Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that it has cancelled the development of its upcoming Spider-Man 4 video game. The game was set to be released on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles, but the company has decided to scrap the project due to development issues.
The game was first announced in 2019 and was set to be a sequel to the critically acclaimed Spider-Man 3 game. It was set to feature a new story and a new set of characters, as well as a new open-world environment. However, the development of the game has been plagued with issues, leading to the decision to cancel the project.
In a statement, Sony Interactive Entertainment said: “We have made the difficult decision to cancel the development of Spider-Man 4. We understand that this news will be disappointing to many of our fans, but we believe that it is the best decision for the franchise.”
The statement went on to say that the company is “committed to delivering the best possible gaming experiences to our fans” and that it will “continue to explore new ways to bring Spider-Man to life in our games.”
The cancellation of the game is a major blow to fans of the franchise, who were eagerly awaiting the release of the game. It is also a major setback for Sony, which had been hoping to capitalize on the success of the previous Spider-Man games.
It is unclear what the future holds for the Spider-Man franchise, but it is likely that Sony will look to develop a new game in the near future. Until then, fans of the franchise will have to make do with the existing games in the series.
Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced the cancellation of their much-anticipated Spider-Man 4 video game, citing development issues as the reason.
The highly-anticipated Spider-Man 4 video game was slated to be a PlayStation 4 exclusive, developed at Sony’s San Diego Studio. Unfortunately, the project has since been cancelled.
The Spider-Man 4 video game would have been a follow-up to the critically acclaimed PlayStation 4 hit, Marvel’s Spider-Man, which was released in 2018. This new game was going to build upon the narrative established in the previous title, while also introducing several new elements.
However, developmental problems caused the project to be put on hold. Although Sony hasn’t gone into great detail about the issues that caused the cancellation, it’s likely that the game’s script and other technical issues needed to be brought up to par.
This wasn’t the only spider-Man game in development. At one point, there was also an Insomniac-developed Spider-Man title on the way, though it’s unclear if that project has also been scrapped.
For now, Sony Interactive Entertainment has removed the game from any and all their promotional materials. Fans of the series will have to wait until the studio finds a better way to approach the franchise, though it’s likely that any future Spider-Man titles in development will be for the PlayStation 5.
