Insomniac Games Reveals Estimated Length of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Campaign on PS5
Insomniac Games, the renowned developer behind the critically acclaimed Marvel’s Spider-Man series, has recently provided some insight into the anticipated length of the upcoming sequel’s campaign. While exact numbers were not disclosed, the studio did indicate that the duration of the game will be comparable to its predecessor, Spider-Man PS4.
What’s Spider-Man 2 PS5’s Estimated Length?
For fans eager to gauge the potential length of Spider-Man 2’s campaign, a glance at HowLongtoBeat can offer some useful benchmarks. The main story in Spider-Man 1 typically took around 17 hours to complete. Players who ventured into side missions spent an average of 25.5 hours playing the game, while completionists dedicated approximately 34.5 hours to fully exploring all that Spider-Man 1 had to offer. Although these times can vary depending on individual play styles, it seems reasonable to expect the campaign length of Spider-Man 2 to fall within the range of 15-18 hours on average.
Insomniac’s Focus on Quality Over Quantity
In a recent interview with GamesIndustry.biz, Insomniac’s senior creative director, Bryan Intihar, shed further light on the studio’s approach to Spider-Man 2’s campaign length. Intihar emphasized that the team did not want to artificially extend the game’s duration merely for the sake of creating a larger sequel.
“It’s not like we’ve doubled the size of the game,” Intihar stated. “We want to do what is right for the vision, the time, and attention you need to create that experience and also take care of our team.”
This dedication to preserving the integrity of the game’s vision while ensuring a healthy work-life balance for the development team is commendable. By resisting the temptation to simply inflate the game’s length, Insomniac is prioritizing the quality and immersive experience that fans have come to expect from the Spider-Man series.
Intihar even humorously quipped about the consequences of attempting to create an excessively long game, saying, “I would end up with a lot less hair” if Insomniac tried to tackle the daunting task of making a 200-hour game.
While the exact number of hours required to complete Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 on the PS5 remains undisclosed, the similarities in campaign length between the first game and its highly anticipated sequel provides a clear indication of what fans can expect. Insomniac Games’ commitment to crafting a rich, engaging experience while prioritizing the well-being of their development team is a testament to their passion for the Spider-Man franchise and their recognition of what truly matters in creating a memorable gaming experience.
