Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 & Wolverine May Feature New Dialogue Technology
Insomniac Games and Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Wolverine may be featuring brand new dialogue technology, based on the latest information.
Speaking during a live stream session on Insomniac Games’ official Twitch channel, lead engine programmer Elan Ruskin revealed that the studio’s next game, likely Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and possibly even Wolverine, will feature some “very cool” dialogue technology.
As for what this new dialogue technology does is unknown for now. It’s likely that the studio will show it off during the rumored pre-E3 2023 PlayStation showcase alongside other first-party projects that are in development. According to Jeff Grubb, who is known for his connections in the game industry, Sony is saving its “good stuff” for the PlayStation Showcase that, according to him, is set to happen sometime before E3 2023.
Grubb stated that the unannounced PlayStation Showcase event was originally supposed to happen during Fall 2022. However, it kept getting pushing back, as first-party studios weren’t quite ready to show what they’ve been working on. According to Grubb, the first-party output is now ready to be revealed, and, as such, Sony will be having a “massive” show in order to set up the “second phase” of the PS5 lineup.
Previously, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 received a proper release window, with Insomniac Games’ announcement that the superhero adventure will launch in Fall 2023. The PlayStation Store page for the game is also up now and the title is available to add to the wishlist. This will inform any user who has the game on their wishlist when there is any update on the project.
In addition, Venom voice actor Tony Todd recently shared some interesting tidbits regarding the character’s involvement in the game. Speaking during a podcast, Todd suggested that Venom will be featured in set-pieces similar to the one’s involving Rhino in Spider-man Miles Morales. He specifically highlighted the scene where Miles is chasing down Rhino, while smashing through windows. He said that Venom’s presence will be in the same vein, likely implying that the character will be featured in a lot of similar, cinematic set-pieces.
