The Amazing Spider-Man 2 game for Xbox One may have been canceled, according to rumors surrounding Activision. Could the PlayStation 4 be getting another exclusive?
While video games based on movies usually aren’t that good, the Spider-Man tie-ins have shown to be surprisingly well supported. That particular series of video games has gained relatively positive reviews, breaking the long-time trend when others fail miserably. Tying in with the upcoming film The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Activision could be making yet another hit. Unfortunately the current generation Microsoft console has been the subject of second thoughts.
While the film has Peter Parker’s alter ego up against three new villains, the Amazing Spider-Man 2 game has been adding more villains such as Venom/Carnage and Kingpin.
The film’s spinoff Sinister Six is said to feature none of the original members, turning the rumors surrounding the next couple of movies all the more rampant. Of course we haven’t seen Doctor Octopus or Vulture aside from the trailer Easter Eggs, so they could be bound for one of the two films.
When a gaming news site noticed that EB Games in Australia was canceling pre-orders for the game based on the upcoming film, another one found that Activision had removed all mention of the Xbox One version from the website.

Activision told a UK trade site that the Amazing Spider-Man 2 release date and all other details surrounding the game on Xbox One are officially “to be determined,” including whether or not the game would come to the Microsoft console at all. The words used were, “We want to inform you that we are revising our release plans for [Amazing Spider-Man 2] on Xbox One. When and whether ASM2 is released on Xbox One is TBD.”
Activision could simply be delaying the game, though they didn’t state that outright. Nothing is known about the fate of the Amazing Spider-Man 2 game on Xbox One for now, but it looks like the PlayStation 4 could be gaining another exclusive.
