Activision and Beenox plan on making the first details of the next Spider-Man game known to the public on April 1st. The date wasn't chosen because the whole announcement is a prank; instead, it's right in the middle of New York's WonderCon comic book show, the perfect place to drop word on Spidey's upcoming game. (Lest you think I have some advance word, that's a picture from Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions above.)
Here's the official description
4:30-5:30 Activision Spider-Man— Marvel, Activision, and acclaimed developer Beenox are headed to WonderCon with all-new Spider-Man videogame content! First, take a tour with Beenox down memory lane of the award-winning Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, and discuss their post-launch reactions and what key learnings from the fans they are applying to future games. Next, be the first to check out exclusive details, screenshots and videos of the next Spider-Man game, with game development talent from Beenox, acclaimed Marvel writer Peter David (co-creator of Spider-Man 2099), voiceover talent Josh Keaton (voice of Spider-Man in The Spectacular Spider-Manand Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions) and Marvel’s VP of games production, TQ Jefferson.

Shattered Dimensions was universally lauded as a great game, shocking given Spidey's history with gaming, so I can only imagine that the sequel has similar "core" aspirations. Let's hope so. As of right now, we can't tell you anything else, except that Activision made a good decision to stick with Beenox for the next game, and that April 1 will bring more news. Stay tuned. Excelsior!
