomniac Games have in store and what they have up their sleeves for the us.

Swinging into Speculation: Is there online multiplayer in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2?

During a recent podcast appearance, Nadji Jeter, the talented voice actor behind Miles Morales in Insomniac Games’ Marvel’s Spider-Man series, dropped a hint that the upcoming Spider-Man 2 might introduce a co-op multiplayer mode. This has left fans pleasantly surprised and eagerly speculating about the game’s potential new feature.

Watch the podcast below:

Insomniac has swiftly addressed this doubt of many gamers by providing a clear answer: No, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will not be having a co-op multiplayer.

They have confirmed this through Twitter, emphasizing that the game is designed to deliver an “epic single-player adventure.”

What does this mean?

Well, this just means that maybe Jeter was pulling our legs. Sadly, the game won’t be having a co-op multiplayer mode. However, it will feature both the Spider-Men: Peter Parker and Miles Morales. From what we know from the gameplay reveal at the PlayStation Showcase, both the iconic Spider-Men are playable in the game.

The aftermath of Insomniac’s tweet had mixed reactions.

  • While many players welcomed the single-player Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 with open arms, many gamers were in denial and as they wanted a co-op feature in-game.
  • However, we don’t think it’s going to stop anyone from grabbing the game once released, especially after all the awesome stuff we were shown at the PlayStation showcase!
  • With a significant graphical leap from its predecessor and improved combat and gameplay, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 has left gamers on the edge of their seats.
  • A compelling storyline featuring two Spider-Men and iconic villains like Kraven the Hunter and Lizard has also captivated gamers worldwide.
