Wondering about Spider-Man 2 co-op? Marvel's Spider-Man game has been a massive success since its release. It's no doubt that it would turn up a sequel, which has already been confirmed two years ago. While the first game is known for its single-player story, players have been wondering if its second game may consider having co-op gameplay.

In this guide, we'll break down whether Spider-Man 2 is due to have co-op gameplay or not. Given it's geared around the new partnership between Peter Parker and Miles Morales, it's worth digging into.

Is Spider-Man 2 co-op?

Sadly no, Spider-Man 2 will not feature co-op gameplay.

Back in 2022, Miles Morales' voice actor, Nadji Jeter, shared information about Spider-Man 2, along with teasers of co-op play. In a panel from SacAnime Summer 2022, Jeter answered a few questions about Miles Morales' roles in the game. During the Q&A portion of his panel, he was asked if players would be able to team up as Miles and Peter Parker. Jeter responded, "I don't know if it's been announced or not, but I think so."

That answer from Jeter sent fans of the game franchise into excitement, and hopes for co-op play in the wildly popular Spider-Man game. However, these teasers were shut down by a tweet from Insomniac Games.

The developer confirmed on Twitter that Spider-Man 2 is an "epic single-player adventure," so what Jeter teased before last year is now invalid in terms of co-op gameplay. But it's still possible for players to play as the various web-slinging characters in this Spider-Man sequel.

Therefore, you'll be focused on single-player action in Spider-Man 2, instead of a co-op adventure. This makes sense, give the history of the franchise and Insomniac's games, but it does dash fan dreams of swinging across New York with a friend in tow.
