With the annual video game expo, E3, coming up very soon, PlayStation has announced that the new Spidey game will be one-fourth of the company’s presentation. In fact, the game has been the largest game in development for the past six months.

Lozano’s art will be featured as the cover art for European game magazines, according to Bill Rosemann, Marvel Games Executive Creative Director in promotion for the games worldwide release this fall.
The time and effort being put into this game show that Marvel and Sony expect it to be a massive release for the new games division. Ideally, this will be the start to a games franchise akin to the Lord of the Rings and Star Wars game series’, meaning games releasing which means synergy with the Marvel films, but a universe all its own. At least, this is the hope of the game creators and directors of Marvel Games. There’s a wealth of material to pull from, after all.
