Insomniac’s marketing and community director, James Stevenson, took to Twitter to reveal that the game has been further polished since the screenshots were taken, ensuring that players can immerse themselves even more deeply into the vibrant open-world environment.
Chrysler Building: Absent in Spider-Man 2
One notable absence in the upcoming release is the iconic Chrysler Building. Insomniac Games confirmed in an article published by The New York Times that the legendary skyscraper, which appeared in the original game but was absent in the spin-off title Spider-Man: Miles Morales, will not be featured in Spider-Man 2. The studio cited a failed copyright agreement with the building’s current owners, leading to its omission from the virtual New York skyline.
