Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is almost here – just one more day until it hits PlayStation 5 exclusively on October 20. We loved it – read Game Informer’s review of it here – and are excited for everyone to get their hands on it. Yesterday, we learned Insomniac Games recommends players download the day one patch for the “best experience” before starting the first mission, and now, we’ve learned when to expect the fan-favorite New Game Plus feature in the sequel.
As first reported by PlayStation Lifestyle, someone asked Insomniac Games community director James Stevenson if New Game Plus and mission replay will be in the game at launch. Stevenson said, “No, we’re working on an update for those features but they won’t be in Day 1.”

After someone on Twitter expressed their disappointment in the replies, Stevenson clarified that New Game Plus was not a Day 1 feature in the original Marvel’s Spider-Man, but instead a mode added roughly six weeks after launch.
Someone else asked Stevenson on Twitter if New Game Plus is coming this year or 2024 and Stevenson said it “should be before end of year.”
