Spider-Man 2 release time

Spider-Man 2 is expected to be released at midnight local time on October 20, 2023, for the PlayStation 5. So yes, that’s a regional unlock time, which means the game has now been made available in Asia, Oceania, Europe, and the UK, with countries like New Zealand, Australia, and Japan being able to explore the towering skyline of New York with both webheads much earlier than others.

The only launch that’s left now is its release in the Americas, as those on the East and West Coast of the US, along with fans in South America, continue to twiddle their thumbs in anticipation.
