During an interview with Famitsu, Jim Ryan shared his thoughts on the questions about the upcoming Spider-Man title. He is excited about the launch of Spider-Man 2 this year due to the success of its predecessor. He said, “Marvel’s Spider-Man released on PS4 is the touchstone. The title was a huge success on PS4 and was enjoyed by millions of users.”

And he was hopeful that the new title would be a success too, thanks to the works of its developers. The title is being developed exclusively for the PlayStation 5. This exclusivity to the console will help the developer to not make compromises and deliver their best product.
