The ‘Spider-Man’ PS4 Game Is Said To Be The Start Of An Interconnected ‘Marvel’ Gaming Universe

Within 3 days of its launch, Marvel’s Spider-Man broke records to become the quickest selling video game for the PlayStation 4 console. Now beacuse of this success, over the weekend, Marvel Games’ executive director Bill Roseman tweeted that the popular game will act like Iron-Man did for the Marvel Cinematic Universe which means that Spider-Man will jump-start an interconnected universe of superhero games. In an interview with GameSpot, Insomniac Games’ creative director Bryan Intihar, stated, “The funny thing that Marvel and I talk a lot about is this is the Iron-Man, this is the one that’s going to start it off.” It was that statement that prompted Roseman’s tweet. “One of my fave parts of this video is when @bryanintihar talks about how Marvel’s Spider-Man is intended as ‘the Iron Man of Marvel video games,'” wrote Roseman. “Which is exactly how we view it. As with that first MCU hit, #SpiderManPS4 kicks off a new era for Marvel console games.” So we can expect several interconnected titles, such as a Black Panther, Thor or even Captain America that will take over the gaming industry through their cross-overs.
