When it came to Marvel's Spider-Man 2, Khan said that he knew too much to speculate, but the game should be expected in 2021.

“Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, I don’t think will happenat launch [PS5], but could be a Christmas 2021 release... I know too much, so I can't speculate too much. I believe Spider-Man 2 is coming sooner than we think,” Khan said.

The ex-editor added that after seeing the sales,Insomniac Games could begin developing a sequel shortly after the release of the first part. Therefore, gamers will not have to wait long for the game.
