In a shocking move, Activision has confirmed that the release of The Amazing Spider-man 2 for Xbox One has been delayed indefinitely, and may never actually release. This news comes after a Neogaf poster found a piece of marketing material in which the Xbox One version was suspiciously absent (seen to the right).
An Activision rep told MCVUK the following “We want to inform you that we are revising our release plans for ASM2 on Xbox One. When and whether ASM2 is released on Xbox One is TBD.” Eurogamer received a similar comment, with a representative saying “We are working with Microsoft in an effort to release The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game on Xbox One. Currently, the game will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and the PC on 2nd May, 2014 as previously announced.” (May 2nd is the European release date)
No reason has been given as of yet for the delay, and it is likely to come as a disappointment to many Web-heads out there. As of 1pm central time, the game is still available for pre-order on websites like Amazon and Gamestop, who both still have the release date set for April 29th. It especially strange that a game would be delayed or cancelled just two weeks before it’s release, which leads me to believe that there must have been something game-breakingly wrong about the Xbox One version to warrant an 11th hour delay. Amazing Spider-man 2 will still release on April 29th for PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC and Nintendo 3DS.
