Marvel’s Spider-Man has sold over 20m copies on PS4

Two years after the game’s original release, Marvel’s Spider-Man has passed another huge milestone for Sony and developer Insomniac Games. It has now been reported that the power-selling PlayStation 4 exclusive has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide.


This latest update comes via trusted source Timur222 on Twitter who can often be found digging up fascinating industry data. Their latest discovery is the LinkedIn profile of PlayStation Global Marketing Leader, David Bull, who worked on the campaign for Marvel’s Spider-Man. Here, he stats that the superhero PS4 title has sold over 20 million units. It’s worth mentioning that neither Sony or Insomniac Games have verified this figure.

Still, it’s not impossible to imagine Spider-Man hitting that sales mark. As of August 2019, the game had already sold 13 million copies. Being such a huge financial success explains why Sony were keen to have Spider-Man: Miles Morales in the PS5 launch line-up, as well as justifying the decision for a full-on remaster of the original game.

We recently reviewed Spider-Man: Miles Morales on PS5, scoring the semi-sequel a spectacular 8 out of 10:

Spider-Man: Miles Morales feels like more of a sequel than it is a stopgap, entangling players within its web of cleverly refined mechanics while delivering some familiar web-slinging thrills. A heroic technical showcase for PS5 owners picking up their consoles on day one, this meaty side story in the Spider-Man saga has us even more excited than before to see what Insomniac Games have planned next.
