Insomniac Games has a long history with Sony. Its first game, Spyro the Dragon, was a 3D platformer exclusive for the original PlayStation that came out in 1998. Insomniac is also behind the Ratchet & Clank games, which combine 3D platformer and shooter elements. That series debuted on the PlayStation 2 and has had releases on every Sony console since. But Insomniac also made Sunset Overdrive, a 2014 open-world game that was exclusive to the Xbox One.
Spider-Man has an even longer history with gaming, with his first electronic adventure appearing on the Atari 2600. But 2004’s Spider-Man 2 often stands out for fans thanks its open-world web-swinging, something that Insomniac’s game looks to capture as well.
