Firstly, be sure to take this with a grain of salt. As with all unofficial announcements, this one could be about a whole range of different possibilities. What transpired was that Nadji Jeter, the actor who played Miles Morales in the standalone expansion, uploaded a photograph of himself to Instagram. In it, he is fully clad in a motion-capture suit. Soon after uploading the picture, it was taken down. This would insinuate that it was either uploaded accidentally, although that seems highly unlikely, or more realistically, it was a tease for a future project. Don’t worry, you can still see the picture here.
Now, this is particularly interesting news, as it could potentially mean that production has begun on the sequel. It would also confirm that Miles is going to be in the sequel, although that was pretty much a given. How soon a new title in the series could be released is completely up in the air at this point, and dependent on how much Insomniac decides to alter the game’s base formula. Miles Morales was able to be released only two years after the original game because it is ostensibly the same game with a different story. If the sequel is set in the same location, and features mostly the same combat, then I’d assume a quick turnaround is possible.
What Do You Think?
Unfortunately, this is all we know now. Hopefully, a more official announcement will be made soon. But until then, all we can do is speculate. What would you like to see different in a Spider-Man sequel? Which villains would you like to see make an appearance? Let us know on our various social media.
