Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 has officially achieved the gold status, and to commemorate this significant milestone in the development of the sequel, Insomniac Games assembled a group of the game’s voice actors to make the announcement. Both actors who lend their voices to the Spider-Men characters, namely Yuri Lowenthal (Peter Parker) and Nadji Jeter (Miles Morales), were joined by Laura Bailey (Mary-Jane Watson) and Tony Todd (Venom) for this special occasion. Jeter displayed exceptional enthusiasm, while Todd tantalized fans with a chilling celebratory line that cleverly references the symbiote’s iconic catchphrase.

Traditionally, achieving gold status signifies that the primary development phase has concluded, and the game is now ready to be manufactured onto a physical disc or downloaded for play, without any anticipated release date delays. Typically, studios reach this significant milestone several weeks before the game’s launch and utilize the additional time to further refine and polish the game for its initial release. It is not uncommon for a day-one patch to be released, which includes various adjustments and updates to ensure the product is fully prepared for launch.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is poised to make a triumphant return to Manhattan, as early previews for the game have been overwhelmingly positive. Tamoor Hussain, in GameSpot’s preview of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, wrote, “As the sequel to the critically acclaimed and beloved Marvel’s Spider-Man, and its Miles Morales-focused pseudo-sequel, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2—a true numbered sequel—seems to be taking everything that developer Insomniac created for those two games and amalgamating it into a fresh experience that also introduces new concepts on top of its solid foundation.”
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will be exclusively released for the PS5 on October 20. For more information, you can explore everything we know about Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, the required storage space on your PS5 for the sequel, and how the enhanced gameplay mechanics transform you into an agile improviser.
