A Spider-Man 2000 developer says he is “absolutely” up for working on a modern-day remaster for the beloved classic.
Developed by the now-defunct Neversoft, and long before Insomniac’s Marvel’s Spider-Man in 2018, Spider-Man 2000 was considered to be the pinnacle of web-slinging. Perhaps there are still plenty of fans that believe that is the case.
Released on the original PlayStation, and N64, as well as various other platforms such as the SEGA Dreamcast, this Spider-Man game, was considered to be near perfection. After all, this was during a time that great comic book video game adaptations were few and far between.
However, in an interview with GamingBible, the lead designer of Spider-Man, Chad Findley detailed that while the game had its fair share of technical limitations due to its era, getting to work with the legendary Stan Lee was a career highlight.

“I got to include most of the characters we wanted, we got to add our what-if mode for tons of other cameos, and I got to voice direct Stan Lee,” said Findley. However, given that Findley seemed to have cherished his time working on the Spider-Man game, GamingBible’s Ewan More took the opportunity to ask if a remaster could be on the cards.
“While I would initially be reticent because of the nightmarish licensing and approval processes that are around these days… I absolutely would do it,” exclaimed Findley. “I love Spider-Man. It was such a great, nerdy character with stories that always have positive messages and themes while also still being exciting and fun. Stuff we need these days.”
While it’s unlikely that Spider-Man 2000 would receive a remaster or remake, I suppose you can truly never say never. Would you like to see this classic Spider-Man game receive a remaster? Let us know on Twitter.
