No, Spider-Man 2 is not a cross-platform game. The highly anticipated sequel is currently exclusive to the PlayStation 5 (PS5) console.

Exclusively on PS5
Developer Insomniac Games has confirmed that Spider-Man 2 will only be playable on the PS5 when it launches in Fall 2023. There are currently no plans for the game to be released on other platforms like the PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, or PC.
This PS5 exclusivity allows Insomniac to take full advantage of the next-gen console’s impressive technical capabilities and hardware features like the ultra-fast SSD, ray tracing support, and the innovative Dual Sense controller haptics.
Hopes for Future Ports
While Spider-Man 2 is locked to the PS5 for now, some fans are optimistic that ports for other systems could happen down the line. However, there have been no official announcements regarding this from Sony Interactive Entertainment or Insomniac Games.
The original Marvel’s Spider-Man title remains a PlayStation exclusive over 4 years after its 2018 launch. This precedent makes hopes of Xbox, Nintendo Switch, or PC ports of the sequel seem unlikely at this stage.
Thrilling Gameplay Awaits on PS5
Even as a console exclusive, Spider-Man 2 is shaping up to be one of 2023’s most exciting superhero games. Players will be able to freely web swing across a stunningly realized Manhattan as both Peter Parker and Miles Morales.
The sequel promises to build on the strong foundations of the original game and 2020s Miles Morales spin-off. Exciting new features include the ability to seamlessly switch between playing as Peter or Miles at any time.
Early previews have earned Spider-Man 2 extremely positive impressions so far. As of writing, the game holds an admirable 89 Metascore on Metacritic based on 12 critic reviews.
With its Fall 2023 launch creeping closer, Marvel fans will need access to a PS5 console to enjoy Spider-Man’s latest blockbuster gaming adventure. Hopefully, ports to other platforms could materialize down the line, so more players globally can experience the web-slinging fun.
