Insomniac Games worked on multiplayer modes for Marvel's Spider-Man, PC files suggest

Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered (opens in new tab)is an exclusively single-player experience, as is its follow-up Spider-Man: Miles Morales, which is coming to PC soon. But it appears developer Insomniac Games toyed with the idea of multiplayer in its open-world superhero game, as suggested by information uncovered within the PC version’s executable file.

The initial discovery was made by Twitter user DniweTamp, who posted two images showing lines of text purportedly from the game’s executable. One image references a phrase “Superior Spider-Man”, which can be applied to either Peter Parker or Miles Morales. Other lines make reference to red and blue teams, which alongside the phrase “Superior Spider-Man”, imply that Insomniac was working on some form of competitive multiplayer mode for its game.
