When does Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 take place?

When speaking with Press Start, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2’s creative director Brian Intihar confirmed that the game’s events would occur roughly 10 months after those of the Miles Morales game. Intihar continued by saying that at this point, Peter and Miles make a fantastic duo.

When asked to elaborate on the timeline, Intihar said, “It’s about 10 months after the events of Miles Morales, so Miles has kind of gone through his journey to understand what kind of Spider-Man he wants to be and he and Peter are a great team. And that’s kind of where we kick things off at the beginning of this game.”
