Trailer for Canceled Spider-Man Game Leaked Online

Spider-Man: The Great Web was a proposed five-person multiplayer with a live service foundation, only revealed last December as in development from Insomniac but already pulled from production. Way to get our hopes up, guys! But that's nothing compared to the anguish when a trailer for the game was leaked online today. We could have been playing as a team with Spider-Man, Spider-Gwen, Spider-Man 2099, and even Venom. They would be going up against the Sinister Six villains from the Spider-Man universe all at once.

The thing is, we don't really know why the game was cancelled. There are problems controlling multiple players in combat, and that may have spelled its doom. Players don't like live service. The developers may have been laid off. There could be any of dozens of reasons Spider-Man: The Great Web was shelved, but a look at the leaked trailer makes us hungry for the concept to come alive in some way, any way, if Insomniac can make it happen.
