Insomniac’s Spider-Man 2 is releasing in September according to Venom’s voice actor

Tony Todd, the voice of Venom in the upcoming Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, revealed on Twitter that the game will be arriving in September 2023, with promotions starting in August.

The details:

  • Todd responded to an excited fan in a recent tweet, confirming that Insomniac Games is currently planning to release the title in September, roughly two years after the game's official announcement. Todd claimed in the tweet, "Looks like September! Massive publicity coming in August. Commercials start dropping in August so I'm told. Hold on to your ... and hold your breath! Gonna be necessary." As expected, it appears that Todd was not given permission to leak the game’s release schedule, as the tweet has since been deleted, and he has since posted a follow-up tweet informing everyone that there will be no more information coming directly from him.
  • The news of marketing ramping up so close to the game's release date has caused some concern among fans who are eagerly awaiting the title's gameplay. Sony has yet to showcase the game outside of a handful of screenshots and a teaser trailer from its original announcement, but players can expect a jump in graphical quality from 2020's Spider-Man: Miles Morales since the game is a PlayStation 5 (PS5) exclusive and is not bound by the constraints of the PlayStation 4. Another PlayStation State of Play is planned to air before June's E3, according to insider Jeff Grubb, so we could see an official gameplay reveal during the show.
  • Todd's Venom will serve as the main antagonist in the sequel, with the original Spider-Man game implying that the symbiote controls Peter Parker's childhood friend, Harry Osborn. The game's reveal trailer also implies that Kraven the Hunter may appear as a villain in the game after fans recognized the character's voice despite the character not appearing directly on screen. It appears that the August marketing window will include some vague plot information, so we'll likely learn more about who else will join the cast of villains.
