Spider-Man Is Coming To Xbox Later This Year

Finally, our friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man is swimming his way back to Xbox with Marvel’s Midnight Suns. Happy days!

It’s been a while since Spider-Man appeared on the Xbox console. Recently, the webbed hero has been tied to exclusive deals on Sony’s PlayStation. Namely with Marvel’s Spider-Man from Insomniac Games as well-being exclusive DLC for Marvel’s Avengers.

Spider-Man is back on xbox!

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe that the last time Spider-Man officially appeared on an Xbox console was with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in 2014 and the port of Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 in 2016. So, it’s fair to say that Peter Parker’s return to Xbox is long overdue.

We’re thrilled to invite players into the darker, supernatural side of Marvel,” said Bill Rosemann, Vice President, and Creative Director at Marvel Games. “In Marvel’s Midnight Suns, our friends at Firaxis and 2K have created an incredibly unique and totally authentic Marvel experience that fans can leap into this October!
