E3 2017 is finally right around the corner and in addition to all the leaks and rumors, some companies have started to reveal what they’ll be showing at this year’s event. Already, fans have heard from companies like Ubisoft and Nintendo regarding most of their plans, including a few teases for unannounced content as well. Responding to a Tweet put out by Geoff Keighley, the Insomniac Games Twitter account all but confirmed that its mysterious Spider-Man game for the PlayStation 4 would also be making an appearance at the show.
Insomniac’s response arrived after Keighley’s Tweet revealed the upcoming schedule for E3 Colosseum, a brand new main stage event at E3 2017 which showcases interviews, gameplay demos, and behind the scenes looks at many upcoming games. On Tuesday, June 13, fans can get a behind the scenes look at Spider-Man starting at 4:30 pm Pacific Time as both Insomniac and Marvel take the stage to show the game off to the public.

Since its surprising reveal last year during Sony’s E3 2016 press conference, Insomniac Games has basically flown under the radar and out of sight. The highly anticipated title has essentially skipped every major event following its announcement, so fans have only had the initial trailer to comb through for details. The only definitive information Insomniac has released is that the game runs on the Ratchet & Clank engine, and the studio’s intention is to really showcase all of the things that make this character awesome.
Still, fans have a number of unanswered questions, the biggest of which may be as to when it actually launches. While neither Insomniac or Sony have said anything definitive on the matter, Marvel VP and Executive Editor of Marvel Digital Media, Ryan Penagos, may have let the cat out of the bag by revealing a 2017 launch window during one of his recent online shows. Whether or not this is true, the real answer is likely only days away, as Spider-Man is expected to be a major contributor to Sony’s E3 2017 press conference plans on Monday, June 12, 2017.
Do you think we’ll actually be getting all the details next week or is Insomniac taking their time with this one? Let’s hear your predictions down in the comments below.
Spider-Man currently doesn’t have a release date, though it is a PlayStation 4 exclusive. Stay tuned to Game Rant for more information on this upcoming title.
