Marvel 's Avengers launched controversial web when it announced Spider-Man was joiningWould take the game as a post-launch DLC exclusive to PlayStation. Now we know he was a late addition to an already established list.
"We already had a full list of all the heroes that we were going to release, plans for years in advance, and certainly all that we currently have underway, " Marvel 's Avengers , the battle leader, Vince Napoli told me. "And then we added Spider-Man too. "
I ask if the PlayStation exclusive meant a lighter workload for devs, or required less working time due to its status as a single platform. "There is no savings there," says Napoli before going into details regarding the die-making process.cision. "I remember the first time this was discussed it was like 'Hey, what if we just did Spider-Man too? ' And I was like 'Is this a joke? You Are you kidding? Is this for Are We Really Serious? ' "They were, and the team had to " think outside the box "to fit Spider-Man into the pre-existing timeline.
Despite this late addition, Spider-Man will be a fully fleshed out character when he joins Marvel 's Avengers on PlayStation in early 2021. "Whenever we talk about players getting a new hero , there is no shortcut, "Napoli said. "There 's no ' Let's just throw this one on the slab, get this one out quickly or make a budget version of it again. '"

Amos elaborated a bit further: "So the beauty of Spider-Man and what Spider-Man stands for as a character in this world is, again, it comes down to the relationship with PlayStation and Marvel. We are the ones who can perform and deliver when it comes to choosing where and what Spider-Man can be, it's a relationship issue that you know PlayStation absolutely has the rights as you know with Sony. s [movie rights] there and Marvel with Sony saying, "hey, this is something we can do, this is something we can do on this platform" and as creators , we have this opportunity to create something unique and fun and awesome. "
