The game’s popularity led the company to release a spin-off game called Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and announcing the sequel to the first game. Due to their excellent track record, some fans have requested to see members of the Avengers join the universe and make it bigger.
Avengers of the Insomniac universe?
As the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to grow and become more popular, many fans are wondering why we don’t have a AAA video game based on every character. Considering the popularity of the Avengers and other MCU characters, it would easily sell a lot of copies.
The Vice President and Creative Director of Marvel Games also weighed in on the matter and noted that such a move would hurt the characters and the overall goals of the company. Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, he said:
“We have all these different realities. Now they’re all real, and we want to give everyone the freedom to tell their story. We don’t mean “you can’t blow up the moon, because this game here by another studio needs the moon”. We want to give everyone the freedom and the free way to tell their story.
I’m pretty sure insomniacs build their own universe. But that’s about all for now

Too many characters would probably lower the quality of things focusing on a few characters max is better

Many fans agreed with his point of view as Iinsomnia games works best with fewer characters. In Marvel’s Spidermanwe only saw Peter Parker and other characters from his rogue gallery, but this allowed the developers to flesh out the story and improve the gameplay experience.
Some also pointed to fatigue with the MCU, as the studio churned out content like there was no tomorrow, with Phase 4 being even tougher.
