During the last weekend, some rumors had anticipated the arrival of Spider-Man in Marvel’s Avengers as a PlayStation exclusive. The source from which these rumors started has denied this in the past few hours, saying that it will not be so, but apparently the source has lied its statements and wanted to make a surprise.
Through the official PlayStation Blog, Crystal Dynamics and Sony have announced that Spider-Man will be an exclusive hero for the PS4 and PS5 versions of Marvel’s Avengers, and will arrive post-launch in early 2021.
“It’s never been a better time to be a spider-fan! The team at Crystal Dynamics, along with our partners, are overjoyed that we get to be a part of this hero’s gaming journey. We can’t wait for you to add Spider-Man to your Marvel’s Avengers roster in early 2021, and as we’ve promised before, he will be available at no additional cost to owners of the base game, exclusively on PlayStation,” can be read on the official PS Blog.
Spider-Man now becomes the second additional character featured in Marvel’s Avenger, as last week’s War Table broadcast announced the arrival of Hawkeye as a reinforcement for the Avengers. Of course, in that case, Hawkeye will not be exclusive to a specific platform.
So in the end, Spider-Man will be PlayStation exclusive. There is no confusion anymore, as Sony itself has now officially confirmed it.
Marvel’s Avengers will release on September 4 for Xbox One, PS4, Google Stadia, and PC on September 4, 2020. The game will also get a next-gen upgrade and release later on PS5 and Xbox Series X.
