Last night, Sony revealed that it does have a Spider-Man game in the works. However, it isn't Infamous developer Sucker Punch at the helm. It's Ratchet & Clank studio Insomniac.

In speaking with the Associated Press, Insomniac president Ted Price says that the game is not connected to the upcoming Marvel Spider-Man: Homecoming film. In fact, the game is set in a different version of the Marvel universe, and not the cinematic continuity. Marvel is working hand-in-hand with the studio.

Additionally, a Sony representative confirmed to us that it is the motivating force behind this project. Sony secured the deal, is funding the game, and chose Insomniac for this full first-party exclusive. The Spider-Man game, which still doesn't have an announced name, won't be coming to other platforms.
