And Spider-Man 2 is set to introduce more characters, namely, Kraven, Venom, and the Lizard. Even Spider-Cop’s cop buddy Yuri will be returning, but as Wraith. Moreover, with the confirmation of Venom joining Sony’s gaming universe, the hype reached a whole new level. For two reasons, firstly, we get venom, and second, symbiote Spidey.

However, even with so much going for the franchise, a controversial logo has ignited a lot of speculations. 


The Studios’ unveiled their latest logo, showing off their celebrated titles. These include classics like God of War, The Last of Us, Ghost of Tsushima, Horizon and more.


However, new logo of PlayStation Studios does not feature Peter or Miles. Adding on to this, there is no other Insomniac Games creation that could make it to the poster.

Insider Suggests the Main Villain of Spider-Man 2 Is Neither Kraven Nor Venom, So Who Is It?

As expected the poster immediately went viral and considering the release of their next project is just days away, fans are left wondering why the Spider-Man games have been omitted.

Fans looking for Spider-Man 2

The new logo took all the netizens by surprise. It was a matter of time before the PS fans started asking for a justification from the makers. The call-out was followed by a range of fan theories on what might be happening behind the curtains. 

Given the success and popularity of the Spider-Man games, it’s sad, and shocking to see the games missing.

A PS user tried to justify the move by stating their case. The user thinks that this might indeed be a marketing strategy by Sony to announce their arrival in the next quarter of 2023. 

The search for the superhero doesn’t stop. 

This user has perfectly summed up everyone’s thoughts with words of the infamous Daily Bugle reporter,  famously played by JK Simmons.

Another user is furious at the new logo as he calls out the makers for putting comparatively underachieving games rather than some classics.
