Tony Todd, the actor behind the voice of Venom in Insomniac Games' newly announced Spider-Man 2 says that the game is "massive".
Replying to a fan on Twitter, Todd reaffirmed that he would be voicing the character of Venom in the PlayStation-exclusive sequel, before commenting on the size of the game and its future release date.
2 months or so. Game is massive. That's why it won't come out till. 2023

Insomniac Games revealed the first look of Spider-Man 2 at this month's PlayStation Showcase. While the announcement managed to add further hype around a busy period for everyone's favourite web-slinger, perhaps the only disappointing part of the game's reveal trailer is the wait for the game's 2023 release window. That being said, if Todd's comments are true about the sheer size of the upcoming title, then maybe its lengthy wait time is to be completely justified.
The PlayStation Showcase proved to be a busy night for Insomniac Games as the studio also announced that it is working on a separate addition to its list of Marvel games. Marvel's Wolverine was announced alongside a short teaser trailer.
