Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 has become a true web-slinging sensation in the exciting world of gaming, smashing sales records and winning the hearts of players all around the world. Sony has just dropped a bombshell, revealing that the game has webbed up a staggering five million copies in just 11 days since its release on the PlayStation 5.
The excitement was palpable as developer Insomniac took to X/Twitter to express their gratitude, exclaiming, “Woo! We’re incredibly honored to announce Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 on PS5 has sold over five million copies! Thank you to our incredible community for supporting us and helping us reach this milestone!”
This revelation comes after Sony had previously declared Spider-Man 2 as the fastest-selling PlayStation Studios game within the first 24 hours, racking up over 2.5 million copies in a single day. This initial surge propelled Spider-Man 2 to the top of the PlayStation day-one launch sales chart, surpassing the formidable God of War Ragnarok from Santa Monica Studio.
However, as the dust settles, God of War Ragnarok reclaims its crown, having sold 5.1 million copies in its debut week. It’s worth noting that Spider-Man 2 is a PS5 exclusive, limiting its reach to a smaller audience compared to Ragnarok, which launched on both PlayStation 4 and PS5.

Spider-Man 2’s triumph is undeniable both in the eyes of critics and the gaming community at large. Now, the anticipation builds as we ponder the future of the Spider-Man series crafted by Insomniac.

Adding fuel to the excitement, there are suggestions of Daredevil or Doctor Strange DLC in the pipeline. And, of course, the inevitable Spider-Man 3 is dangling on the horizon, ready to swing into action.
In conclusion, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 has not only swung its way into the gaming hall of fame but has also set the stage for an exciting future in the Spider-Verse. As fans eagerly await the next installment, one thing is certain – the success of Spider-Man 2 on the PS5 has firmly established its place among the gaming greats. The web-slinger’s journey is far from over, and the thrill of swinging through the streets of New York is bound to captivate players for years to come.
