Marvel’s Spider-Man is now all but on shelves, as developer Insomniac Games announces the title has officially gone gold.
Going gold means that development has concluded on the game, and all that is left is to get it to fans. Insomniac announced the game’s gold status on Twitter, with an image reminiscent of a popular meme that is known to have some, uh, self-congratulatory connotations. Appropriate in context, but maybe not what the studio was going for?
We are pleased to announce that #SpiderManPS4 has GONE GOLD for its worldwide release on September 7th. Thanks to @PlayStation and @MarvelGames for their support in the creation of this original Spider-Man adventure. pic.twitter.com/iD4mJmqGfK

The Spider-Man hype has been ramping up exponentially since the game’s major showing at E3 2018. There we saw a new gameplay demonstration and learned of several of the villains that will give Spider-Man a hard time in this new adventure. Some popular villains that missed the E3 2018 demo were later leaked by a voice actor or revealed during last week’s Comic-Con, while another was teased by a developer to be missing out on the new game. Speaking of leaked villains, fans already knew of Kingpin’s involvement in Spider-Man from the first gameplay demo, but leaked gameplay recently teased a boss fight with the crime-lord.
Marvel’s Spider-Man is slated to launch September 7th, exclusively on PlayStation 4.
