Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 has sold through over 2.5 million copies within 24 hours to become the fastest-selling PlayStation Studios launch of all time.
The sequel debuted on October 20, 2023, exclusively for PlayStation 5, and is a direct follow-up to Marvel’s Spider-Man and its spin-off Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
The title lets players control both spider-men as they fight crime and sling webs at familiar foes across an expanded New York.
Spider-Man success story
Insomniac’s take on Marvel’s iconic webhead has become a lucrative addition to Sony’s roster of first-party franchises. As of June 2022, both the original title (including the remastered edition that landed in 2020) and the Morales-centric offshoot had sold a combined 33 million copies worldwide.
The PC version of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered managed to shift 1.5 million copies in roughly eight months, earning $52 million in revenue.
Back in2018, the original release eventually sold more than 9 million copies in the space of three months, so it’ll be interesting to see if the sequel can match that pace moving forward.
