Spider-Man 2 for PS5: Aiming for Quality over Quantity
Senior Game Director Reveals Marvel's Spider-Man 2's Playtime Strategy
In a recent interview with VG247, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2’s senior game director, Ryan Smith, shed light on the game’s anticipated playtime. Smith’s insights reveal a deliberate choice by the development team to prioritize quality over quantity in this upcoming PS5 action title.
A Familiar Playtime Range
Smith disclosed that “Spider-Man 2 is in the same ballpark as the first game in terms of overall playtime.” To put this into perspective, the original Marvel’s Spider-Man typically required about 17 hours to complete its main story, according to data from HowLongToBeat.com. For those who delved deeper into side quests and exploration, the playtime could extend to around 25 hours. Smith mentioned that his own playthrough fell somewhere in between at approximately 21 hours, marking a clear departure from lengthier gaming experiences like Baldur’s Gate 3.
