Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that it is pulling the plug on the upcoming Spider-Man 4 video game. The game was set to be released in 2021, but Sony has decided to cancel the project due to “various circumstances”.
The game was set to be a sequel to the critically acclaimed Spider-Man 3 game, which was released in 2007. The game was set to feature a new story and a new set of villains, as well as a new open-world environment.
The game was being developed by Insomniac Games, the same studio behind the popular Marvel’s Spider-Man game. It was set to be released on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles.
Sony has not given any further details on why the game was cancelled, but it is likely due to the fact that the game was not meeting the company’s expectations. It is also possible that the game was cancelled due to the recent success of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, which was released in November 2020.
This news is sure to be a disappointment to fans of the Spider-Man franchise, as the game was set to be a major release for the series. However, Sony has stated that they are still committed to the Spider-Man franchise and will continue to support it in the future.
It is unclear if the game will ever be released, but for now, it looks like Sony has pulled the plug on Spider-Man 4.
Sony Interactive Entertainment have decided to bury plans for a video game adaptation of the new Spider-Man 4 movie before it even saw the light of day.
The new movie is due to be released next year and the film’s producers and Sony had originally planned to create a video game based on the movie for Playstation systems – with the promise of an exciting, action-packed game perfect for all ages.
Sony claimed that due to the impending release date of the movie next year, plans for the game had become too drawn out and complicated to ensure a quality product without forcing a delay on the movie’s release. Sony have said that they would continue to work with the developers to create a world-class game once the release date of the movie is more manageable. They often cite changes to the script of Spider-Man 4 as the key issue stopping progress of the game.
Fans of the Spider-Man series have expressed their disappointment in the decision from Sony and are eager for more details on the upcoming game – which was due to feature characters on a scale never before seen in a Spider-Man game.
Sony may need to re-evaluate their decision in the hope to keep fans of the Spider-Man franchise happy. As they remain committed to producing a quality game for one of the most famous superheroes, they should keep the public informed whenever there are more developments and use social media to build anticipation and engagement.
