Spider Man is Joining Crystal Dynamic's Avengers Game, but Only on PlayStation

The console wars are back, baby.

I’ve gone on record a few times saying that the console war is more or less over, given how the only thing consoles really have for ammunition are exclusives, and on that front the PC generally has them all beat a few times over. But sometimes bitterness between console owners ignites in earnest, and recently Marvel’s Avenger’s developer Crystal Dynamics stoked those flames pretty harshly with an announcement that one of Marvel’s most popular characters, Spider-Man, would be a PlayStation exclusive.

From the PlayStation Blog:

It’s never been a better time to be a spider-fan! The team at Crystal Dynamics, along with our partners, are overjoyed that we get to be a part of this hero’s gaming journey. We can’t wait for you to add Spider-Man to your Marvel’s Avengers roster in early 2021, and as we’ve promised before, he will be available at no additional cost to owners of the base game, exclusively on PlayStation.


Now, this makes enough sense from a business standpoint: Sony owns the rights to Spider-Man. And while they’ve recently shown a willingness to share this extremely popular IP with daddy Disney, it makes enough sense they’d want to keep him for themselves for this highly-anticipated triple-A game.

The Avengers game is set to launch September 3, later this year.
