Spider-Man 2 is officially the fastest-selling PlayStation Studios game ever.

PlayStation announced the news in a tweet on 23 October.

Great news, Spidey fans — Marvel’s #SpiderMan2PS5 has sold more than 2.5 million copies in the first 24 hours. Thanks for making this a high-flying launch!”, the tweet said.

The game has taken over Santa Monica Studio’s God of War Ragnarok, which was released in 2022 and previously held the record of the most day-one launch sales.

Eric Lempel, SVP, Global Marketing, Sales, and Business Operations, Sony Interactive Entertainment said: “Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is Insomniac Games’ third installment in the franchise for PlayStation. Built from the ground up to take advantage of the unique features of PlayStation 5, the goal was to massively build off the action, storylines, and features from the first two games.

“With an epic storyline, two playable super heroes, a visually-stunning Marvel’s New York, and so much more, this is a game you can get lost in for hours. On behalf of Sony Interactive Entertainment, I want to say thank you to the fans – we truly hope you are enjoying your time playing as Peter and Miles in this amazing adventure.”

Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man 2 is exclusive to PS5 and it is the third instalment in the series. Players follow Miles Morales and Peter Parker who face various threats while they are trying to overcome difficulties in their personal lives.
